Strengths:  “The team has some varsity experience returning, and team attitude has improved. Experience from last season should give some confidence entering this season.”

Question marks:  Unsuccessful season last year with record and attitude. If all the players sacrifice and play as a team, the season will be a success.” 

Outlook:  “As always if the entire team has a ‘team attitude,’ we will have success.  If the team plays as expected, we should battle every inning of every game.” 

Fun fact:  The team will be taking its annual weekend trip to the Poconos (Beaver Run Hunting and Fishing Club)  A special thanks to John Much, member of the club and our scorekeeper and statistician, for the team invite.. This is the 16thyear for the trip.  It is a great time to bond with teammates and have some competitive fun.
