The College of Southern Maryland Hawks baseball team faced the professional minor league Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in an exhibition game at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf April 21. The team is excited to match their skills to those of a professional team, said CSM Coach Joe Blanford prior to the Hawks loss to the Blue Crabs. The Hawks made a good showing with some pitchers having scoreless innings and several Hawks batters reaching base through hits or walks, according to Blanford.
The team finished their season with a 12-28 record and, according to Blanford, one of the highest grade point averages as a team. I enjoyed coaching these young men.
