Adam Doolittle is the starting second baseman and a huge influence on the field. By being such a strong fielder he holds the middle infield together.
Josh King was a powerful relief pitcher until he injured himself. He became a leader on the team after this and was a solid designated hitter.
Sam Marteka is currently one of the four captains this year. He is a strong starting pitcher and left fielder. He also brings the most energy to the team and always keeps the morale up.
Nate McDonald is also one of the four captains this year. He has had multiple strong outings and carried the team to numerous wins. On the offensive side he is also a very successful hitter.
Chris Mormile is in the pitching rotation and has had good success in getting out of hard situations.
Ben Murphy is one of the strongest batters on this team and a very successful first baseman. He also brings a lot of enthusiasm to every game.
Brendan Sirois used to play second and third base, but he wasn't able to compete to his full capabilities due to an injury. He played a crucial role in the lineup as a designated hitter.
