Tyler Hayslip will be in his first season as the Clinton-Massie baseball coach, replacing long-time coach Brian Camp.
The Falcons were 9-12 in Camp’s last season. Hayslip will be assisted by Austin Merkle, Andrew Ledley, Rusty Black, Tyler Merkle and Todd Hillman.
Clinton-Massie was American Division champion in 2019.
There are seven returning letterwinners with three of the starters in 2022.
Adam Frisch (.435 average) was first-team All-SBAAC. Second teamers were Tyler Keck and Gabe McDowell. Carson Van Hoose was given honorable mention. Keck and Van Hoose graduated.
Trenton Kendrick is a newcomer of note, Hayslip said.
Hayslip said Wyatt Creech has taken on a leadership role with the team, taking the group through non-mandatory workouts three days a week.
“This team has been putting in a lot of hard work in the offseason,” Hayslip said. “I hope all of the time and hardwork will pay off for the group that has been working hard.”
Hayslip said situational hitting must improve for the Falcons.
“If we do the little things right (we can contend in the SBAAC),” Hayslip said. “If we play mistake-free baseball and hit our spots on the mound, we will win some ball games.
“The goal is to always compete for a league championship and improve on our record from previous years.”
