Odds and ends: Only a junior, catcher Luke Hajdukiewicz of Andover is expected to get Division 1 looks behind the plate this spring. ...

Coach John Fahey (10th year, 46-100-2): “The new guys are going to play a big role. We’re still trying to figure where everyone fits. I expect significant improvement as the season rolls along. With only three seniors so we’re really looking to build a new culture here.”
