“Our pitching is going to have to come up big, our hitting is always been consistent and if we just pound the strike zone we will be fine,” Luke Zimmer 39ers pitcher said.

“We just got to play solid baseball and have good fundementals,” Michael Thomas 39ers third baseman said.

Velva won its opening game 3-2.
