Coast Guard has an off day today on its southern swing to Ft. Myers, Florida and that gave us a chance to talk to senior tri-captain and starting second baseman Matt Hanks.

The Bears have won four straight to open the season and are off to their best start since 2005, when the team won its first five games.

Yesterday, Coast Guard completed the first three-game sweep of archrival Merchant Marine since 2006 with a 6-3 win.

The Bears, who return seven everyday starters from last year, have also seen some outstanding freshmen performances during the first part of the week.

Hanks is not only a tri-captain of this team, but he is the spring 2015 regimental commander, the highest-ranking cadet. To read about Matt's journey to the Academy  CLICK HERE

Coast Guard is back in action on Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. against Minnesota Morris.
