Sims debuts on the mound as Revere baseball team shows some promise

The Revere High School Patriots baseball team is still winless on the season, but all signs are pointing in the right direction. New Pat’s coach Ron Jordan is upbeat because his team has been in every game as of late, the most recent being in Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Gloucester. In that game the Patriots discovered a new pitching talent and took a 2-0 lead into the sixth inning, but fumbled the advantage away via some untimely fielding errors.

“The kids have to finish a game,” said Jordan. “That’s been our story, not finishing. But I’m not going to complain. We debuted a sophomore pitcher and took the lead against a tough team.”

Sophomore pitcher Frank Sims went up against the Fishermen. He went six innings and gave up two runs on two hits. “He throws a lot of strikes and he throws hard,” said Jordan of his lefty pitcher. “It was the first chance we had to get him out there and I was hoping to get nine to 12 outs out of him, but they actually got really desperate. They started bunting to get on base. He has a lot to learn, but I like what I see.”

Revere took a 2-0 lead in the second inning off a two-run single by John Desimone.

“A lot of coaches have commended us after games,” Jordan said. “They saw what was happening in the last couple of years. Moral victories are nice, but they get old after a little while … We’re winless, but we’re handling it well. But it’s especially tough for the older kids to see their careers end like this. The positive is that we have a Memorial Day tournament at the end of the year in Wilmington. It gives us something to play for, even though we’re getting better every day.”
