The Red Devil baseball team is in the full swing of spring practices in preparation for the vigorous season. New faces are up and down the roster with incoming freshmen and transfers.

Pitching Coach Ethan Appleby looks to take a staff with a lot of new faces above and beyond what they achieved before. Appleby comes to the Red Devils staff with college playing experience at Emporia State, Iowa Western, and the University of Northern Colorado.

“I feel that we have a very strong pitching staff with a good group of sophomores to lead the way,” said returning pitcher Nate Postlethwait. “From top to bottom we can compete with anybody, and with our great team chemistry we should be able to compete well this year.”

Returning outfielder Brayden Whitchurch agreed.

“I believe we will have a lineup that will get the job done, no matter who we throw on the field. It’s going to be exciting,” said Whitchurch.

Inclement weather has kept the Red Devils from practicing outside and nixed their first two weekends of games, but lthey ook to start their season against Ellsworth Community College on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 23 and 24, with game times of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on both days.
