We will release one team in our countdown each weekday leading up to the release of our 2020 #1 Preseason Power 25 team on March 19th. Then, on March 20th our PBR Maryland staff will release it's final preseason predictions for the upcoming season as team get ready to square off on opening day later that afternoon.

Season Snapshot

Steve Miller takes over a talented Stags program that figures to be one of the favorites to play for the WCAC Championship in 2020. Jack Bulger (Vanderbilt), and Blake Badman (Virginia) return for their senior seasons alongside a healthy Alex Greene (Virginia). Greene’s absence hurt tremendously last year but he looks fantastic and is primed to lead them on the mound and at the plate this season. The transfer of 2021 SS Coleman Calabrese (James Madison) helps sure up the infield and two players that can do a little of everything and should make a difference in the lineup are Jake Maske (Mount St. Mary’s), and Dwayne Preston II. Look for sophomore RHP Tyson Nercessian to also play a key role on the staff this season alongside seniors Cayden Boeskin, John Hilliard and junior Tommy Harrison
