Coach Fitz-Gerald: "Stoneman Douglas will be extremely experienced as they return 7 offensive players and are deep on the mound with lots of depth including returning RHP Gavin Gargiulo and Jayden Dubanewicz. The infield remains intact which fielded .984 last spring and Max Preps all Americans in Devin Fitz-Gerald and Rylan Lujo along with Niko Benestad and Erick Torres. The outfield will be led by Alex Rodriguez in CF and Bennett Gary. "
