Season Outlook
After being on the brink of a Final Four appearance in 2015, the Stockton Tigers open the 2016 as the #3 ranked team in Class 3.  Stockton returns most of its players from a season ago, including three players with All-State honors.  Missouri Southern commit, senior C Alex Wheeler will lead the way.  Wheeler is solid behind the plate and and can add some pop in the line-up.  Seniors Colton Brown and Collin Burns also earned all state honors and be prepared to build on their 2015 performance.  The Tigers are loaded with seniors with Eli Hubbard, Garrett Burns, and Cameron Ramsey.  The trio earned All-District honors and will round out the line up expecting to take the next step this spring.  Stockton will have a pair of younger players that should have impact this season, junior INF/C Skyler Fishburn and freshman INF Clayton Hubbard.  Watch out for the Tigers this spring, they are experienced and full of seniors ready to compete for the Class 3 title.
