NORTH CALDWELL – Originally known as the Suburban Knights, the contingent now known as the Summer Knights has posted an outstanding 18-2 mark in its first score of Essex County American Legion Baseball League outings and, in doing so, clinched the Essex/National Division championship.

That feat has earned the West Essex Regional-based locals a berth in the county’s championship game on Saturday, July 19, and their first ever trip to the New Jersey District Tournaments.

Heading into Tuesday’s games, the Essex/National Division standings showed the Summer Knights on top at 18-2, followed by Livingston at 16-5, South Orange at 12-7, Caldwell Post 185 at 12-8, Vailsburg (a/k/a Seton Hall Prep) at 12-10, Millburn at 6-14, Verona at 6-15 and Montclair at 4-16.
