The Veterans Memorial Eagles' baseball team is looking to make program history and crack the playoffs for the first time.

The Eagles have the core of their lineup back with seven returning starters in all. It's a group that while never having made the playoffs, has been extremely competitive in the monster District 30-5A, losing more than their fair share of one-run games over the last couple years.

Now with some experience and chemistry under their belt, the Vets players believe they've got a shot to go toe-to-toe with Moody, King, Carroll and the rest of the district.
