COACH CORBIN QUOTE - Stoney is an accomplished pitcher from an accomplished high school program. Although we have older, experienced depth on our pitching staff, I feel like Hayden will challenge for a relief role immediately. He has a quiet confidence that exists in most everything that he does. We love his demeanor and competitive spirit.
