OUTLOOK

The Hobart Brickies, led by Coach Glover, look to continue their success following a Final 8 appearance in 2015 and a 26-6 record.  Glover says they expect to fill big shoes from graduated seniors with a deep junior group and some experienced seniors.  Led by RHP Braden Niksich (3-3, 2.54 ERA, 37 Ks, 30 IP), the pitching staff has several competitive arms coming back.  RHP/OF Alex Batistatos pitched 30 innings in 2014 finishing with a 1.63 ERA while hitting .452 with 30 RBI and 28 SB.  SS/RHP Tyler Kenjic went 3-0 on the mound last spring with a 2.07 ERA and also hit .288. The Brickies look to compete in the NCC against Andrean and Munster who tied for 1st place in 2014.   The northern part of Indiana has several talented players and teams to compete against, but Coach Glover believes they will be very competitive in the state playoffs.
