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.

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.
