Upper Moreland Baseball Preview


Coach: Jim Fasano (3rd year)

Assistant coaches: Pete Moore, Jason Kelmer, Matt Cavagnaro, Jeff Rampulla, Steve Madley, Mike Pattison

Last year's record: 9-10 (8-8 in League, Won SOL Freedom)

Notable losses: Shawn Townsend (Penn College of Technology), Jimmy Torpey (PSU Abington), Paul Meyers, Jaryd Meehl

Key returners: Pat Kilgus (Jr), Jackson Townsend (So), Nate Kelly (Sr), Colson Campbell (Jr), Dylan Wood (Sr), Tanner Sharp (Sr), Alex Best (Sr), Colin Fell (Sr)

Others to watch: Nick Simons (So), Luke Sword (So), Jimmy Murray (So), Zach O'Connor (So), Dilan Gruenbaum (Jr), Max Abbosh (Jr)

Strengths/Question Marks: We will be young, but we have some outstanding sophomores and freshmen who are ready to contribute on varsity. How we perform likely depends on the strength of our lineup which returns some proven, veteran players. 

Outlook: “I am excited about our young players along with our older guys, we have a great mix of seniors ready to contribute and youngsters chomping at the bit to prove they belong. Sword, Simons and Fell should anchor our rotation along with quality innings coming from Best, Sharp, Kelly and Townsend. We have a chance to be really good, we could also experience some growing pains, but it is a great group of kids who will make the school and community proud!”
