T-minus 12 days until the Leatherneck baseball team begins the 2011 season. As the days draw near, you can feel the energy from the players and coaches increasing. I think it is safe to say, we are ready to get rid of the snowshoes and lace up the cleats. We have a very talented group of guys that have joined the team this year and are very excited to see what we can do on the field together. We had a great fall and really started to gel together both on and off the field.
We know that we are picked to finish at the back of the pack this year in the Summit League and that just fuels the fire every day. It makes everyone push each other to work harder and make it a point to get better every day. We really think that we have the talent to turn some heads this year and sneak up on some teams. But right now, we are focused on our first game of the season at Samford University. Our schedule is definitely going to challenge our squad but I wouldn’t count out the 2011 Leathernecks.
