RICHLAND, Wash. -- A warm day like Friday will make you think about baseball. Local schools are getting ready. Richland Bombers baseball is among the best.

Last season they finished third in the 4A state tournament. Two years ago, the Bombers won the whole thing. This season they plan to have a solid pitching staff, plus a bunch of fast guys at the plate. The team fully expects to be a major player in 2012 despite losing some key pieces.

"This team is equally as good, but we've got to go out and prove it. You know we gotta prove it. Nothing is taken for granted but if we are going to play to our potential, this team will definitely be as good as last years team," said head coach Ben Jacobs, who enters his 24th season as head coach.

"This year we have way better team chemistry then last year. I'm not trying to harp on last year, but this year the team chemistry is way better. Hopefully that will help us a lot, and we still have some good returners coming back," said Corey Morris, a second team all-state second baseman in 2011.
