2014 Shadow Ridge Baseball Capsule


Head coach: Frank Tousa, sixth season

2013 record: 30-5 (8-2 Northwest, first)

Returning lettermen (starters): Six (Four)

Top players: C Jordan Hand (Sr.), P/IF Travis Caskie (Sr.), IF Brady Hoskins (Sr.), IF Tyler Burton (Jr.), IF Francisco Robles (Sr.)

Outlook: The Mustangs had a banner regular season last year, but lost a handful of starters to graduation.

Three of the team’s top five pitchers and the top three in batting average all are gone.

But the Mustangs do return talent on the mound in Caskie (6-1, 2.02 ERA) and Burton (3-0, 1.34 ERA) and a big bat at the plate in Hoskins (.340, 4 HR, 30 RBIs).

“We hope to be competitive in our league and battle for a playoff spot,” Tousa said.
