War Eagle Checks In


Dear Readers,

This season sure has flown by.

It feels like just yesterday we were playing at home against Southeast Missouri. But a few months later, we are now sitting at the SEC Tournament for the first time in years.

Also, we can claim stake to the SEC Western Division regular season title! For us guys on the team, it still hasn't set in.

I think it will take many years before we realize how big that accomplishment really is. We are now on the third day of the tournament and sitting at 40 wins for the season. It has been a fun ride, and I hope it doesn't end before July.

As for my individual performances, I have had an up and down season. I had two bumps in the road against Alabama and South Carolina, and then it seems that everything really smoothed out after that.

I pitched once again against Alabama to open the SEC Tournament, which was a great experience. We set a Session One attendance record with over 12,000 fans, and that place was rocking!

I am now preparing for the postseason, and hopefully we won't have to start summer workouts for a long time.

We are hopefully hosting a regional for the first round of the postseason. I believe our resume is strong enough, and if we do well enough in the SEC Tournament, we could even possibly earn a National Seed. Here is to the baseball gods, hopeful that they will throw things our way for the next couple of days.

Thanks for reading, and WAR EAGLE!!!
