WE ARE REALLY EXCITED YOU KNOW WE HAVE, UHH
A BUNCH OF YOUNG GUYS. THEY CAME IN AND MADE AN IMPACT EARLY ON,
AND WE HAVE FIVE GUYS RETURNING. A SENIOR CLASS SO WE ARE REALLY EXCITED AND
WE’VE BEEN EXCITED FOR AWHILE. WE ARE EXCITED TO GET OUT AND SEE SOME NEW
FACES AND FACE THE COMPETITION. YOU KNOW WE HAVE A LOT OF GUYS, AND A LOT
OF EXPERIENCE. UHH, YOUNGER GUYS TOO THAT PLAYED ALOT FOR
US LAST YEAR AND WE GOT A LOT OF TIME AND A LOT OF AT BATS, GOING IN TO THE SEASON EVERY
YEAR HOPING WE CAN MAKE A CENTENNIAL CONFERENCE RUN. ITS BEEN GREAT SO FAR. YOU KNOW EVERYONE WORKS REALLY HARD IN THE
OFF SEASON BUYING IN REALLY JUST EVERY PITCH YOU’VE GOT TO BE FOCUSED. YOU’VE JUST GOT TO COME READY TO WIN. YOU’VE GOT TO JUST PUSH YOURSELF, PUSH YOUR
TEAMMATES. BE A BETTER PERSON IN SOCIETY, BE A BETTER
PERSON IN THE CLASSROOM ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO DO JUST TO WEAR THE DICKINSON NAME
PROUD AND REPRESENT THE BASEBALL PROGRAM. I THINK YOU’VE JUST GOT TO GRIND, UHM YOU
KNOW AND IN THE PAST WE HAVE SEEN ALOT OF TEAMS THAT MAKE IT TO THAT TOP FOUR PLAYOFFS=–
THEY JUST PUT IN THE WORK, THEY BUY IN AND THEY GRIND WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT. THERES NOTHING REALLY BETTER THAN GETTING
DOWN ON THE FIELD ESPECIALLY, WHEN ITS WARM OUTSIDE UHM ITS A GOOD SPOT TO JUST COME AND
HANGOUT IF YOUR WATCHING THE GAME AND ITS BEEN MY HOME FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS AND ITS
HONESTLY AN HONOR TO JUST BE ABLE TO PLAY DOWN THERE AND WORK WITH THE GUYS DOWN THERE. THIS JOURNEYS SOMETHING THAT I WOULDN’T GIVE
ANYTHING ELSE FOR, THE PAST FOUR YEARS THAT I HAVE BEEN HERE. EVERY SINGLE YEAR FAMILIES ARE TIGHT THEY
MAKE THE TRIP TO FLORIDA AND THIS YEAR CALIFORNIA. AND I MEAN ITS REALLY JUST REALLY SPECIAL
AND I THINK IT COMES WITH WEARING THIS JERSEY AND WEARING THE DICKINSON D ACROSS YOUR CHEST. YOU KNOW YOU ARE NOT JUST HERE FOR A GREAT
EDUCATION YOU GET TO PLAY GREAT BASEBALL AND YOU GET TO BUILD A FAMILY AND FRIENDS HERE MY HIGH SCHOOL COACH PLAYED BASEBALL AND SOCCER
HERE AT DICKINSON AND REALLY PUSHED ON ME, YOU KNOW GO VISIT DICKINSON AND TRY IT OUT–
LOOK AT IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW I WANTED A SMALLER SCHOOL AND I CAME AND VISITED WITH COACH HANSEN. AND I JUST LOVED IT, I MET COACH KRAMER WHEN
HE WAS A SENIOR I SAW HIS SENIOR DAY. TO SEE PEOPLE EXCEL AND HOW HAPPY EVERYONE
WAS TO BE TOGETHER, IT JUST FELT LIKE A FAMILY AND THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT I WANTED TO DO
AND HAVE A PART OF MY COLLEGE EXPERIENCE. I THINK ITS MADE ME A MORE WELL ROUNDED PERSON
UHM, BECAUSE I GET TO EXPERIENCE BOTH SIDES OF BEING A STUDENT HERE. WHEN YOU PUT ON THE DICKINSON RED YOU REPRESENT
THE SCHOOL AND THATS, THATS SOMETHING THAT NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN SAY THEY’VE BEEN ABLE
TO DO. TO UH, REPRESENT A SCHOOL ALSO YOU REPRESENT
YOUR TEAMMATES UHM, AND THEN FINALLY OBVIOUSLY THERES NO NAMES ON THE BACK OF OUR JERSEYS
BUT WITH THE OUTPOURING FAMILY SUPPORT UHH, YOU REPRESENT YOUR HOMETOWN AND YOUR FAMILY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US, JUST THANK
YOU. UHM, YOU KNOW I CAN’T SAY THAT ENOUGH THANK
YOU FOR COMING OUT TO THE GAMES. SHOWING YOUR SUPPORT ON THE FIELD AND IN THE
CLASSROOM WHEN WE WALK AROUND CAMPUS. BUT ALSO TO THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T REALLY
KNOW, YOU KNOW –COME OUT SEE WHAT ITS LIKE. WHETHER ITS BASEBALL, LACROSSE, BASKETBALL
SOCCER, SOFTBALL. WHATEVER IT MAY BE JUST COME OUT EXPERIENCE
IT ONCE, AND YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT AND WANT TO COME TO A LOT MORE GAMES. A LOT GOES INTO IT, AND ITS BEEN GREAT WITH
DICKINSON AND MY TEAMMATES BECAUSE YOU HAVE A LOT OF GUYS THAT WANT TO DO IT WITH YOU
AND YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE PUSHING YOU, AND REALLY PUSHING YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL WHO WANT
YOU TO SUCCEED.
