The MinnDak Millersare pleased to announce their roster and schedule for the 2007 season.
MinnDak is lookingto improve upon its 4th Place finish at last year's ASA MajorNational Championship and a disappointing 18th place at the ISCWorld Tournament.
The Millers enter the season with four new players and revamped pitching staff from last year.
This year'spitching staff will be comprised of newcomers Travis Price and Ward Gosse, along with returnee Rick Lang, who was sidelined last season with an injury.
Chad and BJ Boom are the remaining newcomers and will add a pair of right-handed bats toMinnDak's predominately left-handed lineup.
MinnDak's schedule will once again see them play all of the top tournaments the Midwest has to offer.
With coaching commitments and a number of potential Team USA conflicts as well, MinnDak willin all likelihood not be at full strength until July.
Coach Lybeck showed his excitement about this years team saying, "I like the our improvements and I like our chances. If this teams chemistry comes together like I think it will, we will turn some heads."
