I am going to miss all of our Seniors from the 2013 graduating class. They all are stand up individuals and will live very successful lives!
In twenty five years of living, I must admit I have been wrong hundreds if not thosands of times. So when it comes to the app, Pinterest I must admit I was completely wrong. My best friend has been addicted to the app for months now always showing me the wedding ideas and home decoration ideas she pins on there. I labeled it as a girls only site and wantednothing to do with it.
Thankfully I took a chance and decided to explore the app. What I found is that it has a lot of uses for guys as well. For example, I don't have to post pictures on their, however i can explore pictures and pin pictures that are appealing to me to one of my boards.
A guy looking to to upgrade his backyard scenery could look under the sections, gardening and home/decor and find tons of ideas to choose his next fire pit or custom bbq. Also a guy could look under Men's Fashion to view clothing styles and to help select his next wrist watch.
I really feel that the site gives someone the opportunity to expand their credibility especially in fashion and home/decor. If the person shows a savvy sense of style in the pages they create and post they could become notorious as someone that people online look towards as an example, building up their private industry.
In its first season of Pacific West Conference play, Fresno Pacific had four
players honored as members of the 2013 All-PacWest team, the conference
Junior infielder Brett
Bishop became the team's first ever first-team All-PacWest
selection while senior shortstop Steven
Moon, junior outfielder Kaohu
Gaspar and senior relief pitcher Ryan
Cheek were named third-team All-PacWest. Bishop was also
named NCAA Division II First Team All-West Region by the American Baseball
Coaches' Association (ABCA).
Bishop hit .325 and led the team in runs
scored (38), doubles (11), homeruns (9), RBI (46) and slugging percentage
(.534), finishing among PacWest leaders in each of those categories as well.
Bishop also provided steady defense for the team, playing multiple positions
including catcher and all four infield spots.
Moon finished the season
strong, batting .293 and coming in second on the team with 48 hits, nine doubles
and 28 RBI on the year. In addition, Moon consistently dazzled Sunbird fans with
his gold-glove caliber defense at shortstop.
Gaspar led the team with a
.461 on-base percentage and 13 stolen bases. He batted .326 with 33 runs scored
(2nd on team), six doubles and 19 RBI.
Cheek finished with a team-best
2.05 ERA out of the bullpen in 22 innings pitched. He struck out 18 batters and
notched three saves while posting a 2-0 record.
FPU's pitching staff led
the PacWest in ERA, but despite strong numbers, neither of the Sunbirds' top two
starting pitchers, J.D.
Salles and Wilson
Ashford, were named to the all-conference team. Salles led
the team with 82 strikeouts and Ashford went 8-2 with a 2.27 ERA.
Sunbirds finished 21-15 in conference play to finish in fifth place out of 10
teams. The team reached the championship game of the NCCAA West Regional before
falling to PacWest co-champion California Baptist. CBU's Zach Esquerra was named
PacWest Player of the Year while Jon Bengard earned PacWest Pitcher of the Year.
Grand Canyon's Andy Stankiewicz was named Coach of the
Deal with professional portfolios has been much more beneficial than I could have ever imagined. Sites that I had never heard of nor dealt with such as LinkedIn and personal web pages create a place where you can create an actual advertisement whether it is yourself working towards your career goal or for example our baseball program will be able to give our fans constant updates on our season and the professional careers of our past players!
The benefits of LinkedIn are very simple, I had no clue how to work the website or create an account and there were constant pop ups reqqustions my professional and personal information and the next thing I knew the my page was formatted and set up for me! I felt accomplished with very little labor! The other benefit is that companyies and other professionals are able to search and find you based off of your information that your page contains and if they are searching for it!
With LinkedIn all of the pages are formatted the same, so there is a very difficult way of making your page stand out. This is when past employment or the university the individual may have earned their degree may trump the search process. Which could hurt the large amount of young indivi
Under the link featuring Statistics in Sports I found a tab labeled Career in Sports Statistics. I was very curious as to what and possibly how this was considered an actual career. Then I began to think of all the record keeping and time commitment it would take so I knew just then that I had to explore!
The website states that it is very valuable to begin a career path as an intern or part-time worker for a professional team, college or statistics agency. This career path is similar to any other career especially that of one in the sports world. As a college coach it is extremely difficult to immediately become a Head Coach, most of the time you begin as a graduate assistant or lower assistant coach and through hard work gradually work your way up the coaching ladder until a place is willing to take a chance on you as a head coach.
The section I found most interesting was labeled, "what kinda of data do you collect and analyze beyond team and individual performance?" The answers of long-term trends, performance by age and effects of changes in roles, equipment and stadiums was something I could relate to right away. In baseball performance by age is critical when it comes to players receiving new contracts, as well as how they perform against certain teams in certain baseball stadiums is always fun to view also. In college baseball, new bats were created a few years ago, these bats have drastically decreased the power numbers in college baseball, somethin
