The Cabrini Baseball Club participated in an intense baseball tournament in Cape May, N.J. on Sunday, Sept. 23.
The 20 dedicated team members and returning coach Will Harmon, woke up and left the college at 5:30 a.m. to head to the tournament in two Cabrini vans.
The team played three, five inning games throughout the day.
The first game at 8:30 a.m. was against Rutgers, New Brunswick Baseball Club. The Cavaliers’ pitcher Matt Gledhill had several strikeouts against Rutgers. However with little run support, Cabrini fell 6-1.
The second game was at 12 p.m. against The College of New Jersey Baseball Club. Anthony Vellutato hit a double and Tim Hoban hit a single allowing two runs in the bottom of the fifth, resulting in a Cabrini win 11-10.
The third game was at 1:30 p.m. against Atlantic Cape Community College. Steve Klapy pitched and Matt Warren hit a triple. A solid effort was put in from the team and all of the new freshmen players saw action in the field. The game ended in a tie 5-5.
Cabrini alumni and former baseball club member Mark Tripolitsiotis sponsored the Cabrini Baseball team’s entry into the tournament. The team is very thankful to him, Coach Harmon, the supporting parents and fans, as well as the club managers Jennifer Brace and Katie Moore.
They would also like to thank Bruce Bryde, a volunteer for the Cabrini Baseball Club and a former assistant coach of Widener University’s Baseball Team, for his time and instruction.
The team will be playing doubleheaders on Sunday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 7 at Eastern University at 12 p.m. and invite anyone who is interested to come out and watch the games.
