The Hershey High School baseball team wrapped up their regular season on May 16th with a record of 10-10. 

“This season was a vast improvement over last season. We doubled our wins from last season,” said Anderson.

The team led by Coach David Anderson will not be appearing in the district playoff tournament this year. They held a Mid Penn conference record of 7-7, including defeating Palmyra (2 games), Carlisle (2 games), Central Dauphin East (2 games), and Bishop McDevitt. 

Their stats were well improved from last year’s 5-14 regular season record and 4-10 Mid Penn Conference record. 

Anderson credits the team’s improvement to pitching, hustle and an overall positive team attitude. Pitching was led by Sophomores Danny Nelson and Sean Callahan, Junior Grant Ebert, and Seniors Patrick Scheib and James DeShong. 

Leading the team in fielding was senior catcher Michael Kern.  “The team was very positive and upbeat this year,” said Kern.

Anderson said continuing to improve their pitching lineup is the team’s main goal for next year. “You cannot win or be competitive without good pitching,” said Anderson.

The team’s largest deficit was leaving too many runners on base and losing in extra innings. 

Senior outfielder Nicholas Colarossi led the team with five doubles and one triple.“We had multiple games in extra innings for the most part we didn’t prevail on,” said Colarossi.
