CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (April 26th)

lebel_journalsHello Everyone,

I would like to start out by saying that, on behalf of the Rhody Baseball team, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the Boston Marathon bombings, as well as the explosion that recently occurred in Texas.

2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (April 8th)

lebel_journalsHello Everyone,

Sunday. It’s the most important day of the week. Unfortunately, in our conference-opening weekend last week, we were not able to execute on Sunday. That Dayton series was tough on us as a team as we didn’t play how we expected to and the results reflected that. The beauty of baseball however, at least most of the time, is that there is always another game right around the corner. Continue reading 2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (April 8th)

2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (March 21st)

lebel_journalsHello Everyone,

Pitching, defense, and timely hitting. Those three aspects of the game of baseball are what lead the Rhody Rams to a three-game sweep of Winthrop this past weekend. I really can’t express to the readers how proud I am of our team for the way we battled this weekend. There is no doubt that we did not start the season the way we had planned, but this group of guys refuses to give up. Day after day, we keep plugging away and continue to try to improve the way we play baseball. Continue reading 2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (March 21st)

2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (March 11th)

lebel_journalsHello Everyone,

Rhody Baseball is on the road again. We are currently traveling in a van, captained by Sports Information Director Jodi Pontbriand, on our way to Johnson City, TN for a two-game set against East Tennessee State. Jodi has been working at URI for seven years now and is a true professional at what she does. She’s also responsible for setting me up with this blog on CBD, and for that I would like thank her.

About half of the guys riding in our van right now are seniors. Throughout the rest of this post, I am going to do a little Q&A with each of them to give readers a better sense of what these guys are like… Continue reading 2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (March 11th)

2013 CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (Feb. 22nd)

lebel_journalsHello Everyone,

Well, last weekend did not go as planned for the Rhody Rams as we were swept in Tallahassee by #9 Florida State. That being said, we once again have a chance to prove we can hang with big time programs as we head to #8 Ole Miss for a weekend series and then travel to #5 Mississippi State for two mid-week games.

CBD Journal with Mike Le Bel (Rhode Island)

lebel_journalsHello All,

This last week has been pretty trying for the Rhode Island baseball team as temperatures outside have topped out around 20 degrees, accompanied by three inches of snow and only more to come. Let me tell you this: There is nothing glamorous about attempting to field ground balls on the “rich mahogany” of East Gym. Continue reading CBD Journal with Mike Le Bel (Rhode Island)

CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (November 8th)

Well, fall ball is done. Us upper classmen have spent the past couple months tweaking some things and just working to get better each and every single day. Our freshmen, meanwhile, used the fall as an opportunity to prove themselves deserving of a plane ticket to Tallahassee for the season-opening series at Florida State.

CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (October 3rd)

Well here we are again, the beginning of another school year. Before you know it, February will roll around and, on Friday night, the lights will get turned on and the 2013 college baseball season will begin. But before that happens, there will be plenty of blood, sweat and tears leading up to the moment we all work so hard for: opening night.
