Port Richmond High School Baseball Team Finishes a Strong Season
The Port Richmond High School baseball team finished their 2017 season with a record of 10-6. This record was due to each player being organized and attentive during each play, and the team’s overall determination to succeed.The first couple of games of the season started off well with 3 consecutive wins, all high scoring games. Starters Vincent Zeh, Edward Rodriguez, Angel Santiago, Robert Hart, Joshua Lopez, Christopher Maiorana, Eric Benedetto, Jim Baez, Ryan Masterson, and Christian Harjo, who got injured midway into the season, were major contributors to the team’s successful season. When the regular season ended, the team’s first playoff game was against Roosevelt Educational Campus, where Eric Benedetto pitched to a 3-1 win, Robert Hart, Jim Baez, and Joshua Lopez got the bats swinging, and scored those three runs.Coach John Sce’s quote, “Ball, Base, Backup” are words that the team plays by. Although their season ended in the next game against Petrides, the Raiders came in 4th in the regular season and got farther than they had in the last two years.
