It’s already been a solid year on the baseball diamond for Malden High School sophomore Brandon McMahon.
The lanky 10th grader led Malden in both hitting and pitching for the 2021 season and was named to the Greater Boston League All-Conference Team, one of only two sophomores on the 12-man squad.
More honors came recently for McMahon, a 6-2, 200 right handed hurler and third baseman when he was selected to play in the Mass. Baseball Coaches Association (MBCA) State Sophomore Select All-Star Team.
McMahon is one of 40 of the best sophomores statewide who will square off today at 1:30 pm at Monan Park at UMass Boston in the 3rd Annual State Sophomore Game.
No game was held in 2020 due to COVID-19 so this is the 3rd Annual Game today.
“Brandon had a great season for us and was one of the top players in the GBL,” Malden head coach Steve Freker said. “He was a solid pitcher for us and led us at the plate as well. He has a strong future ahead of him.”
McMahon hit .447 this last season with a team-leading 15 RBIs and 13 runs scored. He hit 5 doubles, 3 triples and the team’s only home run.
“It’s a great honor for Brandon and our school and we are very proud of his accomplishments and what excited for what is ahead for him,” Coach Freker added.
