Butler softball team looking to surprise teams this season

Written by Nick Tolomeo on .

With so many rain delays to start the season and with standings arranged alphabetically while everyone is 0-0, Butler is at the top of the heap in Class AAAA Section 3 so far. Last season with games actually played Butler was second to last but third-year coach Dan Hindman thinks his team can stay near the top, where it belongs alphabetically.

To do so, the Golden Hurricane will have to overcome youth.

Hindman has one freshman starter, two sophomore starters and two junior starters. His top three reserve players are either freshmen or sophomores.

“We are young,” Hindman conceded. “But we are talented. We will surprise teams this year.”
