FRAMINGHAM – There was not a Framingham High baseball season in 2020, and it will be a COVID-19 shorten season in 2021, but Framingham High baseball coach Matt Milano is eager to get back on the diamond.
“Obviously the shortened amount of time to prepare with only 10 days to get ready for our first game is a challenge,” said Milano to SOURCE. “The reality is every team we play this season faces similar obstacles so we’re in the same boat. Now that we’re back on the field, all those off-season and pre-season challenges are in the rearview mirror and we’re focused on what’s ahead one day at a time.”
The Flyers open their season tomorrow, May 6 against the Tigers of Newton North High School at Bowditch Field’s diamong at 3:45 p.m.
There were 47 athletes who tried out for the team, and 19 on the varsity squad this season.
Milano has just two returning players Cody Coleman and Scooter Beverly, both members of the Class of 2022.
There are nine seniors on the team.
When it comes to get runs on the scoreboard, coach Milano said “It’s always going to be a team effort 1-through-9 to plate runs but we should see production coming off the bats of Alex Duffy (2021) and Scooter Beverly (2022).”
“As a coaching staff, we’re excited to see this entire group compete and to have all of our hitters find ways to get runs on the board,” said Milano.
