The Bucs return nine players from last year’s inaugural season.
SCCBL all-stars Gerardo Ramirez, Kevin Riley and Miles Ryan are all back to build what they started into a playoff contender.
Riley was one of the standout offensive players in the entire league in 2014. He lead the team in batting average (.368), on base (.461) and slugging (483), while seemingly coming up with a big hit every single time the Bucs needed him to come through.
Ryan came on strong in the last month of the season en route to be named player of the week once. He finished with a .350 batting clip, .409 OBP and .400 SLG. He was also a stabilizing force behind home plate defensively.
Ramirez logged the most innings at 42. He finished 3-2 with a 3.43 ERA and 32 strikeouts.
Other returning standouts include Chris Sanchez, who won pitcher of the week once, Richie Chavez, Johnny Juarez, Anthony Seminaris, Michael Smith and Jack Spohn.
Some of the important new faces include Mark Brown, Hershel Gardner, Michael Rhea and Blake Vandegrift, all of whom attend Northeastern State, and Fullerton College ace Randall Ortiz.
