Five Nipmuc, BVT Players Take the Legion Diamond
The Nipmuc and Blackstone Valley Tech baseball teams will be well represented this summer in the legion baseball ranks, with five players on the rosters of Milford Post 59 and Northbridge Post 343.
Kyle Nocera of Nipmuc returns to Milford after pitching near the top of the rotation last year. He capped off his high school season by striking out 11 in a district tournament game, and finishing the year with a 1.56 ERA. He is working through an injury suffered at the end of the spring, Milford manager Steve DiVitto said, but is still expected to be able to contribute as the season progresses.
"We are looking for him to develop into a top of the rotation guy, play some outfield, and hit in the lineup," DiVitto said. "He is a returning veteran with a great attitude, so we are looking to what he can provide."
Valley Tech ace Tyler Brodeur, who posted a 2.14 ERA this spring with 55 strikeouts in 46 innings, also joins the Milford roster this year.
"He is another guy we want in the rotation," DiVitto said. "He is a bulldog, he is not overpowering but he finds a way to get guys out, he did that in the high school season. He likes the challenge of legion baseball and I think he will embrace that challenge."
Nipmuc stars Tom Sperino and Izaiah Wadsworth are back for another summer with Northbridge after helping Post 343 to an appearance in the state tournament in 2015 and manager John Demagian said he expects both to be regulars in the starting lineup. 
"We expect Sperino to dominate on the mound, he is going to play first base and may play in the outfield too, depending on how many pitches he throws in a given start," Demagian said. "Wadsworth is another guy who is a veteran, he is going to play one of the outfield positions every day. We are expecting a lot out of these guys, they were with us last year when we went to states."
Sperino posted a 6-1 record on the mound with a 1.05 ERA, the best in the Dual Valley League. He also hit .388 for the spring. Wadsworth hit over .400 to lead the Warriors and joined Sperino in having a sub-1.50 ERA.
Northbridge also welcomes BVT catcher Marc Flores, who hit over .300 for BVT, with Demagian calling him a player "they are just getting to know."He is going to play a couple of different positions," Demagian said. "He can catch, play first base, and be a designated hitters."
"The big thing with these schools (Nipmuc and BVT) is they are well coached, they are well-prepared, and well-conditioned, they play in big games," DiVitto added. "Over the past few years, we have seen the amount of talent that has come out of these schools really improve. These are guys who are ready to go early on."
