Nothing like America’s Pastime in the Spring

Spring is right around the corner and that only means one thing: Stony Brook Baseball is back. It’s been around for 100 years and some of the pictures just look right.

The Baseball team takes the field at home for the first time on March 1st when they take on New York Institute of Technology, as Joe Nathan Field gets set to host another season of baseball.

They have lost two straight series, taking only one game of three against both Nicholls State and Louisiana-Lafayette. But they finished 20-3 at home last year, an incredible record.

This story would be fun because the star pitcher, sophomore Tyler Honahan, is a candidate for America East Pitcher of the Year. Seeing what it takes to get there during games and what he does that makes him a candidate for one of the highest honors in the conference.

Another nice story for the Seawolves is that this team has been one of the greatest in the conference for a long time, even making it to the national stage with their College World Series appearance in 2012. It would be interesting to capture what it takes to get to the highest stage in college baseball.

The one thing that is nice about Athletics is that we will have access to the players and manager Matt Senk to talk to them about their experiences.
