Outlook
Expectations are high for the Warriors this year, coming off a 29-win season in 2017. Although Coach Rob Scarbrough lost a lot of senior leadership, the Warriors are primed to make some noise after gaining a ton of experience a year ago. Alex Trice, Baylor Frazier and Hayden Scarbrough will provide a spark in the lineup for the Corinth Warriors as they return off of a productive 2017. On the mound, look for Treven Knight and Cooper Frazier to have an increased role throughout the 2018 campaign.
