The Patterson baseball team lost their first game of the season against Baltimore City College after school at Patterson on Friday March 29, 2013. The score was 13-5, City. Tical Montgomery and Sha’Quel Ramsey both scored during the game, while Jorge Ynfante led the defense from the pitcher’s mound. According to Coach Gagne, Patterson made too many mistakes on defense and did not score enough runs on offence.

During training and practice, the baseball players spend most of their time on basic fundamentals: catching, throwing, pitching, and hitting. Many of their players have never played in an organized baseball game before. They only had 3 weeks to prepare for the season.

Since the first game, Patterson has played 3 more games. Their most recent game was also their first victory as they defeated Mervo 17-9. “To be much better by the end of the season than they are right now, they need to help each other and take care of each other”, Coach Gagne commented.
