POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
Davie won a very hard fought and contested conference title in 2019.   The 2020 club brings back a lot of experience, and an expectation of winning, but they may have to learn to win in different ways.   Where the 2019 club had veterans on the mound, the 2020 club may be lead at the plate.  The cupboard is not bare on the mound, but look for the offense to create big innings in big games to get back to where they were in 2019.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
While the pitching staff may lack one true high end ace, they do have depth and the ability to create favorable matchups.  Roles may change constantly based on the matchups for the week.  The ability for the pitchers to accept the staff concept and roles could create constant issues for opponents.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“This team has worked extremely hard to put themselves in position to be competing in the CPC and in NC. Bring back a deep lineup that we were able to add a few guys to that really developed in the offseason.”
