Boston Athletics Outlook for 2020
The Boston Athletics Baseball Club proudly enter their third season in the BPL with high expectations. Having made the postseason in its first two seasons, the A’s look to make another playoff push in 2020.
Change is in the air for the Athletics. A new manager in Nate Laliberte and a merger with the reigning Yawkey League champion Revere Rockies highlighted the offseason making a strong veteran roster even better and incredibly deep. With two core groups of players teaming up to form one veteran super core the A’s have depth all over the field
The regular season lineup has been impressive for BABC in its first two years in the Park League finishing atop the league in hitting in 2018 and 2019. The playoffs have been a different story. With runs hard to come by the A’s were bounced in the first round both seasons.
Key additions for 2020:
The Revere Rockies are coming off a monster Yawkey League season. The Rocks, managed by Nate Laliberte, led the league in hitting, they went 29-2 in the regular season finishing in first place and then capped it off with a finals series victory in 6 games on a walk off home run.
The other key addition for the Club will be the guy filling out the lineup card. Franchise co-owner John Kostas is stepping aside as the on field manager, hiring a familiar face, Nate Laliberte. Nate has served as an assistant for the past 2 seasons for the A’s club while also filling in part time on the field.
John Kostas has been managing the A’s core for eight seasons dating back to its Yawkey League days. He will slide into a bench player and assistant role during games, but continue his work off the field as a general manager and club owner.
The Athletics also take pride in supporting the league and Boston baseball community off the field. The club is littered with guys that played or currently play college baseball, coach, train and mentor younger players and athletes.
