DuBois Sluggers Shaping Up for Spring Season

DuBOIS – Penn State DuBois' head baseball coach, Tom Calliari, has announced the roster for spring of 2017, which he expects to be another winning season. The team is riding a high from last year, when they ended their season by taking Fifth Place in the United States Collegiate Athletics Association (USCAA) Small College World Series in Great Falls, New York. This was achieved by the first baseball team Penn State DuBois had put on the field since 1993, when the program was eliminated due to budget issues at that time.
"Our expectations are very high going into the season and each player knows that we have to take one game at a time, and take care of the little things in order for us to achieve our lofty goals," Calliari said.

The goals Calliari has in mind include another trip to the Small College World Series, which he hopes his team will be champions of this time around. He said he's confident his players will face the pressure of last year's success and work for more.

"We are taking one game pitch at a time. However, we are going to embrace being the target. When you're the target, it means you're the team to beat. We are everyone's benchmark, so we have to match the level of intensity of our opponents," the coach said. "We need to prepare knowing that we are getting everyone's best shot. I'm very proud of the work everyone has put into this and hope the community comes out to watch us. They should be proud to know they have a legitimate college baseball program they can get behind and support."
