ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
The Albany State Golden Rams Baseball team is getting ready to face off their first opponent in SIAC Tournament.
The Rams were in full swing Monday fixing any last-minute kinks they may have, but Albany State hasn't looked like they have had many of those all year.
Rams finished the season with a 15-5 record in their last 20 games.
The Golden Rams finished the regular season 24-16, and 15-4 in conference play, enough to give them the first seed.
The team knows that with this number 1 seed, means a lot of responsibility, but it also means they can't let it get ahead of who they are as a team.
"We gotta play confident," said Michael Reddick, "know that we are the number one seed, but we can't get arrogant. It's like a brand-new season. Everybody is 0 - 0 and anything can happen."
"We I feel very confident going into this tournament," said Trey McMillian, "and I feel like we've worked really hard. I feel like we deserve it. I feel like going into it, I feel like we are going to go ahead and be a team and get the championship."
Both the Albany State Golden Rams Baseball and Softball teams are in the first seeded position, and Albany State will have the home field advantage this season as Albany is hosting the tournament this year.
The Golden Rams will face LeMoyne-Owen College on Thursday at 4P.M. and Paul Eames sports complex.
