Coach Radcliffe on his 2018 team:

This season 2018 Morgan Park HS is expecting a very successful season. Last year, we our young team needed exposure and experience which we gained by attending out of station tournaments. In addition, a new pitch count rule went into effect. This change helped us develop pitchers that we would have NOT used right away. We are a strong athletic team, aggressive on the base path, and very solid defensively. The coaching staff is very excited about upcoming season and the players development for this year.”
