The players say their roster is an advantage, not a disadvantage. They can play underdog, but also play as a team, instead of focusing on their own at bats in preparation for high pressure college seasons.
said Bullfrogs co owner and general manager Liz Kern.
The small school make up of the team was not entirely on purpose. The Bullfrogs new ownership group took over the team, and installed Handlesman as manager, in late November of 2013. Most teams have their rosters somewhat set by then, so the team Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Off White
