”We return several starters from last summer but still will be a very young team with only 3 seniors on the roster. We will look to our veteran pitchers to lead us early on in the season as we figure out who our 9 best hitters are. We are excited about the potential this group has between our returning starters, newcomers, and a few guys we got back from 2024 injuries.” - TONY STENBERG, Head Coach
