After two long weeks of double days and a full week of class and practices this week, we are ready for Game 1. In the last 3 weeks we have welcomed 11 new players, participated in many challenging practices, played a whole bunch of intrasquad innings, but most importantly we have come together as one.
We feel like we are extremely prepared to meet the challenge that the long college season presents. Our players have met our expectations in practice everyday we have shown up at the field, and that is all you can ask for as a coaching staff. They are feeling the confidence that comes from preparing for greatness at all times. That confidence will carry over to the field and will guide us through the ups and downs of the season.
The first series begins on Friday, February 4th at Sonoma State. It will be an exciting time as the New Brand of MB Baseball takes the field. The series will provide some interesting emotions, as 4 of our 5 coaches are SSU alumni. The next blog post will feature of brief preview of the opening series.
