2024 Outlook: “I think this is the deepest roster we have had in a while. 12 seniors and 10 are going on to play college baseball. We have a ton of experience, especially Jaxon Kehoe, Harry Carr and Austin Cannon who have started every game since freshman year. We have been to 3 straight state semifinal games so we are looking to get over the hump and make a trip to Penn State. The PCL will be very competitive with some excellent arms. The addition of Cory Sheridan gives us major depth at pitching, which allows us to use Harry Carr and Jaxon Kehoe out of the bullpen to limit their innings and keep them fresh for the playoff push. Obviously they are the left side of our infield, so look for Sheridan, Calise and Ortegae to take the roles of starting pitchers with a ton of options from the bullpen. Lineup loses 1st Rounder Kevin McGonigle but returns the other 8 key contributors ”
Steve DeBarberie, Head Coach
