WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
Expectations for Team - Pitching looks to be the Tigers strength in 2023. They get back three arms that threw a ton of important innings for them a year ago. The pitching staff should allow time for the new guys in the lineup to get comfortable as the Tigers look to repeat as conference champs.

Expected Team Strength - The team's expected strengths is our pitching staff, returning 3 seniors (2 committed) who carried a good number of important innings from a year ago along with other arms that got plenty of unexpected experience last year. This staff is made up of some of the best competitors we've had in sometime.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
We are looking to build off of last's year conference tournament championship and our 3rd round appearance. This year we have seven seniors who have had a great deal of experience from the last two years. I expect us to come out hungry and ready to grind through a long season playing tough competition.
