Speed kills, right?
Pitching is key in baseball, but it doesn't hurt to be able to run. Under the direction of second-year head coach Mike Williams, John Cooper shattered their all-time steals record with 104. The previous record was 45. Let's just say the Dragons are aggressive and that style of play produced a 25-10 record and a fourth-place finish in the SPC.
Williams reloads again in 2020 with some quality talent. Pitcher Anthony Giannette (La Tech) comes over from Klein Cain to bolster the staff. The defense is solid as Jacob Rebrook (Pepperdine) and Tyler Douglas lock up the middle at shortstop and centerfield, respectively. '
Callum Burton (George Washington) holds down the hot corner. Antonio Pastrana will help on the mound, while Jake Peterson will give some pop to the lineup if he can return from injury.
