2018 Spring Team Preview: Lakota West Firebirds

Team Name: Lakota West Firebirds
Head Coach: Greg Leurk
Division: I
2017 Record: 25-6
Conference Record: Greater Miami Conference, 15-3, 1st
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 3/1

Team Strengths: 

  • Defense
  • Speed
  • Baseball IQ
  • Leadership

Coach Outlook: “We have 10 players returning from last year's roster, which is half. Our team should be strong up the middle defensively. We return our number 2 starter from last year's Final Four team.”

PBR Outlook: A Final Four run a year ago has coach Greg Leurk and the Firebirds fired up for the prospects of the 2018 season. Returning half the roster, including a healthy Keegan Fish will have Lakota West in the running to make a push come tournament time.
