Trinity Baseball – based at Thurman Hutchins Park

Head Coach:  Rick Arnold ‘86  (3rd season)

2016 finish:  29-6, District Champion, 1st round Region loss to Male

Returning Starters:

Brandon Pfaadt RHP/3B, Senior; Matthew Higgins OF, Senior; Brody Heil LHP/OF, Senior; Clayton Mehlbauer SS/3B Senior; Price Adams RHP, Senior; Mike Blair 1B/OF/DH, Senior; Ben Metzinger C/SS/2B, Junior; AJ Arnold OF/1B/C, Junior

Season Outlook:

Trinity returns several starters and lots of experience from last year’s squad. Challenges for this year will be to replace our #1 starting pitcher, along with our middle infielders and two of our starting outfielders. The pitching staff will be anchored by 3 experienced and very talented seniors in Brandon Pfaadt, Brody Heil and Price Adams.  Together, they combined to win 19 games last year and had a 1.52 ERA. Several juniors along with a couple sophomores and/or freshman will compete for innings as well.

The Rocks should be explosive offensively with leading hitter, Matthew Higgins, back for his senior season. Seniors Clayton Mehlbauer and Mike Blair, along with returning juniors Ben Metzinger and AJ Arnold, and newcomers Hunter David, Dillon Byerly, Jared Bryant and several others provide confidence in our offense. The players are pushing each other really hard in the cage and on the field during off season workouts and have improved in every aspect of the game.

Coach Arnold believes pitching and defense are still the key at the high school level and feels confident his team is up to the challenge. The team has worked really hard all year in the classroom, during workouts and in the in the weight room. The 2017 season holds much promise for the Baseball Rocks.
