2019 Spring Team Preview: Massillon Washington Tigers

Team Name: Massillon Washington Tigers
Head Coach: Spike Ridgley
Division: I
2018 Record: 20-5
Conference Record: Independent
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 3/3

2019 Team Strengths:

  • Pitching
  • Talented Youth
  • Team Speed

Coach Outlook: "We have the chance to have some very top end arms, an inexperienced lineup early on with good talent, and an opportunity with experience throughout the year to be pretty good."

PBR Outlook: The Tigers have one of the top rotations in the state and should be one of the top teams in NE Ohio and the state in D-I. Look for the Tigers and coach Spike Ridley to make a run come tournament time.
