Summary: The Fighting Irish will open up against a team from our area for the first time since 2012, the Springfield Blue Devils. Only seven starters are back from a team that made it to a regional final last year. That means Greg Dempsey and the staff are spending more time in certain areas that wasn't necessary in camp a year ago.
