Hopefully we'll be able to get in on some real baseball spring training, like the Twins. Real cheap for us too, we only have to pay $100 for the week. The school is paying for most of it.
You play college baseball? For which school? I don't remember you mentioning this - what's up with that?
St. Cloud Tech here in MN. We're part of the NJCAA. I believe it's JuCo DIII. I've played baseball all my life. When I was a sophomore in high school, I was getting letters from Clemson and the like. But that was the year I moved to an unknown town and a crappy baseball team So I lost a little bit of interest because of the level of play was so low. I went up to NDSU(D-I as of last year) in Fargo with the intent to play baseball up there, talked to the coaches and everything, they said I had a good chance to make the team. But I ended up not going through with it. Didn't go to the try out. Looking back on it I should have done it, but 2 years later I'm playing JuCo here at tech, don't know if I'll do anything after though. I may try out for some local semi-pro teams, but my dreams of being a major leaguer have seemed to diminish as I've gotten older. I can hit about 83-85 on the gun, and I'm sure if I put in a good workout regimen(I'm 6-2 and 170), I could make it to the minors, but I've chosen another road in life. I'm just playing for fun now. I have other stories of traveling the country for baseball too(Actually tried out with Prince Fielder down in AZ for the Junior Olympic under 16 team, I didn't make it though). All in all baseball's been good to me.
The girl's hockey team at my HS is playing you guys tonight.
