Arkansas High School Spring Spotlight: Maumelle

The Arkansas high school baseball season kicks off on Feb. 26, opening day for regular season action under AAA regulations. Leading up to opening day, we’ll be publishing our team previews ahead of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all state classifications, counting down through the official Prep Baseball Arkansas Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Perennially, we’ve submitted a preseason questionnaire to high school head coaches across the entire state. Their responses have been flooding in and we’re using the detailed insight they’ve provided in our team-by-team preseason analysis.

Coach’s Insight:

“The strength of this team will be the experience they gained from a semi-final run last season in the state tourney. Returning 8 out of 10 starters and all of the pitching staff will enable our team to have the ability to overcome and have drive. We return our top 5 arms and all of them have next level ability and mentality. The biggest concern coming into the year is complacency and looking too far ahead. We must play each game one at a time.” – Chris Foor, head coach
