Chris Lewis returns for his tenth season of play and as one of the team’s best contact hitters. Expect Lewis to provide an offensive impact to each game he plays in. A solid utility player, Lewis can play nearly any position. You’ll typically find him at first base or playing some infield at second base if he’s not catching, but he’s also very capable of playing in the outfield. More often than not, the team relies on his batting contributions for clutch hitting and needed offense in any game scenario or tournament.
