The Amherstburg Minor Baseball Association (AMBA) is bringing back a select team and that team has been fundraising for future action.


The Cardinals’ 9U team was at Amherstburg Buick Chevrolet GMC last Saturday hosting a car wash and barbecue. Sammy Brush, a parent and assistant coach, said the players were selected after tryouts among the three house league 9U teams.


“This is our first select team in quite a while,” she said. “It’s sort of split between the three teams.”


There are 12 players and two alternates on the Amherstburg Cardinals 9U select team. The proceeds from events like last Saturday’s car wash/barbecue go to fund tournament fees and whatever expenses they encounter.


The team’s head coaches are Mike Matheson and Andrew Brush.


The Cardinals 9U team will play this weekend in a tournament in Forest Glade and have a second tournament Aug. 9-11 in south Windsor.


They also host a pair of games against Turtle Club from LaSalle, with a July 22 game being at Bill Wigle Park and a July 29 game at Malden Centre Park. Those two games both start at 6:15 p.m.


Any baseball team wishing to send in photos and game results are invited to do so by e-mailing them to mail@rivertowntimes.com.
