Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (five)

Top players: C/P/IF Joseph Johnson (Jr.), OF/C Mitch Dolinar (Sr.), P/IF/C Mark Costolo (Sr.), IF/P Ryan Kennedy (So.)

Outlook: The Eagles bring back only five starters, but some potent bats in Costolo (.403), Dolinar (.373), Johnson (.369) and Kennedy (.353).

“We are looking to continue building the program with a good group of freshmen coming in to assist the upperclassmen with a competitive season,” Desch said. “I feel we will be competitive even though we lost some important players from last season.”
