In a project months in the making, the Knightly News Media Club livestreamed the first athletic event in college history on April 18 at In the Net in Palmyra, as the Knights Men’s Baseball team took on Valley Forge in a doubleheader.

Leading the charge on this initiative was Knightly News President Brian Christiana and Vice President Ian Kemmerer, along with assistance from Professor Paul Miller.

Christiana and Miller provided play-by-play for the doubleheader, and were joined at times by Title IX Officer Megan Peterson, Athletic Director Dave Baker, former Knightly News Vice President Yuliani Sutedjo, and many others.

Kemmerer provided the tech support, managing the camera and doing quality control.  Michael Ademola joined the group to provide photo support for the game.

The first game of the doubleheader is embedded below.  Follow our YouTube link later in the article for Game 2.

The Knights  had an offensive explosion during the first game of the tilt against Valley Forge, scoring 14 runs in the 4th inning en route to an 18 – 2 victory.  Quinton Heckard was named the inaugural Knightly News Player of the Game.

The Knights fell in game two 4 – 3 with Christian Fulp being named the Knightly News Player of the Game in a losing effort.

On the season, the Knights record is 10 and 13 with yesterday’s split, with Valley Forge falling to 4 and 22.

While this initiative has been planned for quite some time, the Knights have had 11 postponements or cancellations already this season due to the unseasonable temperatures and poor field conditions.

The Knightly News will be livestreaming four future games, with a doubleheader on April 20 at home against Christendom and a doubleheader on May 8 at home versus Manor College.
