The Trumbull Eagles baseball team is looking forward to another strong season. After winning the 2012 FCIAC Championship last year against Greenwich 7-1, sadly their season ended in the first round of state playoffs against Stamford in a 4-3 loss.

“We have something to prove this year and to live up to expectations,” said senior Matt VonSchleusingen, second baseman.

Trumbull will have ten returning players from last year’s team, which will definitely help them keep up their winning ways.

Last year’s success was somewhat of a surprise considering that the previous year they managed to go 11-13. So the question is, will they be able to keep up their success from last year?

When asked what the team must do to remain successful, VonSchleusingen said, “Have the same mentality as last year and keep working hard for future goals. Don’t focus on the past, though we were very successful.”

Coach Phil Pacelli will have to replace nine players who graduated last year. The Eagles began the 2013 season on April 3rd at Masuk, and their home opener was on April 8th against New Canaan. Make sure you come out to support the team and their attempt to repeat as FCIAC Champions and hopefully State Champion!
