Tampa Catholic Crusaders

Last year: 9-16 Class 2A, District 11

Coach: Robert Rogers, first year.

Assistants: Jorge Tamargo, Lenny Guida.

Classification: Class 2A, District 11.

Nickname: Crusaders.

Stadium: On campus, 4630 N Rome Ave.

Record: 9-16, lost in district semifinal game to Sarasota-Cardinal Mooney.

Key players: Ruben Garcia (catcher), Jason Hall (designated hitter/catcher), Scott Boyd (third base), Pablo Palacio (shortstop).

Strengths: Solid hitting and above-average team speed should provide offensive consistency. The Crusaders also have a sound defense.

Weaknesses: An inexperienced pitching staff includes two freshmen, four sophomores, three juniors and no seniors.

Outlook: The pitching must solidify for the Crusaders to approach a winning record. Rogers brings recent success to TC from 3A Robinson. A schedule with just one game against a county team will be less grueling.
