 OUTLOOK:   

The Mules are balanced with pitching and hitting. They return 5 starting position players and 3 pitchers that had 15-innings or more in 2013. Poplar Bluff will be led by seniors Alex Lewis, Wesley Pyles (Committed - Southeast Missouri State), Cody Slusher, and Lucas Tibbs. Juniors Brandon Stuckenschnieder (Committed – Arkansas State) will be counted on for big production. Coach Bullington is also expecting solid play from underclassmen Joe Darlin, Kameron Misner, and Jared Moses. The Mules are very talented and have balance to their roster. Bonus: They are also heavy on left-handed pitching. Watch for Poplar Bluff to have a great 2014 season.
