New Palmetto baseball coach optimistic (includes video story)

After a successful 2023 season, Miami Palmetto Senior High School brings a new coaching staff to the 2024 baseball season. 

The previous coach, Danny Smith, retired after almost 20 years of coaching and finished second in the 2023 Miami-Dade 7A District 16 Finals. 

Coach Wayne Hendricks has high expectations for this team and isn’t settling for anything less than winning at the state tournament. 

“We’re expecting these guys to step to that challenge,” said Hendricks.
