2018 Spring Team Preview: New Riegel Blue Jackets
Team Name: New Riegel Blue Jackets
Head Coach: Gregg Hughes
2017 Record: 21-6
Conference Record: SBC, River Division, 2nd
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 4/2
Coach Outlook: “After losing five of the nine starters to graduation, we will be looking for some underclassmen to fill in the holes. We have a great group that seems to be anxious to make the team as competitive as in past years.”
PBR Outlook: The loss of some talented players will be felt, but coach Gregg Hughes and the Blue Jackets young prospects are ready to make the mark in 2018. Don't be surprised if New Riegel is playing the best ball late in the season and makes a run in the tournament.
