RANDOLPH, NJ- Sixteen seniors from the Randolph baseball team, an unusually high number for a high school varsity squad, were honored on Wed. May 10 for their dedication and commitment to the program.

“This will always be a special class to us as coaches, since they were all sophomores when we took over three years ago,” said Rams Manager Doug Anderson. “They are my first full Varsity class that has been with us the whole way, so nobody will replace them.  There are a lot special boys in this class; we will miss their leadership, their work ethic, and their toughness."

The group has seen a good amount of success in their Rams baseball career. As freshmen they went undefeated and won the league championship.  As sophomores, at least six played significant innings (A couple as full time starters) and all were integral in contributing to a magical season ending run to win the state sectional title. Junior year saw their varsity record improve to 15-10, and a Morris County Title barely eluding their grasp on a controversial last out call.

Now, as seniors, they are having a great run with a record of 16-3, and reaching the Morris County Tournament finals for a second straight year, to be played on Monday May 15.

“It's amazing how well they all get along; they have great chemistry and I hope our younger guys have learned a lot from being around them all,” said Anderson. That has been an instrumental part of our success the past three years.”

In the West Morris game, Connor Sullivan hammered an RBI triple, while Ryan Mulligan and Shane Keane each belted RBI doubles to help power the offense.  Jake  Barbiere was 2-for-2 with a stolen base, while Brendan Lowery had a hit, stolen base, and a run scored.

Trevor Salvior threw four innings, giving up two hits striking out seven strikeouts to earn the win.  Chris Doige threw in relief, giving up two hits, a run, and striking out two.

With the MCT Finals on Monday and just couple more regular season games before states, the end of their Rams career is near.  Anderson had some words to offer his seniors, as they prepare to move on to the next chapter of their lives.

“I would hope that my coaching staff and I have been able to convey life lessons through baseball about teamwork, dedication, and commitment,” said Anderson. “These are qualities that they can apply in their future that will help them become quality citizens in communities all over the country/world.” 

Anderson paused, then concluded with, “And no matter what, always find time to smile and have fun; just know when it is the right time to do it.”
