COACH RITSCHE ON ANTHONY:  “Charles was voted Most Outstanding Pitcher this past fall posting a 4-0 record to go along with one save and the RFL’s top earned run average of 0.95.  He surprised the dickens out of our coaching staff. Charles will log major innings for our pitching staff in the spring giving us a quality left-handed arm.  He’s a quiet kid but does everything you ask of him.  He can keep a mean scorebook in between starts as well.”
