Coach Mansanales returns six starters and two pitchers. The Princeton Panthers are looking to improve on a 13-13 2017 season. With two of their six returners being 2018 C Nathan Roets and 2019 SS Kole Massey, defense looks to be a strength for this team. Also 2019 CF Tristen Gee will be patrolling the outfield. Lastly lookout for 2018 P Austin Hitchcock to make a huge impact for this team on the mound.
