SHARON, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – Sharon baseball coach Kevin Burns is ready for the 2021 season to get underway.

“I’m very excited for what is to come,” Burns said. “I definitely feel we’ll get better as the season moves along. We have a great group of hardworking athletes who love to play baseball.”

The Tigers are fortunate to have a couple of key players returning in senior shortstop Sully Brown and junior second baseman Cole Voytik (P) as well as their third baseman Mikey Rodriques (P).

“We’re (fielding) a young team,” indicates first-year coach Burns. “We’re very capable of competing. We have a good freshman class which some of the players could see plenty of varsity action.”

Sharon opens up the new season on Friday, March 26 with a contest against state champion-West Middlesex.
