  Being that most of its squad will be back next year, the Revere High School baseball team has a lot to look forward to in 2023. The Patriots finished 13-8 overall this year and came in second in the Greater Boston League (GBL) standings.

  Though the campaign ended with a disappointing 8-1 loss at 23rd-seeded Beverly in the preliminary round of the Div. I tournament, the Patriots, who were seeded 42nd in the tourney, were in a close 2-1 game until Beverly broke it open with three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and three after that. Revere did load the bases in the fifth and seventh frames but could not score.

  Head Coach Mike Manning helped direct the Patriots to their best season in close to 30 years. The last time a Revere team compiled 13 or more wins was back in the 1990s. This year also marked a second consecutive playoff appearance for the school after going over two decades without a tourney bid.

  This year’s team demonstrated balance with a team pitching ERA of 1.90. Five Revere pitchers had ERAs below two, led by Ollie Svendsen’s 0.93. Kyle Cummings had the most wins while sporting a 1.62 ERA. Domenic Boudreau notched three wins.

  On offense, the Patriots struggled to score at times but got on a roll down the stretch, scoring 47 runs over the final seven regular-season games. Chris Cassidy, who broke out of an early-season slump, led the way with a .353 average. Cassidy went an impressive 17-for-31 down the stretch. Mike Popp hit .340 and was followed by Giancarlo Miro (.313) and Boudreau (.309).

  Manning told the press last week that the team showed growth and that he is excited to see what next season brings. The Patriots return all of their starting players next season. The two departing seniors are Bobby O’Brien and Juan Londono.

  The team came just one game shy of notching the GBL title, finishing at 11-3 in league play. The Lynn Classical Rams took home this year’s championship with a 12-2 mark. The Patriots split their two games against the Rams, including a close 3-1 loss to open the season. They also split against Lynn English and Somerville to account for the three league defeats.
