The Southeast Lauderdale Tiger Baseball team will have a new head coach in Reggie Richardson for the 2002 campaign.
Richardson will take over where Larry Ethridge left off after his retirement last year. Dwane Taylor Jr. will be assisting Richardson in his inaugural season.
The Tigers lost seven starters from last year's Division 5-3A District runner-up team.
The Tigers have Michael Anderson coming back behind the plate, while Jay Butler will move from the out field to shortstop for the upcoming season.
The ace on the hill for the Tigers will be senior Jeff Linton. Also seeing action on the mound will be Phillip Butler.
The Tigers will look for big things from Butler at the plate.
The Tigers will look to their seniors for leadership this year.
The Tigers will have their first pitch of 2002 thrown Saturday at 10 a.m. at John Moss Field, when they play Northeast Lauderdale. The Tigers will play Clarkdale after playing NEL.
