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.
The Buccaneers finished their season in style with a sweep of the High Desert Heat and finished in fourth place of the SCCBL.
Inland Valley (11-19-1, 5-11) triumphed 11-2 over High Desert (8-18, 4-10) on Saturday afternoon in Game 2 of the double dip at Victor Valley College.
The Bucs finished their final 15 games with a winning record of 8-6-1.
