RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

Our pitching staff. We have a nice blend of experience and young talent with plenty of right hand and left hand content. I like our defense as well, all around the infield and outfield with depth.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

No question our lack of offensive execution has put significant pressure on our pitching and defense. We have to hit better, move runners and score runs.

OTHER THAN OUR TEAM, WHO WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT IN YOUR LEAGUE AND WHY

Heidelberg will be at the top of the league I think. Baseball America chose Heidelberg’s Derek Hugg as the predicted DIII player of the year. However, they are blessed with many talented players on that roster.
