Arbor View 2013 Baseball Capsule


Head coach: Chris Martinez, fourth season

2012 record: 32-6 (14-2 Northwest)

Returning lettermen (starters): 12 (seven)

Top players: P/UT Evan McMahan (Sr.), P/1B Ryan Chen (Sr.), OF P.J. Gonzalez (Sr.), OF Nate Stepna (Sr.)

Outlook: The Aggies return 12 lettermen from a team that advanced to the Sunset Region title game last year.

University of San Diego recruit McMahan (6-2, 1.45 ERA; .435, 50 hits) is back to anchor the pitching staff, and Chen (.434, 7 HRs, 15 doubles), Gonzalez (.376) and Stepna (.379, 12 steals) should help the Aggies provide plenty of offense.

"This is the deepest squad I have had here in four years," Martinez said. "We are looking at back into the playoffs."
