The Trojans return:
a 4-year starter at catcher; All-ITCL.
a 4-year starter at third; All-ITCL.
a 4-year starter at short; 2nd team All-ITCL at P.
a 3-year starter at second; HM All-ITCL.
a very good right fielder.
the starting center fielder.
a very good soph. pitcher who lettered.
They have several others who will fill needed roles.
The Trojans will field a very competitive team. They should battle Mcd, Lowellville, and Western Reserve for the title.
Long-time head coach Doug Eaton is assisted by one of the best, in long-time Hot Stove League coach Bob Weekly. Both men have a wealth of experience and knowledge.
The Trojans have some positions to fill. Coach Eaton and Coach Weekly will have the Trojans on their toes. The Trojans will rely on their seniors. There's two weeks of practice to see who can step up.So 11 how was the first day on the playing field how did they look?Yes he will be a good addition and have to adjust to firstbase just don't try to send them home from first...lol....advice from a former 1st base coach....and Coach Weekly has always enjoyed being on the bench more then out in the field which will help the team hope he gets to call the pitches for the game cause that is one of his strong assets which I think could help the pitchers and the team.........nice to add some eye's and baseball knowledge to the team lets hope that it gets used cause we all know that 6 eye's are better than 2. LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING 11 IN HIS UNIFORM!!!!!!
When you're in a league, you always save 1 and 2 for those games. I'm guessing that EC and Malvern will also use their 3 and 4. LC will have the luxury of just going through thier rotation. They have a very nice program in Hartville. Senior dominated.some pretty good non-conf. games in Malvern, LC, EC, and St. Thomas. Malvern and LC were both state-ranked last year with most of there starters back. Hopefully your 3 & 4 pitchers have a little, or could be a long weekend
Good Luck Trojans
