Head coach: Gary Weiss, third season
2015 record: 11-11 (9-5 Sunrise, fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (five)
Top players: SS Anthony Cornwall (Jr.), C Bo Redd (Sr.), P Koby Frei (Sr.)
Outlook: Seven lettermen return for the Pirates, who are hoping to contend for the Sunrise title.
Cornwall (.397, 10 doubles, 17 RBIs) and Redd (.321, 6 doubles, 8 RBIs) should be among the leaders on offense, and Frei (2-1, 2.50 ERA, 34.1 innings, 32 strikeouts) returns on the mound.
“The Pirates will rely heavily on returning lettermen this season,” Weiss said. “The underclassmen had a couple of successful junior varsity seasons and will be looked at to contribute as well.
“Moapa Valley expects to compete within the league for a top seed heading into the playoffs.”
