The University of Texas at Arlington’s baseball team has been working hard all year. They have had wins, losses, extra innings, and tons of time on the road. I wanted to find out how they manage and what they do to prepare for games after a big win. Some of the front runners helped me understand why they are so successful and the secret to reaching thier goals. For a look inside, just push play.
