Sioux City, IA - There are only seven players from last season's roster in camp this spring, but unfamiliarity isn't always a bad thing.
The offseason acquisitions and recruiting has brought in a sense of change, and with that change brings hope and optimism.
"Last year I think the main problem was chemistry. This year guys have been in the locker room getting to know other guys on a more personal level." Outfielder Peter Barrows said.
"So far after day one, I see a lot of chemistry, a lot of excitement, and a lot of passion. And when you start with those things you can build a ball club." Manager Stand Cliburn said.
The Explorers will have four exhibition games before their home opener at Lewis & Clark Park on May 16th against Sioux Falls.
