2022 Spring Team Preview: Columbiana Clippers

Team Name: Columbiana Clippers
Head Coach: Ryan Wolf
Division: III
2021 Record: 17-10
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 6/5

2022 Team Strengths:

  • Pitching Depth
  • Power

Coach Outlook: "We are five deep on the mound this year all with varsity experience. Our big focus this season will be to get on base more and being more aggressive on the base paths to push across more runs. We believe with our pitching staff, one or two more runs a game will play a big difference in winning another league title and making a run in the tournament."
