Mustangs Announce 2018 Roster

ST. JOSEPH, MO.- The St. Joseph Mustangs have begun their title defense in 2018 with the completion of their roster.

This years team will see a number of returners from last season, as well as many new faces to the team.

Mustangs Manager Johnny Coy says the response he got from coaches around the country was astounding.

“I was actually really shocked at how many coaches and players reached out to me wanting an opportunity to play,” Coy said. “It made that decision hard, because we only have so many roster spots available. I think it’s just the culture that we’ve had. It’s something that Coach Johnson and the city of St. Joseph was able to build. We have a great reputation all throughout the country.”

That reputation helped Coy restock a roster that consisted of mostly Seniors last season.

“We had so many seniors last year,” Coy said. “I really enjoyed it, being my first year, going out and doing my own recruiting. Getting as many players as I could find that I thought would be a great addition to the city of St. Joe and the Mustangs organization. I kind of filled them in on the expectations of what it means to be a Mustang and a lot of the community work we do. Every kid was 100 percent in and really excited, so I feel like we’ve got a pretty good group of guys coming in. I’m really excited.”

The 2018 team will have plenty of expectations to live up to as they look to defend their MINK League Title. Despite many of the players joining the Mustangs for their first season, quite a few are from the area and familiar with the Mustangs organization.

“A lot of people from St. Joe are going to be familiar with these guys. People will want to come see these local guys and they’re all good players, so it’s a win-win for the Mustangs and for the city of St. Joe. We have some good Division 1 and Division 2 players that play for colleges far away, but their actual hometowns are pretty close so their families will be able to come watch them play.”

Local players on the 2018 roster include Patrick Dillon (Bishop LeBlond), Chaz Verduzco (Benton) and Preston Bailey (Savannah).

Notable contributors from last season returning include 3B Josh Lincoln, 2B Easton Fortuna and OF Brody Santilli.
