Peabody baseball determined to reload for another run

(Continued)

Seniors Maynard Wheeler and Robbie Crovo are in line to step into outfield roles, though Correale, Raymond and classmate Matt Gonick had strong preseasons. Sean McGrath started as a sophomore last year and will contend for time when he recovers from an injury.

In the infield, sophomores Ryan Collins, Tanner Moquin and Mike Petrosino could challenge for playing time. Senior Max Gordon is a solid bat that could contribute as well.

The names may be changing, but the general philosophy remains for the Tanners. They’ll be a prepared, aggressive team that takes on all comers and works for every out.

“That’s the way we’ve always done things and our goals don’t change,” Bettencourt said. “Our guys are motivated to keep that going, though our league looks very good with Lynn English, Beverly, Danvers, Gloucester and other. It’s tough top to bottom.”
