Soccer has and always will be a major passion of mine; it is one of the many reasons I chose to come to Cabrini College.
I had the fortune of being recruited by Coach Dallas and I have enjoyed every minute of playing soccer here. This current spring I have the privilege of playing Tennis for Cabrini as well and so far I am happy to be a part of the team. I can thank my roommate Michael Halbherr for encouraging me to try out.
While I love playing soccer, my real passion in sports is Baseball and finding out that Cabrini College will be fielding a varsity baseball team is exciting. While I would love to try out for the team I most likely will not have the time because I will be student teaching next spring.
Baseball, in my opinion, epitomizes American culture.
Earl Weaver once said, “In baseball, you can’t kill the clock. You’ve got to give the other man his chance. That’s why this is the greatest game.
I resonate with this because in baseball you cannot get cheated, yes the umpires may make mistakes, but for the most part the hitter, fielder or pitcher, controls their own destiny.
Now that baseball is entering Cabrini College, I feel it will give this soon-to-be university a chance to embrace America’s pastime.
Baseball is romantic. We have heroes, we have villains but most of all, a bond forms among young men striving towards a common goal.
