Coach’s season outlook: “We will look to bounce back after a disappointing year. We have talent, but not much experience. The league is very difficult, week in and week out, and we hope to be in the hunt at the end. Our defense should be very solid and we have good team speed. Our pitching staff has talent, but needs to develop, and come together quickly. Our goal is to get better every day and play our best baseball at the end of the season.”
