Goals for Season:

  1. Get better each day…. With the weather the way it is it will be important to work on a lot of things in the gym and prepare for everything without being out on the field. If we can mentally be prepared to play baseball then hopefully the guys returning to the team will be able to physically play baseball when its time.

  2. Compete, many times last year we made mistakes which pulled us out of games. We didn’t get timely hits and left a lot of opportunities out on the field. This year it’s our goal to show up and be competitive and leave it all on the field each day.

  3. Enjoy each day they get to be baseball players.
