Despite the below zero temperatures out there we're talking baseball now. The B.U. Bearcats are picked to repeat an America East Conference Championship. This according to the Collegiate Baseball newspaper who released their projected conference standings and individual accolades. B.U. is ranked first ahead of Stony Brook and Maine. The Bearcats' great expectations don't end there. Junior Outfielder Jake Thomas is the projected America East Player of the Year. The Bearcats have their first spring practice Friday. This video is obviously practice from last year. I'm guessing that Friday's practice will be indoors.
