NEWPORTâ€“The 2013 North Country baseball team is going back to the basics.
Coach Brian Bonvechio's crew will look to get back to the fundamentals of America's favorite pastime as they prepare to face Vermont's top players in the ever tough Metro Division.
"This year we mad a real commitment to improving our defense, as well as our pitching staff," Bonvechio said. "We would like to think we are about five pitchers deep, and although we don't have a lot of depth, we are pretty strong defensively, we have a lot of speed and a little bit of pop in the middle of the order.
"The hard part will be that there is a lot of kids moving right up from the JV level."
The season kicks off for the Falcons on Tuesday, April 16th when they travel to Lyndon to take on the Vikings.
First pitch is at 4:30.
