”We graduated a lot of good ballplayers and quality people from last years State Semi final team. We have some younger guys that have waited their time and are hungry to perform under the lights. I love how the guys have been approaching the offseason but now its go time! This group needs to come together and get better every week to reach their maximum potential. Looking forward to watching this group of baseball players grow as one!” - KOURY KRAMER, Head Coach
