The MacArthur junior varsity A baseball team recently completed an undefeated season with 18 wins. In addition to an undefeated season, the team also won all of its scrimmages. They scored more than 10 runs per game, and the dominant pitching staff allowed less than one run per game. The pitching staff was comprised of Justin Norcini (6-0, 0.74 ERA), Joe Ryan (5-0, 0.45 ERA), Max Ziegler (5-0, 1.17 ERA), Mike Sivilli (1-0, 0.39 ERA) and Christian Burke (1.17 ERA), with Bobby Lewis as a valuable contributor (1-0, 0.00 ERA).
Offensively, Justin Norcini, Brandon Fitzgerald and Mike Sivilli batted over .400. Jared Wolfe and Matt Deblaiso led the team by each batting an even .500. Deblaiso also led the team by hitting four home runs, while Wolfe hit for the cycle against Baldwin High School.
There were numerous highlights throughout the season, including turning a triple play, back-to-back no hitters thrown by Norcini and Ryan, and several multi-home run games. Making outstanding defensive plays also became routine for the Generals due to the skills of Matt
Imbrogno, Marc Arboleda, Phil Razza and Nick Pernice.
It was truly a true team effort with each and every player contributing to make this a season to remember. Coach Dasch and Coach Nappi are proud of the team for their hard work and dedication.
