|Monterey baseball counting on seniors|
Monterey High baseball coach Eric Richard said he doesn't put a lot of stock in winning. But don't think for a second he's going to be real happy about losing.
"Nobody likes to win more than me," said Richard, who is in his first year as head baseball coach at Monterey. "But right now I just want our guys to go out and compete. As long as they come out with a positive attitude, improve in some aspect of the game every day and give 100 percent in every drill, then I will be happy."
Richard became the head baseball coach unexpectantly after longtime Wolf coach Hank Zizzi died of a heart attack last November.
"When you think about Monterey baseball, you think about 'Coach Z,'" Richard said. "I'm coming behind a legend. I am very humbled to take this position. You can't replace someone like that, not only his baseball knowledge, but the character and personality he had. I just am going to try and continue doing some of the thing he did when he was here. He did a great job."
Richard was just teaching at the school this school year before being pressed into service.
"Fortunately I have an experienced group coming back and a good corps of seniors," Richard said. "It's just going to take them getting used to me and me getting used to them."
The Wolves, who finished second in their district last year, defeated Castor in the first round of the playoffs before falling to Choudrant in the second round.
Richard returns a strong pitching staff, led by senior Trey King, who also hit .321 on the season.
"We're going to have a pretty good pitching staff just from what I am seeing," Richard said. "There's a lot of potential."
Seniors Billy Metcalf and Beau Shively return in the infield. Both will also see time on the mound, along with senior Jared Ensminger. Metcalf hit .327 last season.
Other seniors include catcher/infield Jon Lipsey, outfielder Brennan Russell, catcher infield Brian Calkins and outfielder Waylon Book.
Juniors are outfielder Taylor Campbell, infielder Clint Gandy, outfielders Austin Lipsey, Buddy Smith and Will Crouch.
Sophomores are infielders Joe Rogers, Cade Crum, Ross Lipsey, Aaron Adair, Jorge Gonzales and James Davis.
Sophomore outfielders are Auston Chandler, Ethan Cannon, Chance Cooper, Andrew Harp and Brett Burley.
Freshmen are Hunter Knapp, Tyler Trant, Nick Blake and Connor Hamilton.
