From the Register-Mail:
After quick glance at the 2009 stat sheet for Knox College baseball, one fact might jump out at you.
Just one returning Prairie Fire regular hit .250 or better last season.
That doesnâ€™t discourage Knox coach Jami Isaacson.
â€œOur goal hasnâ€™t changed,â€ said the Fire coach in his 10th year. â€œOur goal every year is to win the Midwest Conference and we think weâ€™re ready to do that.â€
Knox is just two years removed from its miracle late-season performance that grabbed an MWC title and NCAA Division III playoff spot. Despite an 8-19 record a year ago, the Fire were in the South Division hunt until the seasonâ€™s last weekend.
The majority of Knoxâ€™s roster returns from those experiences and thatâ€™s where the Fire hope they have an edge.
