Season Outlook

Carl Junction has had a rich history in baseball and has high expectations for the 2018 season. Although the Bulldogs don't return a ton of experience we have some exciting young players that are ready for there chance to contribute this season.  A key focus for Carl Junction will the leadership provided by upperclassmen.  Senior Dawson Fenix is a returning All-District performer that has a lot of Varsity game experience.  He is a veteran leader that will be a large part of the team's success this spring. Junior Jeremiah Kennedy will return as the most experienced pitcher for the Bulldogs this spring, and will look to lead the pitching staff on and off the field. The Bulldogs will be under first year head coach, Jake Stevenson, as they look to get back into the state playoffs this spring.
