Coach Craig Rainey's 23rd season headquartered on the "Back 40" features four all-MIAA standouts, headlined by 2014 All-America junior shortstop Ryan Dorow (South Haven, Mich.), senior right-handed pitcher Jordan Frayer (New Boston, Mich./Huron HS), senior outfielder Jeff Gertley (Northville, Mich.), and junior designated hitter/first baseman Miccoy Drzewiecki (Toledo, Ohio/St. Francis DeSales).
Adrian will begin the season on Wednesday, March 2, at Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss, where the Bulldogs will also play Blackburn College on the 5th and 6th.
