Press Release: Launch announce 23-man roster

The Florida Launch roster has been reduced to 23 players ahead of the Supplemental Draft that will take place on Friday, Dec. 8.

The latest roster, listed below, features some new Launch players but also marks the return of several team veterans. All but three players – Kevin Reisman, Brian von Bargen, and Michael Tagliaferri – appeared in a game for the Launch in 2017.

Reisman was acquired last Friday via trade with the Ohio Machine in exchange for a fourth round pick in the upcoming supplemental rounds.

Chazz Woodson, a twelve-year MLL veteran, is a notable name not on the 23-man roster as he announced his intention to retire last month.

The Supplemental Draft will give the Launch a chance to continue reworking the roster during the offseason. For live updates of the draft and breaking news, stay tuned to
