Coach’s comments: “We have a strong nucleus. We have had more practices outside because of the artificial turf on the football field. Three of the freshmen who have moved away also were pitchers, so depth will be a challenge. We will have a whole new infield. Our season depends on how well some of our kids who have not played varsity baseball perform. The newcomers will man the outfield. We have enough to be competitive, but the question is: How many games can we win? We always try to develop a team that is ready to compete when sectionals begin.
