2015 East Baseball Preview

2015 East Baseball Preview
Head Coach: Matthew Newshulz
2014 Record: 0-21

First-year head coach Matthew Newshulz takes over a program which has not seen much success in the win column but has gotten plenty of opportunities to gain experience over the past couple of years.

Senior Brandon Jackson returns after a strong junior campaign which saw #2 compile 4 extra base hits (3 doubles and a triple) as well as 10 runs and 12 stolen bases on offense. Jackson also led the Panthers on the mound by throwing 38.2 innings and striking out 55 batters while registering a 5.97 earned run average. Brandon’s classmate Jeremy Woodberry is back after leading the team in hitting (.314), base knocks (16) and stolen bases (13). Woodberry gave East another solid pitcher who threw for 30 innings last year.

Jalun Jones and Ali Mujahed both gave the Panthers hope for the future last year. The speedy Jones had 6 steals while tallying an on-base percentage of .407. Mujahed led the team in RBIs with 8 as he was able to reach base safely on 33% of his plate appearances.

East will begin their trek in the All-American Conference with their season opener at Campbell.
