Toyota High School Athletes- The Liverpool Battery, Jacob Sisto and Jeff DeStefano

Jacob Sisto and Jeff DeStefano form quite the battery for Liverpool Baseball (Matt Hauswirth)

Ask any baseball mind and they'll tell you the battery is the most important part of the team in the field.

"The Battery", if you're unfamiliar with the term, refers to the pitcher and catcher.

They have to work in unison to ensure success on the mound and ultimately on the scoreboard.

If Liverpool's 14-3 record is any indication, that's exactly how you can describe the relationship with Warrior catcher Jacob Sisto and pitcher Jeff DeStefano.

DeStefano has an ERA of 0.6. No, that's not a typo.

Rest assured, it's a team effort with Jeff and Jacob.

DeStefano also gets it done on the mound, hitting a whopping .484 this season, as the regular season comes to a close.

Sisto's no slouch at the plate either, right on Jeff's heels batting .392.

"It helps having a team of seniors" DeStefano says. "We all know each other outside the game, we all have great chemistry and I think that helps a lot and I think it's one of the most important things about winning on this field" he adds.

Congratulations to Jeff DeStefano and Jacob Sisto, our Toyota High School Athletes of the Week.
