"Pitching and catching," he said. "It all comes down to pitching and catching. If we can pitch it and catch it, we will be fine.

"We have to find ways to score runs, but at the end of the day, it's all about pitching and catching."

Pettis is optimistic about the way the team is shaping up.

"We've got some girls that I'm very excited about," he said. "We've got Kristen Bufkin and Taylor Rolison pitching. And Megan Clark can come in and will be at catcher, which we are doing right now by committee.

"We've got good players. I think Kayla Kelch at shortstop is going to be great for us and Regan Sowell at third."

Molly Woodward also will see time at catcher once she joins the team when basketball season ends, Pettis said. Kelsie Dardon will play second base.

Gabby Thomas and Ashley Richbourg are two of six players battling for playing time in the outfield.
