2014 Alta-Aurelia Baseball Team Preview
FREE! The excitement level is getting higher and higher for the 2014 baseball season. Iowa Preps continues our team previews and takes an in-depth look at Alta-Aurelia in this article. See who they have returning and what our thoughts are on the team now!
With just two starters moving on from a team that won 19-games last summer, Alta-Aurelia is confident that they can make a run this time around on the diamond. Bringing back four players who hit above .300 in Jayden VanBerkum, Ross Friedrich, Bryce Radke, and Josh McCormick will certainly help their chances to put runs on the scoreboard. Throw in a busy off-season of training and each should make a run at postseason honors when everything is said and done. Experience, speed, and depth in the pitching staff are three areas that this group will rely on to be successful. The pieces are there if this group can come together and get the job done.
Alex Stephan--.297 catcher--1st team all conference-2nd team all-district
Jayden Van Berkum--.364 1st base --2014
Other Returning Varsity Players
Jeremiah Ruby Pitcher,outfield,--2015--(missed last season with injury)
Team Speed and experience. We played several young players last season and they should be much more comfortable at the varsity level this season. Pitching depth. We are fortunate to have good pitching depth in every class. We have some nice young arms with a lot of upside potential.
Hitting was our weakness last season but we have matured greatly since last season. Catcher will be a question mark we need to fill but Jordan Wendel and Bryce Radke should be able to take over where Alex Stephan left off behind the plate.
