Final Comments:
We will be very young this season, but have a group of kids that love baseball and continue to get better every day. I think our lineup top to bottom will be really strong this season. I anticipate once again battling for a conference championship in a very tough league. Our big unknown right now is our pitching. I am excited to see these kids continue to develop and see where it takes us! We have a great group of guys who love the game, but more importantly love playing for a cause bigger than self, Jesus Christ!
