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. Continue reading

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.

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
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.

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
