This year, baseball has seen some changes to the program, their field and staff. New coach, Bret LeVier, replaced former baseball coach, Jeremy Wooten.

The varsity baseball team is currently 2-2 in league, which is not a bad record, but LeVier believes that they have a good roster this year and possess great potential.

Levier says “We have good kids all the way through, and have had good support from our parents and administration.” With this support, anything is possible for the team and are headed in the right direction.

The field has been improved for this season. New netting was installed in the batting cages, new turf, plus a new backstop that makes it easier to see the action. These changes have been needed for many years, and overall make it a more aesthetically pleasing place to watch a game.

Coach LeVier came into the program treating all the players great”

— Jack Patnoe

According to LeVier, some standout players on varsity are Jack Patnoe, Hayden Merda, Matt Alexander, and many more.

“Coach LeVier came into the program treating all the players great,” said Jack Patnoe. In regards to his personal game he mentioned how Coach LeVier “Coached him to hit better than he ever has.”

The future looks promising for the baseball program with all these great changes on and off the field. LeVier hopes to lead the varsity team to a league title this year.

He is also a fan of baseball movies. In order of preference he likes: Bull Durham, The Sandlot, Major League, Field of Dreams, Rookie of the Year.
