Weston Mazey Announces Commitment to WVU Baseball

Playing for your dad may come with pressure, but Weston Mazey wasn’t going to let that stop him from being where he wants to be.

Mazey announced that he is committing to play baseball at WVU and help his father Randy Mazey continue the profession of the West Virginia baseball program in a tweet on Monday. A class of 2025 prospect, Mazey will still have to wait a couple years before he will be able to sit in the same dugout he’s already experienced as the son of the team’s skipper as a player.

“I am a Mountaineer, I represent my school, my family, then myself. I want to thank my family, coaches and teachers because without them none of this would be possible. I’m excited to be a Mountaineer and wake up everyday thankful for this opportunity,” tweeted Weston.

Weston, also known as “Wammer,” currently attends Morgantown High School and was able to play a key role for the Mohigans varsity team as a freshman last year. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of his baseball journey stems from overcoming a traumatic brain injury he suffered on the field in 2021.

Weston, an infielder, hit .308 average with a .483 on-base percentage while scoring 22 runs during the 2022 season.

Randy Mazey and his wife Amanda, a member of West Virginia media in her own right, both expressed their support and pride for their son about the news.

Randy and WVU baseball open up the 2023 season on Friday, Feb. 17 at Georgia Southern.
