Thanks for pointing out this blog. It's going to get through December and January.

The only GWU player I knew of before this was Mike O'Connor. I see from Baseball-Reference's GWU page that five major leaguers, including Phillies 3rd base coach Sam Perlozzo, played there.

Just for fun, I looked up Virginia Military Institute (VMI), where my father also earned some college credits during World War II. The only player from there was pitcher Ryan Glynn, who appeared in 52 games for three teams between 1999 and 2005.
