CBD Journal with Rhode Island’s Mike Le Bel (November 8th)

Well, fall ball is done. Us upper classmen have spent the past couple months tweaking some things and just working to get better each and every single day. Our freshmen, meanwhile, used the fall as an opportunity to prove themselves deserving of a plane ticket to Tallahassee for the season-opening series at Florida State. Continue reading

2012 CBD Journal with URI’s Mike Le Bel (March 30th)

Hi Everyone,

I don’t think its a coincidence that the Rams put 5 runs on the board this past Friday against Charlotte. A week ago today, our first home game, we held a special ceremony at Bill Beck Field retiring number 5 in honor of our teammate Joey Ciancola. His mom, Michele, and sister, Lindsay, along with several other members of Joey’s family and friends came out onto the field in honor of number 5. Continue reading

Moscot & Grandpre congratulate. Teammates celebrate.MALIBU, Calif. — Jon Moscot was in control the whole way. The right-handed junior pitched a complete game gem for Pepperdine and the Waves (9-4) took the series opener 2-1 against Rhode Island Friday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium.

Moscot mowed through the URI (4-6) lineup with nine strikeouts. He allowed only one unearned run on five hits and one walk. The 6-foot-4, 200 pounder said his ability to get his breaking ball over for a strike enabled him to mix his pitches better and keep Rhode Island’s hitters off balance. Continue reading
