The Canvassers open their summer season title defense with a significantly different roster than 12 months ago. Gone is shutdown pitcher Tony "Apples" Morin, who signed a significantly larger contract to take his talents to San Francisco. Morin pitched 80 of the 85.5 innings that season, earning a 0.37 ERA and striking out 46% of the batters he faced to go along with 4 post season shutouts. But it should be noted that no one has written a scathing letter accusing him of selling out his old team, so there's that.

Also hopefully missing this year is Spencer Howard's early season slump, where he's been known to go 1-for-15 in the first 3 weeks of the summer season. He's continuing to adjust his muscle memory from the bad habits developed in college baseball to the rigors of weekend wiffleball. Given his growth in his first three seasons, a .600/1.400/2.000 monster season is not out of the question.

Literally wearing Morin's shoes for this season is Matt Gagnon, on loan from the Moose Knuckles. When he's not being ejected, Matt is a top pitcher with a sub-2.00 ERA and over 40% strikeout rate. Slotted in the right spot in the batting order, Matt could get to double digits in Rs and RBIs, but if he pitches well, no one will care about his hitting.

All-time hits leader Matt Dreyfus suits up for his first summer campaign and second season overall as a Canvasser. If he can return to his .400 lifetime average and throw in another perfect-game-in-relief, the Canvassers will be well on the way to the playoffs. He's also the best wearer of sunglasses on the team, a crucial skill with loads of 12:30 starts this year.

Sean Hedershot saved the majority of his hits and all of his RBI's for the post season last fall and plans to do the same this season, sometimes by not even attending regular season games. Basically, he's the Allen Iverson of the Potomac Wiffleball League. Practice?!? We talking about practice?!?

Kris "Debbie Gibson" Garcia is back for his 37th year of wiffle ball. He's the straw that stirs the drink, the oil that greases the engine, and the guy that jumps over the fence/catches the ball/throws it back in before he lands. He also has the cutest family on the team, which shouldn't count for anything but does. The crafty lefty is likely to be used this year as the starting outfielder, a match-up reliever and well-timed power hitter. Any ball he hits in play and not over the fence will likely result in Garcia ending up at second, or third or home if you keep trying to hit him with the ball.

Rounding out the squad, although somewhat less roundingly than before, manager-emeritus Pete Hackeman has returned from the dead (technically Las Vegas) to fill out the line-up card, offer encouragement, and hit home runs after/while eating a Choco Taco. He's slower than he looks and utilizes a less-than-graceful avoidance strategy when being pegged (inspired by the elementary school posters for Stop, Drop & Roll). The stats say he hit .481 with a 1.037 slugging percentage in 7 games last season, but no one remembers him actually doing that well.

The Canvassers will look to add a league record 7th championship star to their logo this season, if only to see where it would fit in the crest.
