After going to Virginia for a long weekend the Western Connecticut State University baseball team is heading Florida for spring break. But it isn’t about having a good time — they have some business they have to take care of.
In their long weekend in Virginia, they went 2-1 playing Marymount college in all three games. Now with some high confidence, they are heading to Fort Myers, Florida for nine straight games from Saturday, March 19 to Thursday, March 24.
They will be playing three doubleheaders. The teams they will be playing Mount Saint Mary’s (New York), Amherst, St. Lawrence, Lasell, Saint John’s (Minnesota), Millikin, Wis.-Platteville, and Wooster.
Last year, Western went to Fort Pierce, Florida and they had a record of 5-4. Western is hoping they would do better than what they did last year.
In one of the games in Virginia, Craig Frobel threw a no-hitter. Frobel only walked one person which made him one walk close to a perfect game. Western is hoping to continue with more wins down in Florida or more no-hitters.
What will the baseball team enjoy the most? Well, it has to be the Florida sun obviously. So they are hoping to take care of business and enjoy the beautiful weather. Good luck to them!
