Of course, you’d have to go a long way to convince Pelham High coach Billy Beauchesne that his middle duo takes a back seat to anyone.

“This is the best second-shortstop combination in Pelham High history,” said Beauchesne of shortstop Jake Vaiknoras and second baseman Chris Gamble.

Those two put on a defensive show as Pelham reached the state semifinals. The best news of all is both return in 2014.

SPEED MERCHANT

Anyone who has seen an Andover football game knew that senior Cam Farnham can fly.

Still, his scoring from second on a deep infield pop out vs. Chelmsford boggles the mind.

Endicott gets a good one in the two-year captain Farnham, who struggled a bit early on offense but made people pay in the second half.

BEST FASHION STATEMENT

With all due respect to Andover’s Nate Giammasi and his old school baggie “flannels” look, complete with the 1960s era stirrups, the best look of spring goes to the Ingraham Three.

That is Georgetown’s David, C.J. and Colby Ingraham and their minions, many of whom chose to grow out and slick back the hair, a la Oakland’s Josh Reddick.

The flowing, flipping locks out the backside of the helmet were classic. They look like Dirt Dogs. They play hard and look good.

FAN FAVORITE DOMINATES LATE

If you had to root for one athlete this spring, you couldn’t have gone wrong with Central Catholic’s Brady Abraham.

The senior right-fielder overcame the loss of his mom in 2006 and then a broken collarbone from a ski accident his junior year. He grew into one of the most feared hitters in the region.

After a 9-for-36 start, Abraham met with his coach.

“I met with Brady the day before a game and made a mechanical adjustment in his stance and swing,” said coach Marc Pelletier.
