Pee Dee Academy baseball gearing up

Mullins— The Pee Dee Academy baseball team, under the leadership of Head Coach Brian Davis, is gearing up for the new season and looking to improve on last season’s .500 record.

“Last year we were young so this season we are another year older,” says Davis. “We only lost two seniors so I think we have a good mix coming back. Seven of our nine starters are back so them playing a lot when they were young will help us out a lot this year, at least that is what we are feeling.

“I am pretty excited about where we are at.”

Among the team this year will be two seniors, two juniors… and a lot of sophomores and a freshman.

Seniors include Danny Barker and Connor Gasque. Juniors are Gabe Estes and Caleb Oakley.

The sophomores for Pee Dee Academy this season include Colton Caulder, Dylan Carter, Jack Hulon, Christopher Stepp, Cameron Weston, Lane Cardwell, and Reyn Watson. The lone freshmen is Coleby Sinclair.

Last season, Davis said, his then very young team was able to make the playoff and exceeded some expectations in the process.

“This year we are fully expecting to be above average for sure and back in playoffs and back in the mix again,” he explains. “Hopefully we can take another step forward.”

Davis said that the strength of his team right now is hard to pin down this early in the campaign but added that the team is returning a lot of the pitching from last year and also returning a lot of starters overall.

“Returning a lot of (pitching) is going to be key for us,” he says.

He added that he hopes that his team will be improved hitting this year compared to last season.

 “We were down a little offensively last year.”
