THE NORTH JERSEY CARDINALS
IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT
FORMER BIG LEAGUE PITCHER
THE NORTH JERSEY CARDINALS FAMILY
AS DIRECTOR OF
THE PERISHO PITCHING SCHOOL!!!
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.
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."
