This baseball season is going to get a whole lot better with senior Left Fielder James Morrissey at the mound. He has been a baseball varsity athlete for three years now and has been performing well.
James Morrissey is not only a star on the baseball field but he is also a star in the classroom. He is a hard worker and always does his work. He truly is a student athlete. I got to sit down with him and ask him a couple of questions.
