Head coach: Jay Guest, first season
2013 record: 30-6 (8-2 Northwest, second)
Returning lettermen (starters): Six (two)
Top players: P Gabe Gonzalez (Sr.), OF Kaid Urban (Sr.), SS Nick Quintana (So.), OF/P Kevin Johns (Sr.), P/3B Sam Pastrone (Jr.), 1B/3B Sid Cutting (Sr.)
Outlook: Guest takes over a squad that lost 12 players to graduation.
Urban, who hit .398, was a second-team All-Northwest League selection last year. Pastrone hit .344 and was 4-0 with a 1.57 ERA. Quintana belted four home runs.
“We are a young team with little varsity experience,” Guest said. “If we learn to play our style of baseball, throw strikes and play defense, we might be OK. We are not really physical, so it will be very important that we are able to execute our offense and limit mistakes.”
