2014 CBD Journal with Tim Caputo (Rhode Island)

caputo_journalHello Everyone,

So fall ball is officially over. This doesn’t mean we hang up the spikes and bundle up for the cold winter months ahead, though. Not only do we continue to hit in the barn, take ground balls on the turf, and tune our base running techniques, but we’ve incorporated a busy and demanding lift schedule into our weekly routine.

2014 CBD Journal with Tim Caputo (Rhode Island)

caputo_journalHello everyone. To start out I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Tim Caputo and I’m a junior here at the University of Rhode Island. I am studying Kinesiology, majoring in Exercise Science and I play infield for the Rhody Rams baseball team.

It’s about that time of year again to dust the dirt off of our spikes from summer ball and lace them up for another full season of hard work. 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

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 (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 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 (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
