It’s been a while since I last posted here…I’ve been unbelievably busy ever since! The baseball team traveled everywhere in New York to play baseball games, from Houghton College (near Letchworth State Park) to Clarkson University (all the way up near Canada) and back. We’ve been playing serious baseball, and we’ve been doing really well! Our start to this season was officially the greatest start ever in program history! I’m really proud of my teammates who constantly stepped up when we needed them, our support for each other, and how we always maintained our mantra, “Relentless,” showing no quit in us.
Not only that, there were tons of assignments that had to be done during the week (had to do homework for the week in advance oftentimes), so I wouldn’t be surprised if I looked in the mirror and found a gray hair or two. It’s a lot of work. I’ll admit that. But it’s absolutely worth it.
This past weekend was the Senior weekend celebrating the six seniors’ careers here at RIT. My teammates and I were honored with awards, old jerseys and an embarrassing PowerPoint that our parents composed consisting of ridiculous baby pictures. This weekend went by like an absolute blur. We lost the first game of the weekend against Union College, and then rallied to beat them near the end of the second game (relentless)! After that, we had a Senior Banquet where the seniors were honored and then we honored our wonderful coaching staff with bats and gift cards. We had a wonderful dinner, and enjoyed each others company. Seeing all the love and support our families, friends, and teammates gave each other really gave us the strength to push forward. We ended up sweeping Union the next day, and with those two wins, we were propelled up to first place in the Liberty League standings! It was a wonderful weekend.
We have one more week of baseball left–a couple mid-week games and then a big weekend series against RPI. Then after that the playoff race will tighten even more (the top four will advance)…and I have a couple of papers to write that weekend. It’s all part of it. Looking forward to seeing what happens! Until then, hope you all take care!
