A week ago at this time, the thought of a high school baseball game taking place in this area seemed weeks away. Thanks to a few days of seasonable temperatures, however, Calvert Hall was able to kick off its 2015 baseball campaign on Thursday afternoon as it traveled to Washington, DC to battle St. John’s College.

The Cardinals, thanks to five innings of shutout ball from senior pitcher Nick Delp, and Delp’s RBI in the fifth inning, pulled out a 1-0 victory.

Delp struck out three and combined with Bradley Weber to allow just one hit to the Cadets.
