Memorial Chargers Baseball


Coach’s Note

Welcome to Charger Field!  The 2018 team features eight seniors, who have all been part of our program for four years.   This group is led by two year letter winners Braden Baer, Nolan Grose, and Jordan Siddons.  The rest of the senior class includes Sean Gordon, Bradley Melendez, Dylan Pressler, Brandon Swank, and Wheaton Webb.  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
