The 2022 DCG Mustang baseball team will have a nice blend of youth and experience. Our lineup has great potential to feature very solid hitters 1-9 with a strong middle of the lineup group of hitters. The defense could be a strength with good overall team athleticism. The pitching staff is inexperienced past the top 2 pitchers, but could be deep with good arms behind them.” Head Coach Byron Peyton
