We swept St. Peters University in our opening weekend series at home. The team looked salty, as timely hitting and solid pitching performances were on display in all three games. Offensively, the Ders were led by junior third baseman Cody Clarke, who finished the weekend with an impressive 7-for-10 performance at the plate. In addition to Clarke, junior transfer and Corpus Christi native Justin Perales delivered clutch RBI after RBI, including a triple, to the delight of the hometown fans and family that came to see him in his first performance as an Islander. Redshirt freshman Travis Geiser also tripled in his first-ever collegiate at-bat, giving the Ders the lead late in game one of the series.

As important as the fall and summer off-seasons are in building a successful college baseball team, there is no doubt in my mind that championships are won and lost during the Christmas break. The character of every team around the country will face its greatest test in the next 40 to 50 days. College baseball may be the only NCAA Division I sport in which coaches send their athletes back home, with zero supervision for over a month, right before the beginning of the season. Players can work hard themselves all summer, collectively work hard as a team all fall and waste it all over Christmas break. The coaches aren’t checking attendance in the weight room and your teammates aren’t there to hold you accountable. If an individual player doesn’t take it upon himself to continue working hard every day over the break, all the sweat, all the cuts in the cage, all the long-tossing and all the conditioning they’ve done throughout the entire off-season may be wasted. It’s all about routine and self-discipline. It’s not “Christmas Break,“ it’s more like “Christmas Make-or-Break.” Continue reading CBD Journal with Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Jacob Dorris (December 19th)

The warm, salty Gulf air of Corpus Christi is beginning to cool and the long, sunny days are getting shorter. There’s no more running poles in the 100-degree August heat, and no more grinding thru a seemingly endless revolving door of inter-squad scrimmages. The Blue-Gray Fall World Series is in the books and the Gray team has bragging rights for the next year. The Ders have spent the last four months preparing for the 2015 season, and now the lights of the Dirty Chap have dimmed. Fall practice is over.

As I drove down Ocean Drive towards the TAMUCC campus, chocked full of anticipation for my senior season, I began to reflect upon my past three years as an Islander. It amazes me how this baseball program has evolved and changed in my short tenure here. I thought about all of my teammates that have come and gone through this program, and what being an Islander has meant to me. I remembered how I felt on this day, three years ago as a freshman, meeting the coaching staff and upperclassmen. I was both nervous and excited to begin my career as an Islander. As I approached the Island Campus for my fourth year, my nerves and excitement had not faded in the least. Continue reading CBD Journal with Texas A&M Corpus Christi’s Jacob Dorris
