Coach Trager on his 2018 team:

“We have a young group of players that are going to be tested early in the year. We will see a number of players get opportunities in preparation to find the lineup that works for us. We have a talented, but inexperienced group of young players that will need to step up and fill voids. Toughness will be our biggest obstacle this year. We will face adversity this season and we will go through hard times with our young players; our seniors will need to step up and be examples of how to overcome adversity. If we can become tougher than our opponent, we will finish the season playing our best baseball.”
