Team Outlook/Coaches comment: “With only two regulars back from 2019 (Griffin Wheeler and Rose) lots of questions remain. Pitching depth should be a strength with as many as 10 players likely to see time on the hill. Also, the Pride has plenty of talent in the infield; the outfield is filled with questions. With the shortened pre-season the Pride will use a variety of lineups to find the mix heading into the play-offs.”
