The members of the 2019 LaGrange High baseball team will be introduced, as will Donnie Branch, who is returning as head coach.

The 2018 season was Georgia’s best during Stricklin’s five years at Georgia.

The Bulldogs finished with a 39-20 record, and they made it to the NCAA Super Regional before losing at home to the Duke Blue Devils.

One of Georgia’s players is LaGrange High graduate Logan Moody, who will be a pitcher this season after playing the outfielder during his previous years.
