Last year: 12-5 Class 2A, District 11
Coach: Ray Roderick, fourth year.
Assistants: Jack Debee, Mark Debee.
Classification: Class 2A, District 11.
Stadium: Carson Field, 4811 Kelly Road.
Record: 12-5, lost in first round of district tournament to Lakeland-Santa Fe Catholic.
Key players: Michael Muroff (pitcher/second base), Robbie Hall (outfield), Todd Aidman (pitcher/infield/outfield), Andres Prida (catcher), Kadar Hamilton (centerfield).
Strengths: The Buccaneers have a solid hitting team that will score runs.
Weaknesses: Berkeley has just four returning starters and will start three freshmen and two sophomores. After Muroff and Aidman, the Bucs lack a proven starting pitcher.
Outlook: Berkeley begins its first season in Class 2A, but retains a largely 1A Bay Conference schedule. Roderick believes his team can improve on last year's record despite its youth.
