Kevin Superko didn’t consider himself a pitcher. That was his brother’s thing.
The elder Superko, Tim, starred as a polished lefty at Wellesley High and headed to Phillips Andover Academy for a preparatory year last fall. Eventually he committed to play Division 3 baseball at Tufts University.
Kevin was a second baseman in his senior year at Wellesley—and a good one at that. But after attending a lesson last fall with Matt Blake, pitching coach for the New England Ruffnecks, the 6-foot righty is starting to garner attention for his work on the mound.
This summer, he is one of the top starters for the Ruffnecks 18U team, and last month he was the winning pitcher when the Ruffnecks beat the East Cobb Astros. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
