Flasher Named All-Cape Cod League
Sept. 5, 2007
George Mason junior pitcher Jordan Flasher had a terrific summer in the Cape Cod League and he was rewarded by being selected to the All-Cape Team. Flasher, who was a mid-summer All-Star, was second in the league in saves with nine. On the year he was 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in 18 appearances. He pitched 20 innings with 12 hits allowed, eight walks and 25 strikeouts.
Flasher will return to Mason to pitch this spring. A quartet of former Mason players who are currently pursuing careers in professional baseball finished up their seasons this past weekend. The most successful was Jason Bour playing for Billings, Cincinnati's Rookie Pioneer League affiliate. He hit .298 with one home run, 22 RBI and a .711 OPS in 40 games. J.J. Pannell also had a solid season pitching for San Francisco's Arizona Rookie League affiliate. He was 2-1 with a 2.82 ERA in 14 relief appearances. He pitched 22.1 innings allowing 21 hits with five walks and 33 strikeouts.
Robby Jacobsen played at the highest level of any current Mason minor leaguer. Playing for Washington's Class A South Atlantic League affiliate the Hagerstown Suns, Jacobsen hit .222 in 70 games with two homers, 11 doubles, 24 RBI and 11 steals. He finished the season with batting .500 in his final five games.
Chris Fournier had his season end early after suffering a shoulder injury. He missed a large chunk of time in late June and early July before coming back to play in 21 games. With his shoulder not fully healed, his season ended on Aug. 8. Despite the injury he still managed to hit .224 with a homer, nine RBI and six steals for the Brooklyn Cyclones, the New York Mets' Class A short-season team.
The 2008 George Mason baseball season will begin on February 22 with Mason playing a three-game series at the College of Charleston.
