2020 Outlook:

Coach Jeremy Heinen had this to say about the upcoming season:  "I am really looking forward to seeing our returning pitchers (237 innings last year) play a big part in our success.  We have a lot of younger kids excited for their chance to show they can do it at this level.  They all have worked extremely hard in the off-season."
