Regionals here we come!
The postseason is an exciting time of the year because everyone starts fresh. The regular seasons are erased and it is down to business from here on out. All teams that barely scooted by are ready to prove why they are worthy of being in the final 64. Every team is equal at this point and every team is in for the same reasons.
As for us, we are excited to see what we can do. You cannot make predictions because postseasons are unpredictable, but I am curious to see where we end up. I am looking to go a little farther this year than the last two years. We have the team and coaching staff to do it. We have Kent St. for our first game and it will not be an easy game. They have some great talent both on the mound and in the batters box and we cannot look past them one bit. Our second game will be either against Cal Poly or Oral Roberts. It would be nice to play against Oral Roberts because I played for Coach Walton this summer with Team USA. It will be nice to see him either way.
We feel good coming into this postseason with some experience under our belts. It will be nice to have Spence back in the rotation or in relief, however we decide to use him. We are healthy with little or no injuries and eager to get started Friday. It will be nice to play in front of our home fans as well considering we have the best attendance on the West Coast. Perhaps being my last college postseason, I will cherish every second.
We have a tough Regional to get through before we can start thinking about the next step, but we will fight every pitch and every out until the last catch is made.
Thank you for your time!
