Oak Hill Academy head baseball coach Marion Bratton knows that he has a good group of kids on his roster. He also knows that the 2011 team is very young still.
Armed with one senior and one junior, the Raiders are in the middle of a common cycle in high school sports. This yearâ€™s group is the foundation, and a solid one at that, for what Bratton believes are great things to come in the next couple of years.
