High School Baseball: Pitching-Rich Simsbury Looks To Tighten Up Defense

As the spring finally gets underway, the Simsbury High baseball team, while rife with talent, is looking to correct some early season defensive miscues.

The Trojans are loaded with capable arms on the mound, led by college-bound starters Jack Donofrio and Brandon White. But they’ve started the season 1-2 thanks to errors in losses to both Greenwich and Manchester, a problem the team had last season and is hoping to correct.

“We lost to Greenwich because we couldn’t play defense,” coach Dave Masters said. The team committed eight errors in the loss to the Cardinals. “[Donofrio] was 7-0 as a freshman, but last year we didn’t have defense or run support for him.”
