Season Outlook
The Bullpups started as many as five freshman at times in 2019 and the key to success will be how that class has matured for this spring.  McPherson will be lead by Jakob Feil, a pitcher and second baseman and catcher Spencer Whitfield.  The two are experienced and should provide the leadership to the younger players.  Dylan Rinker put together an outstanding sophomore year on the mound, logging the most innings and should be the number starter from day one.  McPherson will have a lot to be excited about in 2020.
