Team: Bishop Donahue
Nickname:
Bishops
Class:
A
League:
OVAC
Head Coach: Bob Kleeh
2014 Overall Record: 14-12 (Lost in Region Final)

TOP PLAYERS:
Jesse Padlow, RHP, Class of 2015 (went 5-2 in 2014)
Brett Moore, IF/OF, Class of 2015 (hit .365 as a junior)
Alex Riedel, C, Class of 2015 (hit .375 in 2014)

SEASON OUTLOOK:
The Bishops look to build on their region finals appearance of a year ago. A tough 6-3 loss to St. Mary's could be the fuel to ignite a strong season and get them over the hump in 2015. Staff ace Jesse Padlow will be counted on heavily after earning two section playoff wins and notching the win in the region semifinals.

According to the Coach:
"Our top end pitching will be good, but we are thin. We have some holes to fill defensively but should have an above average offense and team speed."
