Junior Nick Vasic, freshman Joey Scaffidi and sophomores Tyler Samson and Drew Spadaro are among the new faces who could play an important role for the young Lions.

"As a new coach, I am bringing a new philosophy and excitement to New Berlin Eisenhower baseball," Vahovick said. "I expect this season's varsity team to be competitive.

"I see our middle infield defense and starting pitching to be our strengths. We are looking to improve on our approach at the plate throughout the season."

The Lions host non-conference opponent Brookfield East in an 11 a.m. doubleheader on Saturday to open the season.
