2021 Baseball Roster
The Flying Dutchmen roster consists of 10 seniors, 10 juniors, six sophomores and 11 freshmen. There are seven starters returning.
"We have a veteran group. We always look to pitching and defense. Positionally. we have six returning starters and (junior) Spencer Cable is a transfer from Central Michigan. He's a Hudsonville product who has come in and really fits into our program very nicely. . . I think we're very talented, quite possibly as talented as we've been in my 28 years. Now, we have to determine if we're any good — and I mean that tongue in cheek. I think we're good, but it's still about going out on the field and performing." -- Head Coach Stu Fritz
