As we enter the 2009 Eagles Baseball Season it is with thoughts of pride, working hard and character. It is these thoughts along with the willingness to possess and exhibit these qualities that will be paramount in order for us to achieve our goals and be successful on and off the baseball diamond. These thoughts are the result of the quality and diverse group of student athletes that we have in the program in 2009; freshmen through seniors. We are hopeful that the quality and diversity in the program will lead to many opportunities for our student-athletes.
It is the goal each season to produce young men and players in which
you the fan can be proud of and support on the field as well as off.
We plan for this season to be no different. Our goal is to have young
men leave the program better baseball players as well as quality
individuals that possess and present the character and qualities
necessary for future success and happiness.
