STARTERS RETURNING                 9
RETURNING PITCHERS                  4

POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
The Raiders were shocked in the Regional Final by a hot Mooreville club that continued their high level of play to a state title in 2019.  Returning their entire lineup and maybe the most complete pitching staff in the state will set the bar high entering 2020, but the Raiders probably don’t care what anyone else thinks should happen… they know they have unfinished business in 2020.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
The pitching staff is deep and complete with elite stuff and pitch-ability.  There will be good arms that are fighting for innings because of the depth.  The key to 2020 will be how the offense handles seeing top arms in their area and then in the playoffs.  At some point a key game will come down to offensive execution and an offensive identity.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“We have quite a bit of experience coming back for the 2020 season, both pitching/defensively and offensively. Great group of players that I totally enjoy coaching as well as being very fortunate to coach. Hard working. determined group that wants to be the best they can be.”
