As the warmth of springtime comes so does the beginning of the BSM boys’ varsity baseball season. The team is lead by five captains: junior Zach Carden, and seniors Matthew Murnane, Dylan Drees, Matthew Hansberry, and Mason James. All five captains are excited to get the season rolling.

The boys’ baseball team has been preparing hard since the previous summer and all of this winter to better themselves for success. Every player on the team has been hitting, throwing, and fielding since last season. Aside from practicing the basics all year, some guys have been preparing in other ways. Junior Blake Mahmood has been working all year long, trying to improve his game even more. “I’ve been preparing for this season by eating as much protein as possible and working with my trainer,” Mahmood said.

The team is made up of 19 players––ten seniors, six juniors, one sophomore, and two freshmen. There are ten returning players on the varsity level and they are all hoping for a successful season. All ten of these players have great aspirations for the season and are helping the younger kids find their way on the diamond.

As excited as the team is to start playing, two of the 19 players have had some injuries, one of them season-ending. Mahmood suffered a stress fracture in his lower back which has caused him to miss a portion of his offseason training, but he’ll be back as soon as the season begins. On a more serious note, Carden tore both his ACL and meniscus during the basketball season. Carden won’t be able to play this season due to the nine-month recovery process.

Aside from the two injuries the team is looking very good. The players are all confident in their ability to win games and they can’t wait until their first game. “We’re all excited for the season, but most importantly we’re just looking to try our best and have fun with the boys,” James said.
