Baseball at Cabrini is looking promising to be part of the club sports the school has to offer.
It has been four years since Cabrini offered the option of playing baseball as a club sport. This year Cabrini College is looking to resurrect the club team.
Last year those interested in club baseball teamed up with neighbor-school Valley Forge Military College. This year Cabrini is teaming up with Valley Forge, only this time they have a substantial amount of students committed to making club baseball a notable club sport at Cabrini.
The movement is headed by freshman Cole Kinsey, who first sparked interest by putting flyers up around campus. Bruce Bryde, a member of the marketing department at Cabrini, is the advisor for the club and assisting Kinsey with the essentials and coaching the team.
Bryde is a former head coach for Drexel.
The amount if interest generated the decision to call for a meeting in the Dixon Center conference room Feb. 27th at 7:00 p.m.
A group of 16 interested players met with Bryde and Orlin Jespersen, head of intramural sports at Cabrini, and talked about the core essentials to starting a club.
Fundraising, paperwork, and where and when the club plans to practice and have games. The difficult part about getting games is getting another club team to play because most have their schedule already.
The club’s plan right now is to have a few practices and four to six games this year then eventually expand on the club and raise funds for fall semester of 2014 to establish themselves as a club.
They held their first practice to take place on March 11 at Valley Forge’s field.
The good turnout of at least a starting nine and some bench players fielded grounders and work on the defense. They have plans to hit their next practice in the near future.
The Club’s overall plan is to generate enough funds and interest to eventually become an NCAA division III affiliated team within the next couple years. For more information contact Cole Kinsey at email@example.com.
