Danvers 13s gear up for state tournament in Lynn

(Continued)

In the District title game against Saugus, 11 of the last 12 outs that Danvers recorded came in the infield.

Nick Raimo starts behind the plate for Danvers; D’Amora can also catch. The pitching staff has a pair of right-handed aces in Bussone and Dillon; Justin Nadeau is a lefty who can cause a myriad of matchup problems for opponents. Rossito is another starter who has been steady and dependable; so has Joe Nicolo (who also plays first base).

Carrying the offensive clout is Leete, the team’s leadoff hitter and table setter; Raimo and Bussone, who switch off hitting in the second and third slots in the lineup; and Billings, Usalis, Boudreault and Rossito, who hit 4-5-6-7.

The winner of the Eastern Massachusetts Babe Ruth 13-year-old championship advances to New Englands in Manchester, N.H., next weekend.
