The 2018 Knights were atop the leaderboard in Home Runs (regular season) last year, as well as finishing fourth in slugging percentage (.403), fifth in runs scored (339), and being in the top 10 of average, on base percentage, and stolen bases. Knights outfielder Austin Earl hit a league leading 13 home runs beating out teammate Dalton Harum who finished second with 11.
