One of just four players in the last 22 years of Bowdoin baseball to be named a captain in both his junior and senior seasons, Eric Mah was a four-year starter and All-NESCAC First Team performer for the Polar Bears.
Despite having his senior season cut short due to the cancelation of spring sports in 2020, Mah finished his career with a .293 batting average and.376 on-base percentage with 94 hits in 97 games, scoring 61 runs. Off the field, Mah was a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Leaders, a Ladd House Chair and helped organize participation at the Dempsey Challenge, Robbie Run while volunteering with Special Olympics and at Midcoast Hunger Prevention. In the spring of 2020, Mah was recognized as the Bowdoin Athletic Department’s Frederick G.P. Thorne Award recipient for Outstanding Leadership.
“I chose to attend Bowdoin because it was one of the few highly academic schools where I could play baseball,” according to Mah. “Bowdoin also has a stunning campus, great professors, and an energetic student body. Being on the baseball team has been the best part of my college experience. Being able to go to practice, lifts, meals, and games with the same group of guys over the past four years let me build lifelong friendships, and I am grateful for that.”
