BECOME A PART OF 

THE NORTH JERSEY CARDINALS FAMILY...

2021 SPRING/SUMMER TRYOUTS!!!

GREAT TRAINING WITH EXPERT COACHING

"I believe that playing sports not only builds character and confidence

but also gives student-athletes a sense of accomplishment" 

Coach Frank Dasti - Owner The North Jersey Cardinals

                  

 Our goal is to provide an environment that encourages athletes to develop on and off the playing field, to create a positive learning environment in good and bad times. Established in 2006 as an elite 18U organization with the likes of Rick Porcello, the program has grown into an organization with competitive and developmental teams from 9U to 18U.

 

We believe that a player's involvement in the program will help them to become more successful in life thru the education and exposure that we provide.

    

Players already in the organization do not need to attend tryouts

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 15U RED & 13U DODGERS FOR WINNING USABL MVP CLASSIC 2020!!!

AND TO OUR 13U RED TEAM RUNNER UP VS OUR 13U DODGERS USABL MVP CLASSIC

For the first time in the history of the North Jersey Cardinals organization, two Cardinals teams faced each other in a tournament championship game. The 13U Dodgers topped 13U Red in extra innings to close out a great fall season for both teams.

Sunday October 25, 2020 was a history-making day for our North Jersey Cardinals organization. For the first time ever, two Cardinals teams - 13U Dodgers and 13U Red - faced off in a championship game. To quote Director of Operations Frank Dasti when he addressed the teams, "this was a great, great baseball game." The game went into extra innings before the Dodgers squad finally prevailed, but this was the kind of athletic contest that the players and parents will talk about for years to come.

 

Cardinals 13U Championship Wrapup

NJ Little League's biggest fan is ... Juan Soto?

Juan Soto just can't stay away from the diamond.

The youngest batting champion in National League history traveled to New Jersey over the weekend to watch his nephew in a United States Amateur Baseball League 10-and-under tournament at North Edison Little League. Soto was there for two games Sunday, watching his nephew's New York Bluebirds out of Manhattan take the title with a 7-2 victory over The North Jersey Cardinals. 

"My coach told me that a guy in the stands was Juan Soto," Cardinals center fielder Patrick McKeever, 10, said. "And I didn't really believe it at first. My teammates kept trying to get me to look, and I realized it was him."

Did having one of Major League Baseball's young superstars at the game have an effect?

"Yeah," Patrick said. "I wanted to do better to impress him."
