Spring Break at the Speedway


After coming off a weekend sweep of the Richmond Spiders, we packed our bags for spring break. We boarded a bus destined for Delaware, Maryland, and Washington D.C., not some exotic place like most of our friends did, as we embarked on an eight-game trip to play Delaware State, Towson and George Washington. There is nothing better than being on spring break with your teammates, playing baseball and traveling up and down the East Coast. We played well at Delaware State to earn a second straight weekend sweep, bringing our winning streak to six games.


While we were in Delaware, a couple of us got to get onto the Dover International Speedway. The Speedway, which holds about 250,000 people, was right down the street from our hotel. So one night before going out for dinner, we went to explore the sights that most have us had never seen before. Seeing numerous Major League stadiums before, we had never seen anything like this arena. 


Being able to navigate around the Speedway was one of the coolest things we have ever done. Even though we are not on some beach enjoying a normal college student’s spring break, being on the road playing baseball and doing things like this is something that many people never get the chance to experience.  


After leaving Delaware we arrived in Towson, Md., for a brief two-game mid-week series with the Tigers.  After Towson, we will head to the nation’s capital to take on George Washington for a three-game set to conclude the spring break trip.
