The Gaels return a plethora of veteran arms in their pitching rotation. In fact, their top four pitchers from last year’s staff that had a team ERA of 2.58 return. St. Edmond started 3-0 last season, they did end up finishing over .500. However, bout with covid-19 derailed their momentum toward the tail of end of the regular season.
That’s St. Edmond Coach Mike Szalat’s comments on the covid issues from last season. The Gaels ended the 2020 season with a hard fought playoff loss at Ogden. Coach Szalat says they are taking lessons from that loss into this year.
St. Edmond’s quality pitching is a known factor after last season, but they did have struggles at the plate. the Gaels hit ,223 as a team last season. However, Szalat expects to see improvement at the plate.
