Team Expectations:

"We should be pretty good offensively and in the infield. We have some really nice arms, but inexperienced at varsity level. We do have our ace Sterling Patick back. He's one of the better arms in SoCal. He will have us in every game with anyone on our schedule. He's that good."

Team Strengths:

 "We are very good at the top 1/2 of the lineup with D1 commits Marcos Rosales, Paul Vazquez, and Noah Malone."

Areas of Improvement:

"We will go how our 2-4 pitchers go for the season."  

College Commitments:

Marcos Rosales SS - Cal State Fullerton

Sterling Patick P - UCSB

Paul Vazquez - 3B Oregon State

Noah Malone Utility - LSU

Jo Jo Moreno P- UCSB
