Varsity Baseball - Boys
In recent years, the Pingree baseball team has won over a dozen Eastern Independent League (EIL) Championships and numerous New England Small School Championship titles. The Eastern Independent League includes schools such as Bancroft School, Berwick Academy, and Lexington Christian Academy. Outside the league, we play against Cushing Academy, the Governor’s Academy, BB&N, Belmont Hill School, Noble and Greenough, and Brooks School. A number of our alumni have gone to play at the college level, while many others simply wanted to enjoy a high school career. This balance is a big advantage to our baseball program and to athletics in general at Pingree.
Our success has been accomplished through hard work and the assembly of teams filled with a good deal of talent. We maintain a program that encourages participation by everyone. While the program is challenging and rigorous, fun is an important part of all that we do on the field. Interest and participation in baseball has been expanding rapidly, giving us more players in the last four years than ever before. With the number of players we have, we are able to offer a full varsity, junior varsity, and freshman team schedule with many games and a wide range of competition.
