Well, this is it.

2014 is over and with 2015 on the horizon, there’s going to be a lot of changes.

New Year’s Resolutions will be made…and broken. And with a new year comes a new time for Breaking Ball.

Lately I haven’t been writing much because of the hustle and bustle of senior year and serving as Senior Editor for The Gavel at BC. But in 2015, I’ll be creating more content for the site.

For now, check out 14 articles I wrote in 2014. Give them a read and let me know what you thought of the articles were your favorite.

In no particular order:
