Wareham High baseball still has tournament hopes
Despite a tough season, Wareham High’s baseball team isn’t giving up. They still have a shot to take part in the playoffs, depending on their performance in next week’s games.
On Friday, the team lost 3-0 to Joseph Case High School.
Coach Chris Cabe said that despite the rough season, there’ve been glimpses of the team’s potential.
But a small program makes it hard — the high school has only one team, and its sixteen members include two eighth-graders. That means every student who wants to play baseball is on the varsity team.
Cabe said that there hasn’t been a strong feeder program, and baseball is a tough sport to pick up in high school.
One bright spot: Pitcher Andre Silvia.
Cabe said he pitched “a heck of a game” on Friday — one of his best of the season.
The team’s next home game will be at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 27, against the Atlantis Charter School.
