It was good to see the junior final on a Sunday card. Over the year the KO junior final was on a Tuesday evening, the KO intermediate on a Thursday, while the senior KO final hasn’t even been played yet. The intermediate championship final is on a Saturday evening.

Yes the senior final will be on a Sunday also. Two out of six. Batting .333 is good for baseball, but only there.
