Coach’s comments: “This year’s team will have to bring it every day; that’s the mindset they must have. We have such a tough schedule that we have to play strong from the outset. We only have two seniors, but we have back-to-back classes (junior and sophomore) that are really deep. They are really baseball-orientated, so that should help us. I feel comfortable with our pitchers because our freshmen have experience with elite travel teams. We will be looking for some pop at the plate, and that has to come from our younger players.
Defensively we should be solid all the way around; our outfield has speed. Our base running will be a strength. These kids are developing the mindset of stretching singles into doubles and doubles into triples.”
