Head coach: Mike Hubel, 13th season
2014 record: 21-10 (7-3 Southwest, third)
Returning lettermen (starters): Nine (seven)
Top players: SS Niko Decolati (Sr.), 1B/P Tyler Giovinco (Sr.), P/UTL Larry Quaney (Sr.), UTL/P Adam Mitchell (Sr.), 3B Trevor Lippard (Sr.), P Todd Danzeisen (Sr.)
Outlook: Decolati (.414, 8 HR, 29 RBIs), Mitchell (.408, 2 HR, 38 RBIs), Lippard (.436, 19 RBIs) and Giovinco (.362, 17 RBIs) are back to lead the offense.
Quaney (5-2, 2.59 ERA, 56.2 innings, 70 strikeouts) and Giovinco (3-3, 2.37 ERA, 38.1 IP, 43 K) should be among the leaders on the mound.
“We bring back seven every day starters and three of our top pitchers from 2014,” Hubel said. “We look to be competitive with a good mix of experience and youth. We will add three freshmen to the team and hope they can contribute on a daily basis.”
