Season Outlook
Head Coach Dan Meara will enter his first season as skipper of the Bishop Miege baseball program.  He will have a talented group in 2016 and will look to repeat as the regional champions and make a run for the state title.  A trio of players earned All-Conference honors last season.  Senior LHP Sam Duncan will be at the top of the rotation, with a pair of talented all-conference infielders behind him.  Sophomore Carter Putz, a Notre Dame commit, and senior Sam Burdolski will anchor down the defense and be a big part of the offensive line-up as well.  The Stags also feature a pair of top-notch pitchers in the 2017 class, Kansas State commit Daniel Harper and LHP Adam White. The Stags will look to build on the success from a season ago and start a new era of Miege baseball under Coach Meara.
