Two games with JL Mann 

STARTERS RETURNING: 6          

RETURNING PITCHERS: 7           

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
Strengths of this team will be that they are now experienced.  Last year had very little experience but after only graduating 2 starters this past year they will have almost everyone back.  With these returners not only in the lineup but also the pitching depth, the Warriors are looking to make a run to the playoffs.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
I am excited to see how much we have grown from being a young and inexperienced team last year.  Our guys have been working hard and I am eager to see them win.
