2015 CBD JOURNAL WITH CAMPBELL BASEBALL FOR JUNE 16TH

College baseball fans,
I know I have been away for a while but I am back! First and foremost, what a NCAA tournament and College World Series it has been thus far! It’s hard to argue that baseball is the most exciting and suspenseful sport there is. When thinking about crazy baseball plays, games, or moments, there is one saying that I have heard many times that sums up the best way to look at it: “Gotta love it!” How could you not love it? I must admit my biased ways though being that I have played this sport my entire life. Even those who haven’t always played and who are just spectators watching this sport like every other must feel some sort of rush of brilliance while watching.

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.
