Season outlook: Graduation left the Ramblers with a lot of holes to fill last year and the result was a rare drop from contention. With everyone back this season, they should be back battling for a playoff spot and maybe even a home game in the tournament. The lineup should be solid top to bottom. Steele’s season is in question with a knee injury, but they will be strong in the infield. The pitching staff has plenty of experience. With the new pitch count rules and Fortin’s long-standing preference to limit his starters to one start per week, everyone should get plenty of more opportunities.
