CBD Journal with Kentucky Wesleyan’s Adam Akin (March 21)

Asst_Coach_Adam_AkinThrough my experience, coaches are almost always the most competitive people in the world. We are the ones that would have trouble making it through life without something to strive for, something to learn, and something to give us a sense of purpose. Competition is what feeds us and what gives us that edge. As I have recently learned, it is this competitiveness that is both my biggest strength and my biggest weakness.

CBD JOURNAL WITH KENTUCKY WESLEYAN’S ADAM AKIN (March 8th)

Asst_Coach_Adam_AkinIt was a February afternoon in the “spring” of 2010 when I first felt baseball’s ultimate wrath. We were at West Georgia, minutes from the start of the final season opener of my baseball playing career. It was a day I had been both looking forward to and dreading for quite a long time, but there’s nothing in life that can prepare you for those moments.

Maryland’s Mike Montville transferring to Southern New Hampshire

MichaelMontvilleMaryland outfielder Mike Montville will transfer to Southern New Hampshire at the end of the season according to Mike Zhe of Fosters.com. Montville will be entering his redshirt senior season in the fall of 2014 after suffering an elbow injury during the 2013 season which allowed he to get a medical redshirt.

Montville states in the article from Fosters.com that he is transferring due to the fact that the Terps are heading into the Big Ten next season and the Maryland style brought in by second year head coach John Szefc which focuses on bunting doesn’t fit his style well.
