Exeter, BC among early Berks baseball favorites

Published On: Mar 25 2014 05:28:26 PM CDT

The Eagles and Saints are expected to be among the top competitors for a Berks County baseball title this season.

BERKS COUNTY -

Exeter and Berks Catholic are considered two of the early favorites within their divisions of Berks County for the upcoming baseball season.

Exeter had one of the finest season's of any squad in Berks County last year. The Eagles captured the Berks I title, reached the District 3 championship game and earned a spot in the state tournament.

Exeter is looking to surpass all that this season. They're off to a good start, 2-0 on the young campaign.

What's been impressive to some of the veteran players in the early going has been the ability of the younger guys.

Whether it's been in the batters box, in the field, or on the mound, the Eagles' returning starters have enjoyed not having to carry the load all by themselves.

In Berks II, Berks Catholic is considered one of the early favorites to contend for a division title.

B.C. qualified for the District playoffs last year, but the Saints did not like the way they finished the season.

An experienced B.C. team is back this year, ready to put last season in the rear view mirror. Behind some very talented pitching, the Saints are eager to get up and running.
