Cooper Bode OF/P 2026, 5'10/170 L/L, Saw some time last year mostly at DH, but is growing into a role on the mound as well.

Coach’s Insight:

“This team has a great group of leaders at the forefront. They've been deep into the postseason and know what it takes to get there. There is quality depth at most positions with depth on the mound being a big plus. The line up has an opportunity to be deep and do damage down the order as well as at the top. There are a few guys who will be seeing their first extensive varsity baseball time who will be relied upon early. ” – Josh Baker, head coach
