When you think of ACC baseball, you’re not necessarily thinking of a team in the Northeast, but Boston College certainly got some folks to do a geographical readjustment this season. Coming out of a very tough ACC Atlantic division, the Eagles finished just one game shy of Omaha, losing a three game Super Regional to Miami in Miami. Boston College has been to Omaha four times, but it’s been at least 50 years since their last trip. Mike Gambino aims to change that.
In this episode, Coach Gambino talks about the value of a Jesuit education, how specialization has gone a little too far, the value of spring road trips as preparation for the postseason, team culture (“brothers”), team vs. program (long term view), and finishes up by talking about Pete Frates, ALS, and the Ice Bucket Challenge.
