Upcoming Season of Baseball

When the weather gets a little warmer it’s a marking for not only spring, but spring sports. One of the sports played in the spring category is baseball.  San Mateo will have both a Varsity and Junior Varsity team going into the 2018 season.  Both teams are in an exciting place because their are a lot more open spots on the team.  Last year’s lineup was comprised mostly of seniors, which means  there are many hungry underclassman looking for a spot in the starting nine.

According to Assistant Coach Matt Labbie, even though the loss of so many seniors will be hard, the team has many other players who are very experienced.  He expects that current Senior, Jacob Selph,  will step up to be a great leader to the younger players, as well as the rest of the team.  

Their is a lot of enthusiasm and excitement for this upcoming season.  The team’s schedule is filled with their challenging opponents, like their first home game against the Hillsdale Knights.  The coaching staff is ecstatic for many things, one of them being Sophomore, Antonio Rojas.  Rojas is expected to be a strong component of the team, leading from behind the dish.  

Something this year’s team and last year’s team have in common are their abundance of raw talent.  Although, one difference is the 2018 roster has amazing chemistry.  Labbie claims this is because most of the boys play together on the offseason with their club teams.  Last year, the team got moved up a division and they finished in the middle of the pack.  This year’s main goal is to continue to compete and win the division title.

San Mateo baseball obviously has a rival with Burlingame because it’s the school’s rival, but their own personal rival is against Aragon.  With Aragon they have more of a personal connection because many of the boys play on travel teams together.

Coach Labbie is very excited to see what’s to come, “Even though we lost a lot of seniors, I’m confident in this upcoming group.  They’ve continued to work hard in the off season… It’s going to be a good season.”
