OUTLOOK
Pine Forest comes into the 2020 season with many of their starters returning from last season. They are led by Troy commit Tekoah Roby. Roby was the Eagles best bat and arm on the mound last season. He batted .384 with 3 HRs and and 28 RBI in 2019 while also posting a 1.19 ERA with 109 strikeouts. Roby will be a crucial part of Pine Forest’s success in 2020. Also returning is West Florida commit, C/RHP Jason Roberts. Roberts logged the second most innings for the Eagles in 2019 and was one of the top bats in their lineup. He batted .325 with 3 HRs and 16 RBI in 2019. Rounding out the Eagles top returners are the middle infield tandem of Timmy Williams and John Pinette. The Eagles have a strong group returning and should be a tough team to beat in 2020. Make sure to follow @pbrflorida on Twitter for the most up-to-date coverage throughout the season.
