    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.

Saints Baseball Travels with Technology

People have always been saying that technology has a big influence on the younger generations; including college students. This concept certainly applies to the Saints baseball team as we spend a lot of time traveling on coach buses to away games. Currently we are on our way to Aberdeen, SD to play a three game series with conference opponent Presentation College. Aberdeen is seven and a half hours from Duluth. For the baseball team this trip seems like nothing compared to our thirty-hour trip to Ft. Pierce, Florida for our annual Spring Break trip. With all of this traveling, we certainly make the most out of our time through technology.

The photo below depicts two freshman baseball players, Brody Olson and Shayne Ciernia playing NHL 12 on a Play Station 3 (PS3). These two students brought a television from their dorm room, with the knowledge that the bus would have outlets on them so they could plug in their TV and PS3 system.

Although this idea to bring a TV on the bus to play videogames to pass the time on the bus is a fairly new one, we always have some sort of technological gadget or game to help pass the time.

Just about everyone on the bus has a smart phone, which allows the downloading of applications. Some of the more popular applications are Angry Birds, Draw Something, Temple Run, and Tiny Wings. Most of us are also constantly utilizing the Internet on our laptops or cell phones reading our e-mail, typing papers, and/or checking up on our Facebook and twitter accounts. When I look around I see just about everybody with headphones or ear buds rocking out to their favorite road trip tunes on their phones or iPods. For those of us who aren’t engaged in these technologies there is constantly a movie playing on the coach buses’ TV screens.

Even though the road trips can get pretty long, the technological advances make our trips much easier and a lot less boring. So whether it’s simply typing a paper on a laptop or playing videogames with a portable TV and PS3, there is always some sort of entertaining technology on our bus trips keeping us occupied.
