Night ball makes early appearance at Kuilsriver Cardinals in Cape Town

Night ball made an early appearance this year as the Kuilsriver Cardinals kicked off the action with the first club night ball festival of the year this past Friday.

Hosted at the Cardinals Baseball Club in Kuilsriver, Cape Town, and spearheaded by Cardinals Chairman Mr. Romeo Adams, the event showcased a festival of baseball for U-10 and U-12 teams from across Cape Town, featuring participants from Kuilsriver Cardinals, Athlone A’s, Durbanville, and Westridge Yankees.

With more than one hundred and twenty children participating the event took full advantage of the school holidays and everyone’s eager anticipation for baseball action, the matches unfolded across two fields, with U-10’s competing in 45-minute bouts and U-12 in 60-minute matchups.

Adopting a round-robin format, teams earned three points for a win, and the overall winners were determined by the top position on the leaderboard in each age group at the conclusion of play.

The event underscored the entertainment value of traditional night ball baseball. Parents and fans not only relished the on-field excitement but also enjoyed the venue’s hospitality, featuring convenient parking and a variety of food and beverages for sale.

During the post-match gathering, Athlone A’s Chairman Tony Alexander conveyed gratitude on behalf of the participating teams. He expressed anticipation for more events of this nature. Cardinals Chairman Romeo Adams added that this event is just the beginning of many, expressing the desire to expand the concept to clubs with lesser facilities.

The event concluded with a display of accolades for the junior players, including trophies, and memorabilia, recognizing both winning and participating teams. The final results crowned Cardinals U-10 and U-12 teams as the victors; with Carl Lewis (Durbanville) and AJ Daniels (Cardinals) announced as the Players of the Festival for the Under 10 age-group and Alex Kerchoff (As) as the Player of the Festival for the Under 12 age-group.

The early commencement of a junior age division baseball series this year signals the enduring passion for South African Baseball and the fervent desire for early-season baseball action.
