According to Coach Burns, Montverde baseball 2015-2016 season has a very talented and diverse group of MVA Highlight Baseball Players 2015-2016. Coach Burns recently told MVA Communications, “As with any team, you can have all the talent in the world, but it inevitably comes down to the chemistry of the team coming together. As a coaching staff we are very excited to help mold and develop all the players to contribute in their own way. We have players from several different countries, so there can develop certain challenges. But when you have the right players, along with good coaches that understand those challenges, and who can truly bring a great experience for all the players and coaches, things should then turn out great also. As the fall season begins we look forward to the team finding their chemistry.”
