The sun is coming out, the leaves are reappearing on the trees, and the season for the Durfee baseball team is back. Having lost only four seniors to graduation last year, the team is looking forward to a successful spring season.

The Hilltoppers' strengths this season come from being well-rounded in leadership, depth, and experience, as they have thirteen seniors and four juniors on the team.

The boys had their first game away at Coyle Cassidy High School on Wednesday, April 6 and won 7-6. The starter for the game was Nathan Farias, the team's captain and four-year veteran. 

The Hilltoppers have been walking proud with their fresh, new baseball attire due to their yearly fund-raiser to help purchase uniforms for the program.

Tonight, April 8, the team is having a kick-off dinner at the Cultural Center. At the dinner, the teams and all of the people who have helped to make them who they are will be recognized. Either an auction or a raffle for box-seat tickets to a Boston Redsox game will take place at the dinner.

All of the pieces are there for Durfee's baseball team to have a successful season, but going out there and putting those pieces together is what's going to make them work and win. High expectations are expected from the boys this year and only hard work, teamwork, and perseverance will determine whether or not there will be a successful season for the Hilltoppers.
