players to watch
Mansfield Legacy returns six hitters from 2016, including three All-District players. The Broncos have a strong core of infielders led by senior shortstop Riley Blanton who was 2nd Team All-District. Alongside Blanton are junior second baseman Ryan Hill and junior third baseman David Vargas (1st Team All District). Covering ground in the center field will be senior Kendall Catalon. Catalon, a 1st Team All District player last year, hit .356. Senior Grant Moore, a utility player, hit six home runs last year and will provide some added power to an already solid line-up.
Although Legacy only returns one starting pitcher from last years team, senior Kendall Catalon will add stability in a rotation that will look to several juniors and one senior to fill in the gaps.
