While many college students will spend spring break on the couch watching Net ix, the Roanoke baseball team is heading to the Cal Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They will play four games in four days in what some consider baseball heaven. This will set them up for their rst league games when they return from break.

Five seniors have played in all 11 games this season, including some with multiple duties. They include Craig Kiley, who not only had his first home run of the season recently, but he has also played in five games with four saves.

Another player who has been moving around is Will Black. He been playing shortstop and also keeping the game intact behind the plate as catcher.

The team hasn’t necessarily made easy wins by getting down most games and coming back at the last second possible to pull off some unbelievable wins.

Now it’s up to them to see what they can do in conference play and make some noise in the ODAC tournament at the end of the year.
