Today's Flames Minute: Monday
This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Church Mutual Insurance, for this Monday, March 30, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.
Student-athletes are still coping with the cancellation of their seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a particularly tough break for Flames sophomore pitcher Joe Adametz, who said he had just pitched his best game ever, going seven shutout innings against Kent State with seven strikeouts to get the win. But through it all, Adametz says, he's finding a deeper purpose than just playing the sport he loves.
"Something that's important to me is like, being in God's word and I'm reading a lot and taking a quiet time to just kind of reflect on what he's just trying to teach me in this season where, the thing that drove me through a lot of college was baseball. But now that's kind of gone for a lot of people. So, what are you going to run to? Where are you going to find your purpose and identity? I think that is a great place to start."
Adametz led liberty and was fourth in the ASUN this year with a 1.59 ERA. Liberty finished the shortened season with a record of 10-7.
