”The team has been working hard all off-season and the first 2 weeks of practice. They are anxious to get the season going. Returning experience on the mound and pitching depth should be an asset in 2024. Defensively the 2024 team looks very solid. The success of our season will come from our ability to manufacture runs in scoring opportunities.” - Brad Ward & Travis Ralfs, Head Coach
