George Mason junior third baseman Nick Shimer has been selected to the All-Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) first team. Also selected to the All-Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) first team this season, Shimer joins four other CAA players on the All-ECAC first team.
Shimer had a breakout year both offensively and defensively for George Mason. He posted career highs with a .349 average, 19 doubles, 9 home runs, and 41 runs batted in (RBI). He led the Patriots in doubles while ranking second in home runs and batting, and was third in RBI. Defensively, he had just six errors in 184 chances for a .967 fielding percentage.
George Mason completed the 2003 season with a 31-20 overall record and a 9-8 mark in the CAA.
