CMU Baseball Player, Beal City Native Skates on Ice-Covered Baseball Field

Central Michigan baseball’s season opener is just a short time away.

With all the snow and ice we’ve seen lately, CMU’s baseball field isn’t quite ready to play on.

But that didn’t stop one Chippewa from getting his reps in over the weekend.

Sophomore and Beal City native Chase Rollin tweeted out a video of him lacing up his skates and heading out to an ice covered Keilitz Field at Theunissen Stadium.

“Tyler Hankins was actually on the couch across from me, and he was like, ‘Dude, my friend just sent me the link. It’s on Barstool,'” Rollin said. “At that point, I was like this is crazy. That was an adrenaline rush for sure.”

The tweet has gained some nationwide attention with feedback ranging as far as the Colorado Rockies to right here with the Detroit Tigers.

CMU’s season opener is in Alabama as they begin 2019 with a weekend series at Troy University.
