Last year: 16-8
Class 4A, District 6
Coach: John Shouse, first year.
Assistants: Roger Rigaeu.
Classification: Class 4A, District 6.
Stadium: Chamberlain Field, 9401 North Blvd. (corner of North and Busch Boulevard).
Record: 16-8. Lost in the district tournament.
Key players: John Kaufman (pitcher), Ryan Mason (third base), Kenny Edmondson (catcher), Darren Hamerick (first base), John Tarmargo (shortstop), Grant Nations (second base), Erik Mirza (centerfield), Matt Chambers (pitcher).
Strengths: The Chiefs have five pure power hitters returning. Mix in a couple of good contact hitters, and Chamberlain should score plenty of runs.
Weaknesses: Beyond Kaufman and Chambers, Chamberlain's staff has very little depth.
Outlook: Chamberlain is considered one of the preseason favorites this year. A powerful lineup and several returning position players leave a bright horizon for the Chiefs.
