KSTP Sports spoke with head coach Jon Graff, and captains Sawyer Hoffman, Luke Walton, and Owen Schmidt of the Farmington high school baseball program.

Farmington was the runner-up for last year’s 4A championship, losing to Stillwater 8-1 at Target Field.

Graff touched on the record-setting tryout numbers, rebuilding after losing 16 seniors, and what potential he sees in the team this year.

Farmington is scheduled to open its season Apr. 5 at Rochester Mayo, although many fields still need a lot of work to be playable.

The high school baseball season is a sprint, with games starting whenever the fields allow and the season wrapping up with the state championship game in mid-June.
