Key Returning Players:

Connor Beahm – Senior, P/1B, 6-1, 51 IP, 50 SO, 2.33 ERA, .270 BA, .373 OBP, 1 HR, 18 RBI

“Connor looks to build off of a strong season on the mound last year. He has a solid bat and brings a great glove defensively to anchor our infield at first.”

Kaleb Eitner – Senior, SS, .274 BA, .329 OBP, 21 RBI

“Kaleb is a solid all around ball player. He brings a steady bat at the plate and glove in the field. Kaleb will be making a position change this season to upgrade our team defensively.”

Garrett Horvath – Senior, P/1B/DH, 34.1 IP, .282 BA, .491 OBP 1 HR, 11 RBI

“Garrett looks to build off of a strong performance on the mound in the league playoffs last season. Garrett will be a middle of the order bat looking to drive in runs.”

Cole Serfass – Junior, C/P, .321 BA, .418 OBP, 1 HR, 17 RBI, 24 R

“Cole broke out at the plate last season and looks to continue that success this year. He will be moving from shortstop to behind the dish to upgrade our team defensively.”

2022 Outlook: “Our team features a lot of experience with key players who played major roles last season. My major concern is that we lost all 3 starting outfielders from last season. It will be exciting to see who will make the most of their opportunities and settle into those spots as the season goes on. We have a bad taste in our mouths with how last season ended and look forward to competing for 7 innings each time we take the field.”
