Jeff LaVolpicelo, SS/2B/P: SS and top of the order hitter who always hits for average and finds a way to get on base and score. Very good all-around player with high baseball IQ.

Dylan Lawrence, C/OF/P: Tough, smart catcher with great feel for the game.  Disciplined hitter with excellent instincts on the base paths.

Cole Mullen, 3B/SS/P: Great pitcher with elite velocity and ability to keep hitters off balance. Middle of the order hitter with dangerous power.

Nick Ottaviani, C/3B/P: Left handed power hitter. Versatile fielder is a catcher, corner infielder and pitcher. Brings energy to the team.
