Starters Returning: We only really return two starters in the field in Adam Riter at 3B and Ben Shoop in the OF.  Matt Bruno was a part time starter last year.  There is competition at all infield positions and outfield spots to be starters.  Our pitching will be key as we had young pitching last year that gained quite a bit of experience but is still fairly young.  Senior pitchers Dave Morris, Ryne Dietz, Colin Pytlak and Evan Kraus return along with underclassman Adam Riter, Josh McTigue, Jordan Prince and sophomore Josh Higgins.  The pitching staff will be key for us this year.   Bats to count on will be Georgia transfer Tom Evans, 3B Adam Riter and 2B Ryne Dietz.  Catcher Zach Mecca hopefully stays healthy!
