Baseball: Saugus has a freshman to watch in Joey Mendez
Freshman outfielder Joey Mendez is earning rave reviews for Saugus.
He's batting over .450 with two home runs, including a 400-foot blast off of Kyle Molnar of Aliso Niguel.
He also had a two-run double off Dos Pueblos' Gabe Speier in a loss on Saturday.
Coach John Maggiora calls him "the most advanced hitter that's come into our program in my eight years."
