Proud UL parent reflects on winning baseball team

Caleb Adams has been lights out this year for the Cajuns. Ranking in the top 50 nationally in average, hits, runs, triples, home runs, all batting stats there are. He is a First Team All-Sun Belt outfielder, a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Award and was tabbed to the Golden Spikes Watch List.

Players work extremely hard to make it to college athletics. They chase the dream of not only playing in the NCAA, but to make the epic trek to Omaha for the College World Series.

For a parent, being allowed to see their child accomplish their dreams is surreal. For Caleb, no one is more proud of him and his career than his father Carter Adams. "He's done very well. He has worked very hard; even on the days he wasn't quite on, I have enjoyed every moment of it," Carter told KATC.

Caleb's father is not only proud of him, but the entire Cajun team on this #MissionToOmaha. His emotions don't stop at their accomplishments on the field, but off the field as well. "Seeing the boy graduating last week even though it wasn't my son, was a proud moment for all the parents. They are all family and it is uplifting to see them creating the future."

He told us getting to see his son on this journey, "is a dream come true and the opportunity of several life times. It has been a great run and every day has gotten more and more intense and more and more interesting and more valuable as an experience."

Even though Caleb's baseball career in the NCAA has another year, he was drafted yesterday by the Angels of Anaheim in the 10th round of the MLB draft.

"It was a day like no other, yesterday. One that you can only live through once. I think you will find you will go through every emotion you could ever have." Carter said as he tried to explain the emotion that overcomes a parent when they see their child's ultimate dream becoming a reality.
