The varsity baseball team gave a good effort this season. The Port Richmond Raider squad posted a record of 8 wins and 8 losses. The Raiders had a talented group of players across the board. Starters Joshua Lopez, Bobby Hart, Jim Baez, Christian Harjo, James Mullaney, Angel Santiago, Khalid Lambert, Chris Masterson, and Christopher Maiorana, all played in the playoff game that took place at Randall’s Island field against Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Manhattan. Eric Benedetto was the starting pitcher and he was caught by Christian Harjo. The Raiders lost by a score of 11-1. Their run came on a passed ball, with Bobby Hart sprinting across home plate. It has been over five years since the Raider baseball team has made the playoffs. The team will return a high percentage of their roster next season and will be ready to make another playoff run.
