YOUNG and old Ballpals cagers vowed to make Cagayan de Oro’s most popular ballclub to look even better in the coming years.

“We’re now back at our Palaro homecourt so mo-cooperate `tang tanan nga mas mabibo pa atong mga padula in Year 2019,” said the fresh-from-Japan Joven Agudo on Monday night’s Christmas party and awards rites of the

time-tested Ballpals.

Club president Mark Mercado hopes to convince the Pelaez Sports Center management in giving favor to a request for time adjustment for their regular games on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

“Instead nga 3 to 5 p.m., ato hangyoon ang management nga mabalhin sa 5 to 7 p.m. atong time slot para daghan ang makadula especially sa mga tigulang nga dili mosukol og init,” Mercado told the club members.

From the statistical points of tournament director Andit Mendoza, the streak-shooting Rojemar Namoc from 39-below champion Team Sumanga and the bull-strong Michael Pamisa from 40-up titlist Team were adjudged as the pre-Christmas tourney’s Most Valuable Players.

Aside from the MVP plaques, all members of the winning teams also received medals, courtesy of honorary club member GAT Tamayo from the NBI-10 and NMR-5’s Opol Eagles Club.

Joining Agudo among the past club presidents who attended the momentous event were host Bado Legaspi of Barbecue Station, Barangay 16 chair Danilo Guevara, Jojo Udasco and Stev Panaz. (LLS)
