Thatcher will have tons of varsity experience as most of the players played varsity as freshman or sophomores and only losing one senior from last year's team. Look for good team chemistry and great play out of this team.
the rest of the east is stacked because morenci lost one player also, bisbee lost 2 starters but get there ace back, willcox lost probably the the 2 best pitchers in the state imo but get a lot of experience back, benson lost joey joy and goodman but they still have their ace as well, and tombstone lost their first baseman but get mcmurtrie back. so pretty much anything can happen this year.
Wow, I think I have changed my opinion on which region will be the strongest this year. The East will be stacked, wow. Even with McMurtie, Tombstone is still WAY questionable. But the rest looks to be a dog fight this year.
Tombstone may also get Valenzuela back. He started his sophomore year and will give them an additional middle infielder and could be there #1 pitcher. I don't know if he will come out or not. I thought he might be out for basketball and that did not materialize. Even without Valenzuela they will be much better then last year.
Thatcher is a good team, but you have to put Morenci at the top of the list to win state. Morenci lost only 2 Senior form last year team and have still have alot of experinence left on their team. Remember MORENCI!!!!!!
No, we dont have to put Morenci at the TOP of the list to win state. Sure they return a lot...but where is their pitching? They will havesome good pitchers but nobody will be a stand out.
And if you are going to claim Morenci being the top team to win state,give good reasons why instead of saying that they only lost 2 seniors and they return experience...there are many other teams in the same boat. Thatcher lost one senior and get Romney back from being out last season.
Is there anything else you can give us on Morenci that is solid to say they are the top team to win state?
Didn't they say that Thather lost one player from last year, Morenci will have good pitching and good hitting, Romney is a good football player and I think that football is his strong sport, but I think baseball is his weakest sport. Morenci will do well this year so you guys believe what you want to about Morenci, they will be their for state.
