Season 2, Entry 4 - April 15, 2015

Consistency is the name of the game. In a typical college baseball season, there are around 56 games over the course of four months. In the great game of baseball, where perfection is virtually impossible, the one defining characteristic of a good player, as well as a good team, is consistency. Highs and lows will come, but being consistent creates a standard to hold yourself to each and every day. Easier said than done, being consistent means being mentally and physically focused on the task at hand, and dominating the aspects of the game that you can control. [READ MORE].

Season 2, Entry 3 - March 4, 2015

As the snow continued to fall and the temperatures remained below freezing in the Northeast, many programs were forced to surrender to mother nature and cancel last weekend’s games. Throughout the course of a season, you have to be ready to adapt at a moment’s notice when threatened by rain, snow, or a number of other circumstances. This past weekend wasn’t the typical three-day, three-game series that we are used to because we played a doubleheader Friday and finished off the series Saturday night – rather, early Sunday morning – under the lights. Eager to get our season rolling and due to weather conditions, we moved the series a few hours south of Chapel Hill, to Florence South Carolina, where we took on the #11 Tar Heels at Sparrow Stadium, home of the Francis Marion Patriots.

Season 2, Entry 2 - February 11, 2015

This is the point of the season where it all pays off. Our coaching staff has demanded a higher standard of work ethic and determination and weʼve put in the work to achieve success. The 6 AM lifts, the never ending sled pushes, and the gut-wrenching sprints that have pushed us to new limits will all be worth it come Friday night under the lights. The energy and excitement surrounding this season is electric! I have never been more motivated and excited at the start of a season than this year. My teammates, our coaching staff, and I could not be more eager to pack our bags and hit the road Thursday morning for our season opener down in Gainesville.  [READ MORE]

Season 2, Entry 1 - October 14, 2014

Welcome back for another year of college baseball! Although baseball season may be winding down with the NL and AL division series underway, for the Rhody Rams, the season has just begun. This year we have a brand new coaching staff and a young, energetic freshman class eager to contribute to the team. Raphael Cerrato was named head coach just this past summer, after serving the previous three years as assistant coach here at the University of Rhode Island. Coach Cerrato is an excellent leader and his drive to win and joy for the game radiates directly onto my teammates and me. He would call me over the summer and we'd talk about this upcoming year and I think he may have been more excited than I was to get back to school. It just goes to show how badly he wants to win.  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 6 - April 22, 2014

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Sunday! Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, and ironically our team experienced something quite similar this past Sunday. In the first two games of the series against George Mason this past weekend, our offense ceased to put up any runs and our bats were cold. In Sundayʼs game however, we scored seven runs on 14 hits – it seemed that our bats had risen from the dead. Our pitching staff has been battling all year and giving us a bunch of quality innings so it was nice to finally put some runs up for them to work with!  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 5 - March 14, 2014

We opened our Spring trip this year down in Charleston, SC. Personally, this weekend brought back some great memories, as I got my first college start at the College of Charleston. My freshman year we played in a tournament at the College of Charleston and unfortunately our starting short stop and my mentor, Mike Le Bel tore his rotator cuff, which opened up the opportunity for me to play. Ironically, coming back to "C of C" this year, I had to sit this series out due to an injury and freshman infielder, RJ Warnock filled the hole with an excellent display of defense throughout the weekend.  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 4 - February 22, 2014

Looking out my window to see snow piling up on the ground isn’t exactly what I picture when I think of baseball season. However, it’s that time of year again and we couldn’t be happier about it!  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 3 - January 22, 2014

To start off, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year! The new year will be a great start for our program as the journey to conquer the Atlantic 10 begins. As our guys return to campus, we begin to polish our skills as we only have a few weeks until the first pitch is thrown in Fort Myers, Florida.  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 2 - November 7, 2013

So fall ball is officially over. This doesn't mean we hang up the spikes and bundle up for the cold winter months ahead, though. Not only do we continue to hit in the barn, take ground balls on the turf, and tune our base running techniques, but we've incorporated a busy and demanding lift schedule into our weekly routine.  [READ MORE]

Season 1, Entry 1 - September 25, 2013
