On March 8 students, faculty and community members gathered together to watch Cabrini’s baseball team play their first ever game on their brand new turf field against Eastern University.

The lineup consisted of six different players to record at least one RBI in the game. Sophomore Tyler Norris leaded the Cavs with two runs, two RBIs, three hits and three ABs finishing the day with 3-3.

The Cavs opened the scoring in the bottom half of the second against the Eagles. Norris worked out a walk and moved into scoring position allowing for Casey Plunkett to walk and Jesse James Murphy to lay down a sac bunt to advance the runners to second and third.

Alex DelGiudice was able to hit it, bringing Norris home for the games first run. The Eagles caught up to five hits in the half of the inning and pushed three runs to take the lead.

The bottom of the fifth allowed for the Cavs to redeem the lead. DelGiudice took a double to the left center as Dohar followed with a walk to put the runners on first and second.

A fielding error by the shortstop allowed for Cabrini’s next hitter, Dylan Butler, to reach safely on what should of been a routine grounder. Norris followed up with a single up the middle pushing the Cavs back in the lead.

Ending the fifth inning with a 8-3 lead Cabrini the game was then called to close at the seventh inning due to darkness.

The Cavs ended with their final two runs as Dohar took advantage of the Eagle’s oblivious pitcher and stole home followed by Vicario attempting to slide onto home plate and seeming to have his foot blocked by the catcher but the catcher never applied the tag as and Vicario casually stepped on the plate to score.

“Defensively we are still hurting ourselves with errors on routine plays,” head coach Nick Weisheipl said. “Luckily we got some timely hits to make up for the miscues and our pitchers kept us in it.”

The Cavs brought home a 12-6 win to their new field and is eager to continue on their season. Being the first ever Cabrini baseball team the Cabrini community is very excited to cheer on the Blue Diamonds this season.

“The team members enjoy being around each other and take a lot of pride in being the first ever,” Weisheipl said. “It’s something they hold in high regard and hope to be the example of what a Cabrini team should look like and act like, on the field and off.”
