OK, I don't really think Skinner will be coming back, but looks like the Kennesaw State AD who hired Skinner is returning to BC, where he spent time in the athletic department during the Skinner era. Adding a D1 AD to the department looks like a solid hire for Jarmond.
The 3rd Annual CACC will be held on July 14 and will benefit Compassionate Care ALS and the Travis Roy Foundation.
But who is it? Could it be Alabama? A West Coast Opponent? Someone no one is expecting? Martin Jarmond's 1st future scheduling announcement is coming! Arghhhh the anticipation is killing me! Leave your predictions below!
Former Birdballer Chris Shaw, the San Francisco Giants' first round selection in 2015, is steadily inching his way toward the the big leagues. Shaw started the 2017 season in Double-A Richmond, but after crushing the pitching in the Eastern League during the first few months of the season, he was promoted to Triple-A Sacramento, just a phone call away from the majors. He's also moved primarily to the outfield, something that bodes well for his eventual call-up, which could come sooner rather than later, as the Giants have a glaring hole in left field. You can read more on Shaw's early career in the minors here.
As we mentioned over the weekend, Pete Frates is headed to the Hall of Fame. The glove the former captain used to patrol centerfield for the Eagles, along with the bucket used in the original Ice Bucket Challenge at Fenway Park, are making their way to Cooperstown, New York to be housed for generations to come, commemorating the amazing impact that Pete had not only in the field of ALS research, but also on the world of baseball in general. The Ice Bucket Challenge raised over $115 million worldwide, money that had a direct impact on recent breakthroughs in curing this horrible disease.
Chad Ricardo goes in depth with 2018 running back David Bailey on his choices and why he went with BC.
Congratulations are in order for junior outfielder/pitcher Donovan Casey and sophomore utility-player Jake Alu who were named the the NEIBA All-New England Second and Third Team, respectively. Casey starred at the plate and on the mound for the Eagles this season, batting .286 with two homeruns and 20 RBI, while starting all 53 games for BC. He also held a 2.84 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 23 appearances on the bump this spring. Alu broke into the lineup early in the season and never looked back, batting a team-leading .331 in 48 games played. Astoundingly enough, his average actually went up during ACC play to .342, which is widely considered the toughest conference in the nation. The All-New England teams are voted on by the coaches.
