Final Comments:
Pitching is obviously the key and staying away from injuries. Tai Resendes is key in the leadoff spot like last year. We will play a few 9th graders and keeping them positive is key. Addison Cothern returning from open-heart surgery in December is our miracle this year.

We are concentrating more on mindset and body language this year. With such a young and inexperienced team it's vital for the future. Our goal is compete, at our highest potential, every pitch, every inning, every game!!!
