2017 Spring Team Preview: Aurora Greenmen

Team Name: Aurora
Head Coach: Michael Brancazio
Division: I
2016 Record: 14-11
Conference Record: Suburban League - American Conference
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 6/4

2017 Team Strengths:

  • Pitching Experience
  • Athleticism
  • Catching Depth

2017 Team Weaknesses:

  • Defense
  • Power Hitting

Coach Outlook: "2016 season: Aurora went with a youth movement as they had to replace 9 seniors from their 2015 Final Four season. The hope is that these young players will continue to develop their skills and give Aurora the opportunity to compete come post-season play."

PBR Outlook: The Greenmen of Aurora and head coach Michael Brancazio look to improve from the 2016 season which saw a youth movement. The Greenmen have the talent to compete with anyone.
