Final Comments:
We have high expectations for the 2022 season but know that we will need to earn whatever we achieve. Depth of pitching is a huge asset as well as the run producers we have returning in the lineup. Our biggest area to improve is defense where we will be trying different combinations of players in different positions to find the best fit to be successful in that area of the game.
