Massabesic Baseball

Spring sports are coming up soon and baseball is on the menu. Pre-season batting practices have already started. Fans are excited for this year's team. Hopefully they can improve from last year going 2-14 over 16 games. They missed the playoffs narrowly and hope to improve and get in this year. Last year, they were in a lot of very close games. They had many opportunities to win but couldn’t get it done. There weren’t many graduating seniors last year, so this year most of the team will be back with more experience and knowledge to help them win.

This team has a boatload of young talent in the freshman and sophomore classes. The freshmen that played up on varsity last year have more experience than most at this point in their high school careers. This will most definitely benefit them this year and in the years to come. The incoming freshman class will also be an asset to the program in upcoming years. They had a good year in eighth grade last year and look to improve. There is both skill while hitting and in the field. If these underclassmen continue to develop, Massabesic will be the team to beat in the future.
