For the 2009 edition of Memphis baseball to be successful, they must be prepared to take on a list of unique challenges, meanwhile putting a tough 2008 season out of sight and out of mind.
“The main point that we’ve talked about as a staff is to keep this team focused and upbeat with two major hurdles to overcome,” said fifth-year head coach Daron Schoenrock. “One of them is to overcome the demons of last year and what we went through as a young team.

To accomplish these goals, the Tigers must find a way to elevate their play against strong C-USA opponents, with somewhat of another young team, and then overcome the thoughts of the struggles of the previous year.
