CBD Journal with Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Jacob Dorris (Nov. 7)

CBDThe warm, salty Gulf air of Corpus Christi is beginning to cool and the long, sunny days are getting shorter. There’s no more running poles in the 100-degree August heat, and no more grinding thru a seemingly endless revolving door of inter-squad scrimmages. The Blue-Gray Fall World Series is in the books and the Gray team has bragging rights for the next year. The Ders have spent the last four months preparing for the 2015 season, and now the lights of the Dirty Chap have dimmed. Fall practice is over. Continue reading

CBD Journal with Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Jacob Dorris

Most of my friends from home seem to think being a baseball player at Texas A&M Corpus Christi is a life full of beaches, bikinis and baseball. Well, not so much… So far this fall, it’s been a life full of books, barbells and bullpen sessions. The fall is a time to get bigger, stronger and faster; and that means 6:00 a.m. weightlifting groups, enough conditioning to make the cross country team look out of shape, and countless individual drills in the bullpen or batting cage. Add about 15 semester hours of classes into the mix and you will find that most of my teammates and I spend about 12 to 14 hours per day in the weight room, classroom and on the field. Although the workload is heavy, morale is extremely high and we’re all looking forward to getting on the field for the first official Islanders team practice. Continue reading

CBDAs I drove down Ocean Drive towards the TAMUCC campus, chocked full of anticipation for my senior season, I began to reflect upon my past three years as an Islander.  It amazes me how this baseball program has evolved and changed in my short tenure here.  I thought about all of my teammates that have come and gone through this program, and what being an Islander has meant to me.  I remembered how I felt on this day, three years ago as a freshman, meeting the coaching staff and upperclassmen.  I was both nervous and excited to begin my career as an Islander.  As I approached the Island Campus for my fourth year, my nerves and excitement had not faded in the least.
