2014 Outlook:
Elmira returns some experienced players from last year’s 11-10 season. Four of those top returners are headed to play college baseball next year, so the Express certainly have enough fire power to compete in section IV. Roman Wild will anchor the staff for Elmira, while the experienced returners have Head Coach Jason Manwaring feeling good about the upcoming season.

"Our team will have a solid group of returning players with a lot of Varsity experience, I feel that if our pitching comes around we should compete for a sectional title” said Manwaring.  Section IV has had a lot of success and our league is one of the strongest in the State.”
