The bases are loaded. Everyone on Marist’s side is holding their breath.

The pitcher throws the ball and…

What happens next?


I don’t know, you’ll have to go to the next boys baseball game to find out! The boys baseball team so far this season has been crushing it. Experienced team members, new players and coaches are coming together to make a wonderful team. The spirit and passion for the sport really shows with these boys. This year Micheal Gray was nominated for nj.com’s Top 75 junior position players (http://www.nj.com/hssn-mms/2018/04/baseball_junior_position_playe.html) we are all very proud of him for being nominated, so make sure to go vote for him.



According to Ricky Lancaster, who is a first time player, the season so far has been “going well and getting harder as the season goes on.” Sameer Hakk, who plays football with Lancaster in the fall, had this to say, “The environment is different and I found new abilities I never knew I had.” The two are excited to play next year as well.


Some upcoming games are Monday the 7th at 4:30 at Vets Stadium and Friday the 11th in Weehawken at 4:30.
