AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Southwestern baseball team is one day away from their season opener. The Hurricanes are coming off a 13-34 season in 2014.
Head coach Bryan McLain attributes the struggles to the youth in the dugout. This year, he says the baseball team has matured and had a great offseason.
McLain is in his 12th season as head coach of the Hurricanes. He will be looking towards the leadership of players like Thomasville native Devyn Newberry.
"We've been young, for the most part. the whole time I've been here," said Newberry, the senior outfielder. "People leave, and then we just keep basically filling in with young people but this year we finally got a little bit of age, and hopefully we can make it happen. Just trying to come out here and be better than last year. Try to make plays when they come to us. Try too put points on the board."
The Hurricanes head to Jacksonville Tuesday to play Trinity Baptist College.
