Coach McDaniel on his 2018 team:

“The Bull Dogs are coming off the school’s first final four appearance in program history, and will be replacing 7 senior starters. While they will look to the youth of the program to fill some starting spots, they do return 2 everyday starters with plenty of experience in 2018 SS Tyler Finke & 2020 2B/CF Grant Trinkle. The pitching staff will be the strength of the program this season led by 2019 & 2020 RHP’s & IU commits Parker Maddox & Casper Clark, 2019 RHP Jakob Meyer & 2018 RHP Jake Petrusky round out the best pitching staff that the program has had in the last 6 years.”
