Peabody’s Genaro Ciulla, other catchers anchor teams’ tournament runs
Catchers are playing a big role for tournament-bound teams. Pat Ruotolo has been dazzling on the mound for the Peabody High baseball team this spring. But the junior ace, 8-0 with a 0.42 earned average for the 16-6 Tanners, is the first one to laud the work of his starting catcher, Genaro Ciulla, for his success. So too does coach Mark Bettencourt. At Chelmsford, Matt Rabbito has been a rock behind the plate for the Lions, while Brandon Walsh is a take-charge leader for North Andover.
