Souderton baseball team has high hopes

The young team’s energetic dynamic is propelling them forward to a hopeful run at the state title for a second time.


In hopes to revive the dynamic of the team that led to the 2019 state championship title, the baseball team is growing their program through their younger players and abundance of existing skill.
The team kicked off their 2022 season with a trip to Maryland to take part in some “small games” in which they played well according to junior varsity baseball coach Brian Ruth.
“We have a smaller roster this year,” Ruth said. “We need to stay healthy because we don’t have a lot of arms.”
With the smaller numbers this season, a dynamic of a tight- knit team is beginning to surface.
“If I could explain our team in one word for this year, it would be electric,” sophomore Jeremy Fallon said.
Bringing this “electric” energy to the field is promoting a positive environment for players to succeed individually and as a team.
“I don’t think they have a weak link anywhere on the diamond,” Ruth said. “We have a lot of strong bats in our lineup.”
The Souderton baseball team was ranked first in the Suburban One Colonial Division as of April 9, according to
The team’s strong start to the season launches the platform to lead the team to states according to Ruth.
“This team is capable of going all the way [to states],” Ruth said.
The team this year reflects a dependable and strong foundation according to Ruth.
“Our team is younger,” said Ruth. “It’s good for the future.”
This year’s varsity team has three sophomores, all of whom pitch.
The junior varsity team has a strong mindset of growth and preparation according to Ruth. “Both JV and varsity 10- runned our first opponent,” Ruth said. “We are off to a strong start.”
“The depth varsity has in the field and behind their bats is really good. There is a great amount of skill,’ Ruth said.
The team has been hitting off pitchers committed to colleges like Boston College and Duke University, according to Ruth.
