From the Dugout with Tyler Watkins

Tyler Watkins
To get an inside look at what it is like to be a member of the 2011 Southeastern Louisiana University baseball team, ILB has asked senior RHP Tyler Watkins to write a weekly journal giving the Lion Nation a behind the scenes look at one of the top programs in the Southland Conference. To read all of Tyler's weekly journals you can click on his picture on the left menu.

Here is journal #7 for the 2011 season.

Well hello there Lion Nation! It’s the greatest time of the year to be a college baseball player. School is out and all we have to worry about is baseball. Needless to say everybody’s morale is up and we are all really excited about this free time we are finally getting. The weather here in Hammond, America has been fantastic and that has just added to the excitement of what’s to come. The last few weeks have gone pretty good for us and we are looking forward to the last series of the season before the post-season starts. Pretty much everything we wanted to accomplish at the beginning of the season is still right in front of us and if we continue to play good baseball there is no reason we shouldn’t reach those goals we set for ourselves.

Tomorrow morning we head up to Northwestern State for our final three game series of the regular season. Hopefully we can go up there and take care of business and sweep the Demons, who have plagued us the past couple of years. Last year they swept us to end the season and our hopes of capturing a 40 win regular season. With that being said we are eagerly awaiting this series and have some payback for them. That is about all we are focusing on right now even though the conference tournament is right around the corner.

Well Lion fans, that’s about all that’s been going on around here in Hammond, USA. We are all really eager to play this weekend and get the post-season started. I’ll be sure to check in and write a little more often since I have absolutely nothing to do now other than baseball and worry about trying to find a job after the season ends. Hopefully I’ll see the famous LION NATION at Northwestern State this weekend to cheer us on for our last weekend series and as we prepare for our quest to post-season greatness!

Until Next Time MANEiacs, LION UP and..
