2014 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Tim Caputo (April 22nd)

caputo_journalHello College Baseball Fans,

In the first two games of the series against George Mason this past weekend, our offense ceased to put up any runs and our bats were cold. In Sundayʼs game however, we scored seven runs on 14 hits – it seemed that our bats had risen from the dead. Our pitching staff has been battling all year and giving us a bunch of quality innings so it was nice to finally put some runs up for them to work with! Continue reading

Not only do we continue to hit in the barn, take ground balls on the turf, and tune our base running techniques, but we’ve incorporated a busy and demanding lift schedule into our weekly routine.
