“I don’t think there’s another state school that can provide such a balance of campus life and academic and athletic excellence. During his four years at Mason, Zombie says he is looking forward to dividing his time between baseball, academics and future internships.
“Here I will have all the tools needed to succeed in the classroom, on the field, and ultimately, throughout the rest of my life.” Zombie was drafted in 2017 out of George Mason University, and after a month without being signed, wasn’t sure if an on-field career was in the cards.
Next up was deciding whether he would begin physical therapy school or start work in the real world. So Zombie got a job that June with Research and Development Baseball in Washington, DC, a place he still works for today.
As much as he’s accomplished on the field, most drafted players like Zombie that aren’t on the 40-man are making less than two thousand dollars a month to grind through the minors, so being employed while also playing has worked out. The company Zombie works for allows him to help high school, collegiate players, and professionals (including a couple of other Rays minor leagues).

“When it comes to pitch design or whatever it may be, I’m learning a lot on that front, both personally and through colleagues in the industry,” said Zombie. Zombie, who relies on two-seam fastball, believes his slider has grown a great deal with the Rays thanks in part to that information.
The information Zombie has received and applied has translated to an increased number of swings and misses, as he went from 6.4 strikeouts per nine innings to 8.1 last year, all while skipping a level. Trevor Kelly singled for the second time of the game to lead off the bottom of the fifth and would end up advancing to second on a throwing error from third baseman Michael Penning.
Run number two of the game for the Patriots came across in the next inning after Michael Smith and Brandon Gum led off with singles followed by a Kent Blackstone bunt that let him load the bases. Manhattan closed the gap to one run in the bottom of the eighth when Kelly fielded a ground ball at first and attempted to make a play at home.
The run was answered in the bottom frame when Jake Salish pinch hit for Derek Evans and singled home Blackstone who was on second base at the time. Joe Williams relieved Zombie with one out in the eighth inning with men on second and third base and was able to get the next two batters swinging to escape the threat and preserve the lead.
