The University of Mary Washington baseball team opened play for the 2013 season on Sunday in a renovated V. Earl Dickinson Stadium and in all new Nike uniforms for 2013.
The baseball team was among the first to sport new Nike gear, including uniforms and catcher's gear, form the department's contract agreement with Nike starting at the beginning of the calendar year.
Among the renovations to Dickinson Stadium, new benches and expanded dugouts with a pro-style fencing in front were added, as was a padded area stretching from dugout to dugout behind home plate, complete with the UMW logo. The sports information area behind home plate was also improved, with a platform added.
The Eagles will return to action on Saturday when they host Eastern Mennonite University at noon.
