Team Strengths

Power - Palm Beach Gardens enters 2021 with two of the biggest power threats in the state in Aidan Meola and Cade Bush.


Palm Beach Gardens heads into 2021 after a disappointing 4-6 2020 season. They bring back a strong group of seniors both offensively and on the mound. Offensively, they are led by 3B Aidan Meola (Oklahoma State), 1B Cade Bush (Florida State), and Dominic Presto (FAU). On the mound, they are led by a trio of senior arms in LHP Tyler Rapf (FAU), RHP Dominic Stagliano (Stetson), and RHP Tobin Moran (Santa Fe). The Gators are deep on both sides of the ball and should be a tough matchup in 2021.
