Coppin State Sports Information
BALTIMORE, Md. – On Sunday morning, the Coppin State baseball team began a new partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation by working with the James Mosher Little League Baseball Program. This foundation’s mission is to ‘help build character and teach critical life lessons to at-risk young people living in America’s most distressed communities.’
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to assist the James Mosher Little League Program through our strong partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Baseball Foundation,” said CSU Head baseball Coach Sherman Reed. “I was very impressed with how well our student athletes held the attention of the young guys during our chalkboard session. While the baseball instruction remains an important element of our partnership, we look forward to covering topics that will prepare the kids for living happy and productive lives.”
The theme for the opening session was Communication, which included public speaking and how good communication can transfer to the baseball field. The Eagles players also assisted with in-game instruction during the James Mosher (10u & 12u) contest with Northwood Little League.
The theme for next Saturday’s session will be Sportsmanship.
Coppin State won the MEAC North for the first time in 22 years this past Spring and matched a program-record with 21 victories, advancing to the MEAC Semifinals.
