As you probably saw, Harvard baseball coach Joe Walsh passed away yesterday. I cam across the 2012 Season Preview from The Crimson, the student paper of Harvard. One of the best quotes from the article is below.
I remember when I first got here I looked at the schedule, and we were playing Division III teams down in Florida. The first call I made was to the University of Miami down in Florida, who were the National Champions, and I said, ‘You guys have been ducking us. When are we going to play?’ I got my three-game series. When I got back to the team, I looked at everybody’s faces, and the ones that went, ‘Yeah, we’ve got a good team,’ those were the guys I wanted…. I think the guys get excited.”
I highly recommend checking out the rest of the article which includes a couple of other great tidbits on Coach Walsh. You can click here for the full article.
