Clinton-Massie lost a lot of innings from last season’s SBAAC American Division runnerup baseball team.

The Falcons were 11-10 in 2018 but graduated Max Murray, Ashdain Martin, Luke Richardson, Weston Trampler, Alec Thomas, Cam Collett and Keith Mineer.

Murray and Martin were first-team All-SBAAC all-stars.

But coach Brian Camp, assisted by Tyler Hayslip and JV coach Cliff Doyle, welcomes back a pair of SBAAC first teamers in Tyler Lewis and Seth Goodall.

Luke Chappie and Bryan Kennedy were both second teamers and join Spenser Branham and Corey May as returnees.

Camp said the Falcons are capable of contending for a league title as long as they “execute and fundamentally handle all the small parts of the game on a daily basis.”

Newcomers will have to fill many roles as Massie returns just one infielder and two outfielders from last season’s primary lineup.

Camp said picking a league favorite is difficult.

“This league will be competitive, with any given team having a chance to be the front-runner,” said Camp, who is in his fourth season at Massie and 15th overall coaching high school baseball.
