Last year’s record: 6-14
Head coach: Gardy O’Flynn (11th season)
Captains: Henry Sacco Sr., C; Alex Amoroso, Sr., INF/P
Key Returnees: Josh Guertin, Sr., 3B; Kyle Barber, Sr., 1B; Ryan Law, Sr., OF/P
Strengths: Left-handed hitting. Both Guertin and Barber are returning starters that have grown and gained strength in the offseason. They could be a true matchup problem swinging with power from the southpaw’s side of the dish.
Concerns: Pitching depth. The Tigers are confident in Amoroso and Law on the hill and have a solid group of young arms. A few of them will be called on to fill out the rotation and bullpen duties — and they’ll need to be ready.
Coach’s Outlook: “We have a strong senior core that’s working hard. Our hitting should be better this year, and with the number of 2-1 and 1-0 games we last year, we could turn those around. We have 4-5 kids that can really drive the ball to the gaps. We should be competitive.”
Last year’s record: 3-14
Head coach: Doug Woodworth (28th season)
Captains: Sami Brouillette, Sr., P; Emily Sadoway, Sr., P; Jessica Spencer, Sr., IF.
Key Returnees: Carolyn Lynch, Jr., SS; Jill Lombard, Jr., 1B; Molly Mello, So., C, Meredith Kercher, So., OF.
Strengths: Depth. Woodworth said the Tigers have some good, young players that can play multiple positions.
Concerns: Offensive production and lack of power.
Coach’s Outlook: “We would like to get back into it and be competitive at .500 again. We’re also hoping to qualify for the tournament.”
Last year’s record: 4-12
