The BSM baseball team has faced many changes since last year, but they have high hopes for their upcoming season.

With lofty goals on their minds, the team has been practicing hard since January. “We started captains practices back in January, so we have spent a lot of time bonding and getting our work in,” senior captain Tino Fialo said.

The team has lost a lot of good players since last season and they really only have a few returning starters this year. “It’s hard losing a lot of solid players like Derek Drees, Matt Brooks, and Alex Houlihan who all went on to play college baseball,” Fialo said.

Although the team has lost a lot of starters, they are excited about the young talent that they have joining the program. Along with the new talent, the team has also acquired a new coaching staff. “This year we have all new coaches and the team has taken a strong liking to them; they know what the team wants and they all know how to coach us towards our goal of success,” senior captain Henry Wolfe said.

Last season the team lost in the Section Final, so this year they are all hoping to take the extra step of making it to the State Tournament. “Our goal is to get to State. Last year we lost to the undefeated State Champions in the Section Final. We definitely should have won the game, but they ended up getting the best of us in extra innings, so this year we all have the same goal of getting to the State Tournament,” Wolfe said.

The team hopes their hard work and good team chemistry will help them achieve their goals this year, and both senior captains are excited for the weather to warm up so the team can get back out on the field and work towards their goals.
