Last year’s Rams huddle up, ready to take the field against Hunterdon Central on May 11, 2023, before winning the game, 10-0. This year’s Rams are poised to have a successful season and are eyeing a shot at the state championship.

The Randolph Baseball team is gearing up for the 2023-2024 season with high expectations. With the majority of last year’s starters returning, the Rams are poised to have a successful season, eyeing a shot at the state championship. Last year, the team finished with a 14-12 record, facing off against some of the toughest competition in the state.

Despite their record, the Rams looked like one of the strongest teams in the state, boasting a combined .303 batting average and a cumulative 3.92 ERA. However, they faced tough opponents such as Delbarton, a top-ten team in the state, and Morris Knolls, the Group 3 state champions. Despite these challenges, the Rams managed to maintain a winning percentage above .500.

“Everyone plays at such a high level; I think it will serve us well,” said senior outfielder Ethan Gorman when asked about the team’s prior experience.

“We have a wide range of experience this year, with returning players and younger guys stepping up to take on key roles for the team,”  junior infielder AJ Terry added.

The Rams are welcoming back 10 varsity players from last year’s squad for the 2024 season. This includes seniors James Kleiven, Tommy Martin, Jacob Corsaro, Ethan Gorman, Carter Kielbania, Rocco Albano and Connor Stokoe; and juniors Terry, Max Brown and Andrew Dobres. The team is stacked with talent, boasting four college commits, including Drew commit Stokoe, Miami commit Kleiven, UMaine commit Martin and North Carolina commit Terry.

“We’re definitely aiming for a state championship and county title,” said Gorman when asked about the team’s goals for the year.

The Rams hope to kick off the season with a strong performance as they face Montville on Monday, April 1, at 4:00 P.M.
