    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

2012 Saints Baseball Christmas Party

This Saints baseball program has had an annual Christmas party for some number of years now and this year was no different. The way we do it is by a “Chinese gift exchange” where the player buys for the guy above him (1 buys for 2, 2 buys, for 3…53 buys for 1). There is said to be a $20 cap but often times that gets exceeded. There are usually a wide variety of gifts and often times players will buy a gag gift and then also get the player something nice. The best part about the whole exchange though is if I think whoever bought for me the previous year (I’m #2 so #1 bought for me last year) gave me something crappy, you have to remember the order of buying gifts is reversed the next year and I am now buying for #1 this year. It just makes the whole experience more fun and exciting.

Also a little side note…Every year the captains send out a mass text telling everyone to dress up nice because we are entering someone else’s home and need to be respectful. (Suits are encouraged and shirts and ties are usually expected) Well little do the freshman know that everyone else is wearing sweats and a sweatshirt. So this is one of the little gags of initiation for freshman…good clean family fun!

It’s a really good time we meet up at one of our assistant coaches house and eat a nice dinner that is brought in from Grizzly’s and after everyone is finished we exchange gifts and then say our thank you’s and head out. It takes about two hours but is one of the things that makes the Saints baseball program what it is. As you can see from the picture this is only about 1/3 of the team but you can get a general image of what our Christmas gathering looks like.

 

May you have a Merry Christmas from the Saints baseball program!
