Today started off like most days here, with us in the weight room. I love getting up relatively early and getting a great workout in and still having all afternoon to do whatever I need to do. My suite mates are helping me immensely. I've put on about 6 pounds in the past 4 weeks or so. My goal is to gain a pound a week, and it's going very well. I'm on a better diet and I'm focusing on getting stronger every day. It's coming through on the mound as well, as I feel a bit more behind the baseball when I throw.
Our team played one of the better teams in the league today, and ended up losing 5-1. Our pitcher threw pretty well, but a couple home runs made the difference. With kids from UNC and big name schools, we have to keep the ball down in small ballparks such as the one we played at tonight.
I start this upcoming Saturday, so I'll begin to look at rosters, stats, and such to break down how I want to attack this team. I have a lot of confidence right now, so that should come through and help me throw a solid outing. For now, I'm off to half-price appetizers at Applebee's for a late dinner, should be delicious.
