Any Additional Information: We return six starters who all contributed last season.  We return our ace 1st all-star Lucas Marsh.  The key to the season will be developing a pitching staff to go with Lucas.  We are solid in the middle of the field with Braylon Wyatt catching.  Lucas Marsh, Hunter Smith, Caedon Wyatt splitting time at shortstop and second base.  Logan Grinols is one of the best defensive center fielders we have had at ECS.  So defensively we should be solid.  Offense will be led by Lucas Marsh and Hunter Smith.  If we can develop a pitching staff and improve offensively as the season progresses we hope to be in mix in class D at the end of the season.
