One of my former teammates Grant Achilles is now an assistant coach with the baseball team and was nice enough to take us on a tour to see the new renovations and also introduce us to the new coaching staff, all of whom were great guys. After speaking with the coaches and viewing the facility the future is looking bright for Wake baseball.
Laura was amazed at what school is like down here. We pulled in and the first thing she saw was a girl wearing a prom dress and high heels shoes and a guy wearing slacks, a collared shirt, and a sports coat, and she asked, "where are they going?" I said, "to class." I was probably a little out of place when I used to roll into History in my sweatpants, cutoff sleeves, and sandals, but I was damn comfortable. Another thing we both noticed is, we are really, really old. You know you're an old bastard when you walk onto a college campus and ask, "Is it just me or do college kids look a lot younger than they use to?" I guess I have to accept my role as, "the creepy old guy."
Anyways, we had a great time and would have liked to stay longer, but we had to get back on the road to our final destination of Florida. Below is a quick video I took of campus. I hope everyone enjoys and go Deacs!
