Fordham could sell it as the "Best tailgating in NYC".

Unless you are an Alum, the game day experience is lousy.  Clean Bathrooms are a plus, but not much else.

Maybe a two-fer with Arthur Ave, NYBG or NYZS? Free Shuttles.

Food trucks would be cool, and an Alumni Tent serving beer at every game.

Rutgers and West Point have a great Game Day experience.

Since the inception of a decent tailgate scene 3-4 years ago or so, I actually disagree with this comment. Things can obviously be better, but I throw 1-2 tailgates a year and many non-Fordham friends attend and love the day out. Its become a highlight on their calendars.

Today might be a good day to pick out a game or two and get'em on the calendar. Saturday's fill up fast!

Also leaving is Quense, our ace pitcher.  She graduated but had another year of eligibility and was suppose to be going to Gabelli grad school at Lincoln Ctr but rumor has it that she'll play elsewhere, maybe Pitt. 

With 6 pitchers on the roster without her, I don't think Bridget was expecting her back any way.

If Pitt, it's a good program with new facilities, but personally, I think if she wants to succeed in business, NYC is the place to be.

That sounds like a great idea, both could work from their strengths.  It would also be great if Jen could find a pitcher or two at her talent level Wink
Agree as to work from their strengths. 

I think incoming freshman Rauch has the potential to be at Jen's talent level with good coaching.  She throws harder and has a changeup, which Jen didn't have, but Jen had movement and pinpoint accuracy.  Unfortunately, now that she's recently  married, I think it'll be more difficult to get her to move.

Scott, most immediately would be 2, for next year's seniors, Shaw (IF and power hitter) and Figueroa (OF and slapper).  Yes, scholarship or partial.  Softball gets to split scholarships up.  I think unless one goes through coaches, the player has to initiate contact with the coach prior to the end of their Junior year.  One often sees the best Texas players verbally committing as Sophomores.  Makes it tough for Bridget unless she sees them in one of the 3 tournaments she goes to in the summer.

Odd coincidence in coaching announcements.  Former Ram Kayla Lombardo just announced she's going to be an assistant at Lehigh, then, within days, Reese Mariconda announces she's going to GT.  Wonder if Lombardo was considered for Mariconda's job.  Both were infielders.  Would love to steal Jen Mineau from St. Joe's as pitching coach and move Gabby Leuty over to the other assistant.

Thanks tx.

Any idea how many spots we are recruiting?  All scholarship?

Jack spent a couple of years in the Mets system, got as high as AA:

Returned to his hometown and became a respected teacher and coach. A regular Doc Graham.

Heck of an athlete and leader. Always composed under fire. He had those sold out Garden games in the palm of his hand.

Assistant Coach Reese Mariconda, who had been with us for 4 years, a former Virginia Tech star infielder, is leaving to be Assistant Coach at Georgia Tech.  GT used to be a top 50 team but had fallen off to 155 last year.

Tough time to be losing a key assistant, in the middle of recruiting season.
