Revere 781-629-3798 PARKING AMAZING WATER VIEWS Tide baseball gets set to begin new season on the road at Winchester on Monday Everett will take on Revere in the home opener on April 15 By Joe Mitchell E verett High School baseball coach Joe Lento had a highly inexperienced team last year, as a result of losing a bunch of seniors who played and contributed quite a bit to the varsity throughout the previous three springs. The Tide won only four games in 2018, but were still highly competitive against some of the top echelon teams in the Northeastern Conference, which certainly gained them valuable experience going forward. Everett did graduate three off of last year’s team, including captain/pitcher Jason Hennessey, who was a high-level contributor, according to Lento. But there are still plenty of veteran varsity players returning to this year’s roster. “We have a ton of returning guys in key spots who gained valuable varsity experience last season,” said Lento. “We are a strong defensive team who will rely on being smart and playing fundamental baseball. Our weakness will be pitching depth and experience, which becomes challenging during three-game weeks.” Lento offered his thoughts on this being the final season in the Northeastern Conference before Everett joins Somerville, Medford, Malden and Revere in the fall in order to reestablish the Greater Boston League. “As far as being in the NEC, the league has been welcoming, and it will be sad to go,” he said. “But we will be in a new GBL with more geographic and demographic counterparts. Whoever is on the schedule, we will go out and play Everett baseball and let the chips fall where they may.” Lento continued to emphasize that they will be a smart, disciplined team in the field during the next three months. “Our pitching depth and experience will be trying, but we will do our best to coach them up and prepare them the right way,” he added. “Our hitting will also be a relative strength, returning seven from last year’s lineup.” With the regular season still a week away, Lento will let the scrimmages scheduled for this week determine the starting lineup. “I cannot give a definitive answer as to who will play where,” he said. “We are starting scrimmages [Monday, April 1, at Malden Catholic], and some things will start to reveal themselves, and we will go from there to put the best possible lineup we can out there in order to give ourselves the best chance to win baseball games.” Lento doesn’t foresee any one team in the NEC that will be more of a challenge than another. “Every team provides a challenge on our schedule,” he said. “Baseball is a mental game, and the team that can deal and do enough of the little things correctly will put themselves in the best position to win.” The Tide will open up the regular season on Monday, April 8, against host Winchester, starting at 4 p.m. They will then play host to Revere in the home opener at Glendale Park on Monday, Patriots Day (April 15), starting at 10 a.m. Applications available for Mayor’s Youth Summer Job Program T he City of Everett is now accepting applications for Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Summer Youth Job Program.
