Phoenixville baseball 2011 season preview

2010 Record: 11-7 PAC-10; 12-10 overall

Postseason: Lost 1-0 to eventual champion Owen J. Roberts in the semifinals of the PAC-10 Final Four; lost to Upper Moreland 2-0 in first round of districts

Head coach: Jack Sturgeon, 13th season

Key losses: Had 10 seniors graduate from last year’s squad (including seven starters) along with the whole pitching staff.

Key Returnees:(all seniors)- Dillon Fina P/C/OF ,Mike Jones P/1B, Andy Kaye RF, Thomas Romano CF, Tony Sierzega 2B, Jon Wheel 3B

Coach’s comments:  “The first part of the season we’ll be meshing our varsity together and hopefully having players step up and grab starting spots. It will be crucial that the new pitching staff helps to keep us in games early on until we find our offensive identity.”

Pac-10 team to beat:  Spring-Ford will be strong throughout their lineup but I have also heard that Pope John Paul is strong and never count out Greg Gilbert and the Wildcats.
