2015 Roncalli Rebel Varsity Baseball Team

2015 Baseball Preview

The Rebels baseball season should be very exciting. The team returns most of the roster that went 19-7 last year. Senior Tyler Schoettle returns after hitting .474 with 6 HR, and 26 RBI's. Junior shortstop and Missouri commit Jake Franklin returns after hitting .353. Robbie Strader (.385), Zach Lamping (.333), and Drew Naumovich (.353) all return after hitting over .300 last year. Catcher Cody Smith, outfielders Jake Hobson, Tyler Lucas and Casey Gore all return after seeing significant time. Junior outfielder Blake Chitwood returns after seeing limited time as a sophomore. The Rebels will be looking to fill a void left by senior 1st baseman and Indiana commit Pauly Milto, who will miss at least part of the season with a back injury. The pitching staff should be very impressive, as the Rebels return several arms from a team last year that posted a 1.94 ERA. Seniors Christian Beard, Bryce Bridgewater, Caleb Matthews (Kankakee commit), Gore and Naumovich all return. Beard, who will continue his career at Indiana, pitched 31.2 innings, 1.77 ERA and 21 strikeouts. Bridgewater, who will pitch at Wabash next year, pitched 18.2 innings with a 1.88 ERA. Naumovich logged 22.2 innings, 1.85 ERA, and 30 strikeouts. Gore pitched 27.2 innings with a 3.29 ERA. Juniors Sam Phillips, Lucas, Franklin, and Michael McAvene are back. McAvene, a Purdue commit, returns after pitching 44.2 innings, a 1.72 ERA, and 63 strikeouts. A couple underclassmen could help at some point this season. Sophomore infielder Taylor Faust and freshmen outfielder Nick Schnell could figure in. The Rebels home opener is March 30th vs. Lawrence Central.
