The J.P. Taravella baseball team is doing very well this season with a 7-1 record, the only loss coming to Park Vista. Pitcher Justin Walker is 3-0 with wins coming against Cardinal Gibbons, Douglas, and Cooper City. Pitcher Jack Kelley is 2-1. Manny Pantaleon, left field is batting .400 and Joseph Livio, shortstop is hitting .330. Lin0 Bravo, third base is hitting .350.
Walker said it important to stay focused and calm to a successful pitcher. He would like to play division one college baseball and eventually play the game professionally. He has heard from Liberty University, Florida Gulf Coast University and other college baseball teams. The Trojans still have some big tests including games against Stoneman Douglas, Coral Springs and Coral Glades. Justin Walker is pictured below.
