It's hard to have anything but basketball on the brain right now. But Believe it or not the Binghamton baseball team is almost a third of the way through their season. This weekend they head to Stonybrook, New York for a set against their America East Rivals.
Not only are The Stony Brook Seawolves the defending conference champs, they stunned the college baseball world last year when they punched their ticket to Omaha for the College World Series. But they're not the same team they were last year. And as Head Coach Tim Sinicki told me, The Bearcats, who placed third last year in the America East, well they aren't the same team either. And so far this season, they've shown it.
Shannon asks, "Coach you're nine and six but I don't really think that accurately reflects how good you're doing right now just because you're leading in on base percentage, batting average, so what's working for you guys right now?"
Coach Sinicki says, "Yeah I think we're doing a good job in most areas. We've pitched well at times, we've hit well at times. We're defending at a pretty good clip right now. I'm happy with the way we're running the bases. What I'd like to see out of us right now if kind of playing more complete games. I think we've played some ball games where we've had 2 things going or we're just lacking the total effort. And that's what you need in conference games which we have coming up. We'll need to play good games. Complete games if we want to compete with them and try to win the series."
The series begins at Stony Brook with a doubleheader on Saturday. First pitch slated for noon.
