2018 Spring Team Preview: Richmond Edison Wildcats

Team Name: Richmond Edison Wildcats
Head Coach: Mike Collopy
Division: III
2017 Record: 22-5
Conference Record: OVAC/Buckeye 8 – Runner Up
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 4/5

2018 Team Strengths:

  • Leadership
  • Pitching
  • Defense
  • Offense

Coach Outlook: " We return our #1/3/5 pitchers from last year. We need to replace 2 OF positions and our Middle infield. We return 4 players that hit (#4/7/8/9) in the order from last year. We have capable replacements but they lack varsity experience.”

PBR Outlook: The Wildcats and coach Mike Collopy move from Division II to Division III in 2018 and have a solid squad, which should get better as the season moves on and be a team to watch come tournament time. When Tristan Haught is on the hill, they have a good chance to beat anyone.
