Season Outlook

As the Cardinal Baseball Program enters it’s third season, progress continues to be steady. The experiences our players have gained over the past two years have proven to be very beneficial. With only one senior on the 2008 roster, we are still a young team. As we mature as a team, we expect to handle adversity better than we have in the past two seasons. Our physical skills, as well as, our knowledge as it pertains to college baseball, have greatly improved. We need to continue to develop consistent mental and emotional toughness.

The pitching staff returns and will once again be our team’s strength. To support our staff, we must be able to play solid defense and generate run support. Making the fundamental plays defensively coupled with timely hitting, will compliment the effort of our pitching.

Our coaching staff has done an outstanding job working with all our position players so as to continue to develop their skills and “ baseball IQ”. Individual improvement as well as “team chemistry” will be very important to the success of our team.

The 2008 schedule, once again, proves to be very challenging. Consistent play, remaining injury-free, and daily improvement will also be keys to our success. We accept the challenge and look forward to the 2008 season.
