Fall ball is the time when the new guys get to show their stuff and the veterans challenge these guys and introduce them to the lifestyle of being a college baseball player. It’s always fun to meet the new freshman and see which rookies will get the chance to make an immediate impact on and off the field. Continue reading

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
