William Carey Baseball Team Returns to the Diamond

Posted: Updated:

With the summer months winding down, the William Carey Crusaders get back to swinging the bats.

"We'll have a good five week session here in the fall, and kind of evaluate what we have an where we need to go," says William Carey head baseball coach Bobby Halford.

After those five weeks, Halford says the players will continue to run and lift weights as a part of an offseason strength and conditioning program.

At that point, the offseason is a distant memory.

"Once we get to that winter term it gets here pretty quick - our season does - and we open up on Jan. 31 this year in Fla.," says Halford.

William Carey looks to build on last year's positives once 2014 rolls around, something Halford says the whole team is excited about.

"Last year we had a good club and we hosted an opening round of the national tournament, and so a lot of these guys got a good experience, so I'm looking forward to it - they are too," says Halford.

But with the team's first game still more than four months out, Halford says the players maintain a day-by-day approach.

"Baseball's baseball and you're getting to come out here everyday and practice and play, and they enjoy doing it and this is what they're here for so this is their job, this is their work, and so each day we're trying to get better," says Halford.

As for Halford, he carries out a similar approach to the upcoming season in his 28th year with the Crusaders.

"It's just another year - it's just still baseball," says Halford. "It's the same thing, and so we're getting after it every year."

The Crusaders are in the second week of their fall session.
