During the early portion of the regular scheduled baseball season, players are using their time at the plate working on getting solid contract with the ball in searching for a base hit. By mid season, high hopes of an average that’s above 300 would show how well the work at the plate has paid off. But again, it starts with those early at bats that set up how well a player’s individual season will be at the plate. The Rams from Gloucester Catholic would definitely take one step closer to increasing their averages by pounding out 16 hits during their 14-2 victory over Highland.
The Rams have had an excellent start so far this season winning 8 of their first 9 games. Their only loss was from this weekend’s baseball tournament in Maryland against Arundel during the last day of the tournament. Getting back to participate in a Tri-County Conference Royal Division game at Highland, the Rams exploded for 11 runs during the second inning to leap ahead by an 11-2 margin. That was all the runs they would need behind the excellent pitching from Dan Chobert.
