X-FACTOR

Aidan Miller - Miller is the top freshman in the state of Florida and will have a big role this season. As a utility player who can play almost every position, the Mustangs will look for Miller to be a key part of this team’s success in 2020.

KEY PLAYERS LOST
Sebastian Zieba, 1B, 2019 (Belmont Abbey)
Kyle Lang, OF, 2019

OUTLOOK
The Mitchell Mustangs went 25-2 last season and return most of their core in 2020. Leading that core is C/RHP Jackson Miller (Wake Forest). Miller led the team in innings last season and was their best hitter. He was 9-1 with a 0.67 ERA and 81 strikeouts while also batting .464 with 32 RBI in 2019. Taking over as the team’s ace is senior Mason Miller (FGCU), a tall lefty that sits in the low 90’s. Adding to the rotation are sophomore LHP Ashton Crowther (Miami) and freshman Aidan Miller, who will make a big impact for this team all over the field. Offensively, the Mustangs bring back senior Kyle Murphy to bolster their lineup. Mitchell has a talented team back this year and they will have a chip on their shoulder after being knocked out early in regionals last season.
