AdU Athletes Dominate UAAP Open Field Games

8th Baseball Title, 9th Softball Crown, and a Notable Record by one of Adamson’s basemen Marvin Malig—success pours in three.

To play on in spite of the scorching heat, to strategize and outwit equally clever opponents, and to be motivated despite far-from-lavish resources were crucial factors that led to the well-deserved victory of the University’s Baseball and Softball Teams. Both Adamson Teams celebrated their feats in the UAAP 71st Season.

 

Rizal Memorial baseball stadium became witness as King Falcons hit the Ateneo Blue Eagles the hardest they could, marking a faultless 12-0. The Falcon basemen’s victory is the team’s 8th, following those reaped by their predecessors in 1987, 1988, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, and 1999.

 

20-year-old Marvin Malig, a native of Nueva Ecija, gave the University a distinct honor by stamping his name in the UAAP record book—becoming the first man in the history of local baseball to belt out three homers in one game. He humbly enthused, “My goal was just to help our team win. My timing was just right, and I’m very proud to be part of baseball history.”

 

Meanwhile, the University of Sto Tomas’s field became the venue of the Lady Falcons and University of the Philippines softball clash, making the former regain its title. In 2008, the Fighting Maroons stole Adamson’s would-be fifth straight title in UAAP. The Lady Softbelles already have a pair of 4-peats, first in 1997- 2000 and from 2004 to 2007. Cloienne Muyco, the Softbelle’s star player and arguably the country’s top pitcher, ended her sterling UAAP career again being hailed as this UAAP Season’s MVP.

 

What could be the worth-emulating se cret behind this incessant success? Both Anna Santiago (Softbelles’ coach) and Orlando Binarao (Falcon Basemen’s coach) attributed their victories to the School’s intensified talent-recruitment from the provinces, which they learned from former head coach and baseball-softball legend Filomeno “Boy” Codinera. “Matagal na kaming naging player ni coach Boy at marami kaming natutuhan sa kanya, maging sa paglalaro at sa pagrerecruit ng players,” Binarao and Santiago chorused when asked by a local broadsheet.
