Season Outlook
CH Flowers will be led by Damani Hamm, Thomas Espinosa and Anthony Robinson Jr. Hamm, who hit .481 last season will patrol third base for the Jaguars. At the other corner is Espinosa, who hit .441. Robinson hit .491 for the Jaguars last season while patrolling centerfield and had 31 stolen bases as well. He is one piece to a great overall team speed in which Flowers hope to create pressure on the bases as well and make the field smaller on the defensive end. Keep an eye on freshmen Tremayne Cobb Jr and Joshua Cochrane who could play some key roles for the team this season. 

The Jaguars will have a young pitching staff this year and will be calling upon many arms early as they hope to be able to establish a consistent rotation and bullpen over the course of the year. They will have to find a replacement for Justen Howard who led the team with six wins. New coach George Brown Jr feels that the teams overall improvement on defense will help a young pitching staff mold during the season and help the team.
