2022 Outlook: “The tigers are looking to build upon the success of last year’s team, but it won’t be easy.  They need to find a way to replace a group of seniors who brought the first league title since 2006.  The Tigers have a nucleus of experienced players coming back, but they won’t be able to sneak up on anyone this year.”
