Frank Menendez - Menendez is a highly regarded southpaw in the 2023 class. The Gator recruit will be a big factor for Doral in 2023 as the ace of the staff.



After winning the 6A State Championship in 2022, Doral is back with a lot of the same team as last season. The Firebirds are deep in all aspects of their roster. Leading the way on the hill will be senior Florida recruit, Frank Menendez. Menendez is one of the top arms in the state and will be leaned on heavily. Offensively, the Firebirds are led by Miami recruit Adrian Santana. Santana will be a big factor on both sides of the ball with his speed, defense, and hit-ability. Doral has plenty of depth that will help them be one of the best teams in the state once again.
