And if I had put all my eggs in one basket, and then that basket dropped and all my eggs shattered and my life were a yolky, sticky, salmonella-y mess, then I’d get some new damn eggs and put them in a different damn basket. There’s no “what if” to torment you; you can start again.
The Binghamton baseball team rebounded from last weekend’s series sweep with a 6-5 walk-off win over Siena on Tuesday, only to be swept again over the weekend by America East-rival Maine at Mahaney Diamond in Orono, Maine.
Last week, Zach Blanden topped out the America East in four offensive categories. He was first in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and runs scored. Right behind him was fellow senior outfielder Jake Thomas, who ranked either second, third or fourth in all the same categories.
At the awards banquet, select standouts from the more than 400 student-athletes at Binghamton were honored for athletic, academic and career achievement as well as individual perseverance and community service involvement.
Head coach Tim Sinicki was just two shy of his 500th career win entering the weekend. With his team emerging victorious, 2-1, out of its three-game series at NYIT, Binghamton’s longest-tenured coach reached that milestone in decisive style after a 5-1 rubber-match victory to top things off on Sunday.
The event, which boasted Lobo as its featured speaker, drew a record-setting attendance this year with over 550 attendees. Since its inception in 2006, the luncheon has also raised over $250,000 for its Binghamton Bearcats Athletics Association Women’s Scholarship Fund, established in 2007 and awarded to two female student-athletes annually.
