CBD JOURNAL WITH KENTUCKY WESLEYAN’S ADAM AKIN (March 8th)

Asst_Coach_Adam_AkinIt was a February afternoon in the “spring” of 2010 when I first felt baseball’s ultimate wrath. We were at West Georgia, minutes from the start of the final season opener of my baseball playing career. It was a day I had been both looking forward to and dreading for quite a long time, but there’s nothing in life that can prepare you for those moments. I walked down the line and felt that clean cut of my brand new cleats slicing through their freshly mowed grass. I walked past a few of my teammates that were still playing catch and soaked in the sound of their gloves, popping like gun shots every four or 5 seconds. I laid down in that outfield and never wanted to move again. I thought back through all of my favorite moments the game of baseball had given me, up to that point, and didn’t want to get any closer to that finish line. That smell, those noises, and that feeling are things that I’ll never be able to get out of my head, and I’m both thankful and disappointed to have experienced them.

2015 CBD JOURNAL WITH RHODE ISLAND’S TIM CAPUTO (March 4th)

caputo_journalHello College Baseball Fans,

As the snow continued to fall and the temperatures remained below freezing in the Northeast, many programs were forced to surrender to mother nature and cancel last weekend’s games. Throughout the course of a season, you have to be ready to adapt at a moment’s notice when threatened by rain, snow, or a number of other circumstances. Continue reading 2015 CBD JOURNAL WITH RHODE ISLAND’S TIM CAPUTO (March 4th)

CBD JOURNAL WITH TEXAS A&M CORPUS CHRISTI’S JACOB DORRIS (Feb. 26th)

CBDThe Islanders started the 2015 campaign with a bang!

We swept St. Peters University in our opening weekend series at home. The team looked salty, as timely hitting and solid pitching performances were on display in all three games. Offensively, the Ders were led by junior third baseman Cody Clarke, who finished the weekend with an impressive 7-for-10 performance at the plate. In addition to Clarke, junior transfer and Corpus Christi native Justin Perales delivered clutch RBI after RBI, including a triple, to the delight of the hometown fans and family that came to see him in his first performance as an Islander. Redshirt freshman Travis Geiser also tripled in his first-ever collegiate at-bat, giving the Ders the lead late in game one of the series.

The returners are resuming their roles and the newcomers are finding their place of comfort within the lineup. The opening day excitement has passed, and it is now that each team’s true colors will begin to come out. Continue reading CBD JOURNAL WITH KENTUCKY WESLEYAN’S ADAM AKIN (Feb. 21st)

2015 CBD Journal with Campbell Baseball for Feb. 12th

As a starting point for my blogs this season, I would like to go into a day in the life of a student-athlete and more specifically, a Fighting Camel. Many people, fans of the game and family members and friends of those who play think they fully understand what it is like to be a college baseball player. I would never be one to pick and choose whether I thought certain people would be able to do it or not, but it is simply a difficult college lifestyle.

CBD JOURNAL WITH ARMY’S ALEX JENSEN (Feb. 11th)

cbd_journal_jensenThis is the first of my technical “in season” series of blog entries. It is surreal that we are actually departing for Spartanburg, South Carolina for our opening weekend games today. It seems like just yesterday we were practicing in September and the first game seemed like years away back then. Well, the time is finally here.

2015 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Tim Caputo (Feb. 11th)

caputo_journal“Good luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” – Darrell Royal
Hello College Baseball Fans,
Hallelujah! Baseball season is finally here! You would hardly know it, judging by the fact that I hardly remember what the grass and dirt even look like. Although it has snowed in record breaking proportions here this winter, it hasnʼt been a limiting factor for us. We are blessed with state-of-the-art indoor facilities that allow us to get to work each and every opportunity we get, in preparation for opening day.
