everyone. I’m glad to finally get this season started, as most of you are.
been a month of team practices, inter-squads, workouts and sporadic weather. We
have had days of 60 and 30 degrees here in Raleigh, N.C., and hopefully the 70s
will be rolling in quick.
month of January went by real quick and now only two days until opening day.
open up against Elon, and there is a little twist this opening weekend because
we play home Friday and Sunday and at Elon on Saturday. The projected
temperature for Friday is a high of 77!!!
the whole country is looking forward to the 18th. This week we will use our
practices to make sure there will be no confusion during game situations, and we
are all on the same page from signs to plays.
past weekend we had long inter-squad games so our pitchers could fine-tune their
pitches, and hitters could see live arms before facing other opponents.
the upcoming 2011 season we are looking to bounce back from a poor showing at a
Regional and making another run to the ACC Championship game and bring the title
to Raleigh. We bring back a bunch of guys from the 2010 season who are older and
have improved their game with good summer performances.
coaches have put together a tough schedule right off the bat with Elon the first
weekend and the Coastal Carolina tournament featuring Cal, Pacific and Coastal
the following weekend.
team is excited and cannot wait for Friday to come quick enough. I know I’m real
eager to get out and play. To the people in Raleigh who are reading this, we’ll
see you at Doak Field at Dail Park on Friday.
