By Greg Williams

The Parkland Trojans are coming off a 15-7 campaign in 2012 and will look to their offense to supply run support for a very young pitching staff in 2013. The Trojans return four starters and three pitchers with varsity pitching experience. Coach Tony Galucy realizes he has a young group of pitchers, but he is excited about the depth of the staff. Following is a breakdown of players that Galucy hopes will make an impact in 2013.
