Cranbrook, Kimberley reviving baseball rivalry

Kimberley A's prevail at latest contest at Coronation Ballpark. Next game Tuesday, August 16 in Cranbrook

Scotty Jacobson of the Cranbrook Sox makes contact during Tuesday's game against the Kimberley A's.

Senior Men’s Baseball is back in Cranbrook and Kimberley, and the rivalry is heating up.

Tuesday, August 9, the Kimberley A’s and the Cranbrook Sox went head to head at Coronation Ballpark in Kimberley, and the A’s came out on top.

Cranbrook took a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but the A’s rallied and built a big 9-3 lead. The Sox threatened throughout, with aggressive baserunning, and made it 9-4 before the light began to fade in the seventh inning. But it was official, and now Cranbrook is looking for revenge when the two teams next meet in Cranbrook, at Confederation Park, Tuesday, August 16. Game time 6:30 p.m.

Both teams are comprised of many former players of the Cranbrook Bandits. So come out and take in some baseball action played in great baseball weather.
