Mumford Suns

Key Additions: J. LaFarnara

Key Losses:  J. Swan

The Mumford Suns come into this season looking to make a statement, as their postseason was cut short due to them not appearing at their playoff game a year ago.  Adam Pratt will have a strong season this year as he returns as the ace of the team.  He recorded 47 Ks in 21 innings pitched in 2014 and posted a 3-0 record.

The Suns return just about all of their players from the 2014 season, except Josh Swan.  They had the third best team-average in the league last year batting .492, which produced 126 runs.

Manager JT Williams made a huge move in the off-season by obtaining John LaFarnara.  LaFarnara won Rookie of the Year honors last season as a member of the Tenant Terrapins.  He recorded 24 Ks from the mound in 2014, and will take over the #2 spot in the pitching rotation behind Pratt.  He also can bring production to the plate as he hit .412.

Don’t sleep on this team or else you may get sunburnt!
