A flurry of social media announcements over the weekend of Aug. 13 report that three-sports standout and rising Belmont High School Senior Cal Christofori will be heading to New Haven to backstop Yales pitchers as he made a verbal commitment to play for Bulldog’s Head Coach John Stuper.
Christofori has been a varsity standout since his freshman year, starting in three sports: quarterbacking the Marauders’ football team, playing goalie for ice hockey, and being the battery mate for three seasons of pitchers as an outstanding two-way catcher.
This past high school season, Christofori (class of 2017) was behind the plate for the Middlesex League MVP senior pitcher Matt Bartels as he helped control the game. His defense was evident as the gun down numerous opponents attempting to steal second. He also batted above .400 and was a lights-out reliever.
