Barrons off to 5-0 start with veteran pitching, young hitting

The expectations inside the Woodbridge baseball program were higher than outside. The good teams always believe in themselves before anyone else does.

But the Barrons so far in 2022 have been able to walk the walk; they’re off to a 5-0 start and make their debut this week in the Bellamy & Son Paving High School Baseball rankings, entering at No. 6 this week.

Though six seniors graduated nearly a year ago, the pitching staff is by-and-large untouched, only graduating 16 innings of work from the 2021 squad.

In the first five games of the season, that’s led to one shutout and just 13 total runs allowed in the other four games.

But the Barrons also have been resilient at the plate, coming from behind on a couple of occasions as well.
