|Monterey counting on youth|
After losing seven starters and returning a pitching staff that totaled two innings, Monterey baseball coach Eric Richard can only describe his team in one way.
"To say we're going to be young would be the understatement of the year," he said.
Monterey lost to Florien 8-7 in a Class B first round contest last year.
"I know we're going to struggle early, but I really feel this team will make more improvements from beginning of the year to the end of the year just because of the nature of the team," Richard said. "This is about as fun a group of kids that I have worked with in a long time. It's going to be crucial for us to get in as many games as we cam early and have our pitchers throw a lot of pitches and our batters see a lot of pitcher. This can be a year of a lot of firsts."
Senior Austin Lipsey is the lone pitcher with any kind of experience. Junior Ross Lipsey and sophomore Tyler Trant will also see time on the mound.
The battle for the catching position is still up for grabs.
The infield will consist of Austin Lipsey at third base, sophomore Nick Blake at shortstop, Ross Lipsey at second base and junior James Davis at first base.
In the outfield are junior Chance Cooper in center field, senior Taylor Campbell in left feield and junior Andrew Harp in right field.
"Our outfield is our strength, especially defensively," Richard said.
Richard said team chemistry will be important.
"We have to see who can player where and what combination will work," he said. "I'm excited about the season starting."
