Coach’s Note

Welcome to Charger Field!  We are excited for our 2017 season!  This year’s team features seven seniors, who have all been part of our program for four years.  Two year returning letter winners are Matt Kloss, Justin Walter, and Brett Wilson.  As well as, returning letter winners Bailey Joy, Brandon Melendez, Tryston Swartz, and Sam Wruble.  We appreciate their dedication and our hope is to make their senior year one to remember.  Our goal as a program is to play aggressive fundamentally sound baseball.  We hope you enjoy watching the Chargers compete one pitch at a time!

Scott Rost, Head Coach
