They couldn’t have gotten any closer last year as the Buccaneer baseball team found themselves at Frawley stadium, in the State Championship game. While they fell 4-3, Milford had traveled further then almost anyone could have expected. Milford posted a 12-6 regular season record, primarily due to the solid starting pitching of Nick Grant and Georgie Michael. With that dynamic-duo, as well as other players that graduated from last year’s team, it will be up to Coach Nick Brannan to get his players to grow together during the upcoming season.

Brannan is optimistic that his young charges can have a successful season. “We will have a fairly young squad but I am confident that the guys can step up,” commented Brannan. One of the key factors will be the ability of the pitching staff to produce, and for that Brannan is hoping that senior Philip Berry, and sophomores Garrett Coverdale and Johnny Valdez can fill the roll on the mound. “We are looking forward to these guys showing what they are capable of, we hop that they cans step up and meet the challenge.” Brannan said.

At the plate Milford hopes that Valdez, along with senior Michael Sammons and sophomore Jason Parker, can provide some offense. “With those guys at the top of the order, it gives us a very strong chance to score runs.” said Brannan. Milford will be looking for leadership from seniors Philip Berry, Sammons and Parker, as well as sophomore Valdez. “These guys know how to play and understand the game very well,” added Brannan.

Talking about last season’s magical run, Brannan believes that it can be used as motivation for this year’s squad. “These guys have all seen what can happen when they work together,” said Brannan. “We know that if we play our best we are capable of good things.”

The Buccaneers host Laurel on Monday, March 25 and Cape Henlopen on Wednesday, March 27 to start the season.
