Freshmen adjust to competing in college

Sam Curcio, Contributing Writer

Pitt-Johnstown freshmen baseball players say they are looking forward to collegiate competition.

Freshmen pitcher Trenton Ream said collegiate baseball is a lot different from the high school season.

Team members are more involved and always doing something.

“It’s a lot of hard work,” Ream said.

Although Ream is out with an injury, he said he hopes to do his part for a winning season.

Ream said he tore his labrum in his shoulder, from pitching too much. He had surgery and will start pitching again in January.

Ream said he is nervous to play in games again, but he hopes to help out the team as much as he can.

Freshman catcher Cam Kichline said the fall season is going well.

The team is 2-0 in an abbreviated fall season.

One can never be prepared for playing at the collegeiate level, but he hopes to hold his own.

“It’s a dream come true,” says Kichline.

He wants to push himself and his teammates to do their parts this year.

Freshman Ben Foose said the team has great coaches, and in the short amount of time that he has helped with the pitches better.

He said that trusting his abilities, working out kinks and throwing quality innings will be important to him this year.

Going to college and playing baseball makes you work a lot harder said Foose.
