”This is a hungry group with a good mix of returning experience and younger guys battling for starting spots in the early part of the season. We'll be looking for some younger guys to step up and fill some holes in the lineup and pitching staff, but we believe this is a group that will continue to grow together and put themselves in position to make a good run at the end of the season.” - JESSE JABLONSKI, Head Coach
