Crescent City Sports to live stream baseball games from Jesuit Invitational Saturday
NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City Sports begins its spring sports live streaming coverage Saturday with a pair of games from the Jesuit Invitational Tournament.
CCS will live stream the final two games of the day from John Ryan Stadium as Catholic High faces Archbishop Rummel at 3 p.m., followed by a matchup between Catholic and Jesuit at 5:30. Ken Trahan, longtime area coach Kenny Francingues and former major league pitcher Kirk Bullinger will describe the action Saturday.
All three programs are traditional baseball powers, combining for 29 state championships, including a state-record 20 by Jesuit, five by Rummel and four by Catholic. All have played for or won state titles in the last decade.
On the first day of the tournament Thursday, Catholic (3-2) defeated Archbishop Shaw 8-2 and Jesuit (7-0) defeated Belle Chasse 6-2. Rummel (2-1) opens tournament play Friday afternoon against East Ascension.
In action Saturday are several seniors who will continue their playing careers at the next level, including Catholic’s Mason Zambo, who signed with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette; the Rummel duo of Kyle Walker (Louisiana Tech) and Jake Cabeceiras (New Orleans), and Jesuit’s Collin Loupe (UNO) and Zach Casebonne (Dartmouth).
The Jesuit Invitational Tournament has been held regularly at John Ryan Stadium since the stadium opened in March 2012.
The Crescent City Sports team is in its 10th season of producing live broadcasts for television and internet, having produced broadcasts of more than 300 live games since 2012, and is continuing its extensive commitment to prep sports coverage on its website for 2020-21. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce additional events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
