Post-Exam Baseball


Well, the season is winding down and we have two ACC weekends and a midweek game left. Exams are finally over and now it’s time to just play baseball and not worry about class.


This semester I had an internship with an Associate Athletic Director of Marketing and Ticket sales for NC State.  It was a ten-week internship where I did little projects, assisted game day operations for basketball games, put together promotions for the baseball team, and made a marketing plan for a Men's Golf team.

With that aside and over with, it’s back to the diamond. After taking one game from Virginia, we took two from Maryland, then had a tough weekend vs. East Tennessee State University and dropped two games. We bounced back this week and took care of business in our last away midweek game vs. Campbell with a 10-2 victory.

Huge series this weekend in Raleigh. We host the Florida State Seminoles who are looking to host a regional. We are looking to take this series to add to our resume for a regional bid and an ACC berth. We are playing well and only have one focus now without classes and this is to take one game at a time and win.


Now that classes are over, we have a lot of free time. Some guys like to go and play a round of golf on our off day. Many of us are addicted to PS3. Some of the games are: Call of Duty, MLB the Show, NHL 11, and Tiger Woods 11 the Masters.


We don't have many team meetings but we are going to start to have team meals.


Guys are still lifting and staying in the routine they have had all season. Some of the guys are really enjoying sleeping in a little bit as opposed to waking up for class at 8 am.


American Idol is a show a bunch of us watch and for Saturday’s game, Scotty is throwing out the first pitch so that should be pretty cool.


Till next time...
