CANFIELD BASEBALL COACH’S CORNER (EP 1) WITH GARY KNITTLE

The Canfield Cardinals were a ballclub that took the area by storm last season. With an undefeated regular season under their belt, Canfield brings back a plethora of talent.   With Josh Juliano returning, he led the team in batting average at .524 last season. The Cardinals also return their pitching leader, LHP and OSU commit, Landon Beidelschies.  Beidelschies, 0.41 ERA in 10 games, led a Canfield pitching staff that had a combined 1.06 ERA.  Pair A.J. Havrilla and Ryan Petro with this squad, and The Cardinals look to continue their domination.

Playing in a tough AAC and adding in a grueling non-conference schedule, Canfield will sharpen their teeth before the tournament. 

Ty and Anthony from Running Point sat down with Head Coach Gary Knittle to talk about the upcoming season, and what to expect this season.

HEADED HOME: CANFIELD CARDINALS BASEBALL PREVIEW

CANFIELD, OH – Head coach Gary Knittle took some time with us and spoke about the talent around Canfield this year. Coach expects good things, but reminded us that theres plenty of competing inside their own dugout. Players are still earning positions and starting roles. Speaking of starting roles the Cardinals have a really good pitching staff. Leading the way is Landon Beidelschies and Nate Shaw as a great 1-2 punch. Two guys committed to Division 1 programs. Nate Shaw is committed to Wright State and Landon Beidelschies is committed to Westpoint. With arms like these they are a coach’s dream. Younger players of note are Ben Slanker and A.J Havrilla.
