CBD Journal with Ray Ricker (Post University/Mystic Schooners)

Hello everyone. Welcome back to my blog. After a couple of days off from Post Baseball it was that time again, time to get back on the bus. I am entering my 3rd year in the New England Collegiate League which is widely regarded as one of the top 3 summer leagues in the country. This is my second season as Manager in the league. I really enjoy the opportunity to coach and teach some of the best players in the country. Watching the Major League Baseball Draft gets a lot more interesting not only because of the players that I have coached getting selected in the draft but also seeing what players might not be coming to your summer club. While at Post during the season I am calling and receiving emails from coaches all over the country and have the chance to select my team for the summer. This summer I am the Manager for the Mystic Schooners, my first question was what in the world is a schooner? It is a boat, I’ll save everyone the google search. Continue reading
