After a circuitous 12 hour trip, that included a 45 minute plane ride, CUA baseball arrived in Myrtle Beach at the Ripken Experience baseball facility. First, the three FieldTurf fields are modeled after classic ballparks of yesteryear including the Polo Grounds and Washington's Griffith Park. Due to conditions back home, we had not had a full practice onfield in over two weeks, so taking batting practice and infield/outfield as an entire team was fun. We have a small army, 45 guys, so a normal practice takes much longer than in years past. With the lights on, we had a good practice and are ready for the Rochester Institute of Technology, a team that won over 20 games last season.
