Waiting On Their Pitch
By PJ MONTEZUMA As the baseball season is coming down to its final innings, the Malden High School Varsity Baseball team shows no signs of giving up. Standing in at a record of 3-11, the team has 5 more games until the end of the season. Being led by Head Coach Carpenito and senior captains Bobby Madden, Nick Ward and Philip Glynn, the team has gone through a season that was one to learn from. Consisting of only seven seniors this year- Madden, Ward, Glynn, Frailin Medrano, Keyshawn Bridgeman-Dicks, Matthew Delaney, and Nicholas Mason- the team had a lot of new faces and young potential that will lead the team to success in the next few seasons. The sophomores and juniors have played a major role on the team this year, “filling in some starting spots and eating innings on the mound” says Madden. MHS had been triumphant against Pope John, Somerville High School, and East Boston High School. One of their best games on the field was against Melrose High School due to the fact that Malden came back from a 7-0 deficit, all though they did not walk away with the win they never gave up and played with determination. Madden stated “pushes [them] to be [their] best and coach Carp wants [them] to succeed both on and off the field” with admiration towards coach Carpenito. The team looks forward to their final games and seven of their final goodbyes to their most beloved sport at MHS. Even after the season ends, the bonds that the team had built this season will not break the will of this team of talented players.
