With the close of the baseball season, George Mason senior Robby Jacobsen concluded a tremendous four-year career.

He now has another accolade to add to his long list of accomplishments – he was selected to the All-CAA Second Team at the utility position.

Jacobsen, a sports management major, played 30 games in the outfield and 21 games at catcher this past season. He led the Patriots in every meaningful statistical category this season, batting .326 with 71 hits in 218 at bats.

He had 11 homers, 16 doubles, 37 RBI and 42 runs scored. He also was 20 of 24 in stolen bases. For his career, he finished all-time top 10 at Mason in games started, at-bats, hits, runs, home runs, RBI, doubles, steals and total bases.

Three other Patriots were selected to the CAA All-Rookie Team at the close of the season. First baseman Scott Krieger, outfielder Spencer Wiggins and reliever Jordan Flasher were selected to the team, which comprises 11 players.

Krieger, a business finance major, batted .303 this year with eight homers and 15 doubles. He drove in 30 runs and scored 27 runs. He saw some time in left field and at first base.

Wiggins, an information technology major, hit .287 with a .373 on-base percentage, and he stole 12 of 14 bases. He played both left and center field for the Patriots. His 12 steals were the most of those players chosen to the All-Rookie Team.

Flasher, an undeclared major, appeared in 25 games as a freshman, one shy of tying the school record for appearances in a season. He paced Mason with four saves and a 4.34 ERA. He also had a 3-1 record and struck out 26 batters in 29 innings, holding the opposition to a .248 batting average. Flasher’s four saves were tops among pitchers selected to the All-Rookie Team.

Mason finishes the year at 20-31, 12-18 in the Colonial Athletic Association.
