Head coach: Johnny Montanez
Who did the team lose from last year's squad?
Who are key returning players?
Seniors: Justin Cedeno, Fraser, Mills, Nick Kono and Chris Hart. Key senior additions are Travis Buck and Alley Coopersmith. Juniors: Bradley Wilpon, Will O'Brien and Ted Maynard. Key junior additions are Evan Jonokuchi and David Robbins. Sophomore: Billy O'Malley. New to the team are four great freshmen: Ryan Popp, Michael Marzonie, Connor Redahan and Wilson Salomon.
Who will need to have an impact season for the team to be successful?
Wilpon and O'Brien will have to be at their best throughout the 2013 season. Their success on the mound will determine how well we do as a team this year.
Cedeno, Hardin, Mills, Fraser and O'Malley will have to lead us offensively. Each of these players has been recognized for their 2012 campaign. If we are to repeat our success, they will have to lead us offensively. It goes without saying that the final piece will be how we play defensively. We must take pride in our defense this season. If we do, we should meet our goals at the end of the year.
What are the team's strengths/weaknesses?
Our greatest strength is returning 11 players, seven of whom have been with the team for three years. We have a solid pitching staff led by Wilpon and O'Brien. Mills, Kono, Maynard, Redahan, Marzonie and Popp make our pitching rotation extremely deep. Finally, we are very sound defensively led by Fraser in center field.
Every game in our league is key, but particularly making sure we beat the teams we should beat and not allowing a game to get away from us. Our league rivals are Hopkins and Rye, our first two league opponents this season.
