As the spring sports season arrives we will be looking into this years baseball team, this years seniors are John Harim, Jeffrey King, Jake Shiley, Joey Pindrock, Jake Murray, and Kevin Zahron. Last year the season didn’t end as they hoped for but this year they look to come back better than ever, last years final record was 4-14. Mandatory practices started on March 2nd, so the season is right around the corner and we’ll see how they do this year.
This years first scrimmage will be on March 10th against Connellsville at Bailey Park. The first exhibition game will be on March 25th against Albert Gallatin at Bailey Park. The teams captains are John Harim, Jeffrey King, and Jake Shiley.
This years ace on the mound is John Harim, last year john led the team to some crucial wins with outstanding performances. Harim also led the team with the lowest ERA, and led the team in pitching strikeouts. Last years highest batting average was Owen Martin, but he graduated. The Raiders look to improve their hitting, and compete with teams in their section. Be there for the across town rivalry game against Laurel Highlands, the Raiders expect nothing less than playoffs so make sure to stay tuned throughout the season.
