What's good?? More importantly, what happened to Spring? It seemed like a few days ago I was wearing shorts and my boat shoes and now I'm sporting the Guilford Baseball hoodie, and I'm still cold when I go outside! Thankfully it is supposed to warm up a little bit tomorrow (high of 57 degrees) for the game against Greensboro. We beat Greensboro College in a thriller earlier in the year, but since then they have went on a tear and it should be another classic battle. Adding even more flavor, the game is being played at NewBridge Bank Park aka Grasshopper Stadium. I'm getting hyped just thinking about it and ready to get this W so we can get some more momentum going into another big ODAC weekend at home against Virginia Wesleyan. Tomorrow's game starts at 6:00pm and I encourage everyone and anyone to come because if nothing else it is a good chance to yell across the field at some Greensboro College kids.

More About Ben
I'm not going to lie, after the first couple months of school, I was still on the fence about Ben. I wasn't quite sure what to think of the dude. He was so laid back on the field and off the field, I wasn't even sure if I could take him seriously. That all changed when I realized how hard of a worker he was. I would guess that he has put on at least 15 lbs of pure muscle since he has been at school and he hasn't disappointed on the field either. During a developmental game earlier this year, Ben was tracking down a foul ball and literally smashed his entire face on the fence. Honestly, I have no idea how hurt he was or what was broken because he doesn't ever talk about it and didn't let the pain get to him at all. In fact, he plugged his nose up with tissue and kept playing. Ben definitely comes off as a goofball and always has me cracking up at his brutally honest comments and gestures, he is also a great ballplayer who has a bright future.
Peace and Love,
