Season Closes to an End with 13 Playoff Champs to be Crowned
Tuesday update: In a twice delayed game due to our lightning sirens going off, the first of now two Majors championship games saw the Cubs pull away from the Red Sox to force a winner take all "final" final on Wednesday night on FOD with a pushed up 6:30 start. And then the season will conclude on Thursday with the annual Majors intra-league all star game for 11's and 12's on FOD at 6:30. Come on by the field both nights for some great action and the closing games of the year
Monday update: This crazy season is close to an end with champions crowned Monday night. Action began on FOD in the early game as the Rangers came back to defeat the Royals and complete their undefeated run to the AA Gold Championship. Action continued on that field as the International D-Backs held on in a tight finish to put away the Mets and capture the International crown. Meanwhile over on Garr, the Cards backed up their regular season crown with a solid win over the Dodgers in the Pony National championshiip. And finally on Wilkins, making the day long wait well worth, it the Pirates and Yankees battled for nearly 5 hours over 15 innings of epic baseball as the Pirates pulled out a 7 inning win in game 2 to take the Bronco crown. The regular season champ Yankess battled hard to take game 1 in 8 innings in a seesaw affair, but the Pirates were able to storm back from an early defecit to catch the Yanks and take the game 2 lead for good in the top of the 7th. It was a night to be remembered and a great close to the 12 year old season for so many wonderful famillies in our program.
Sunday update: Thanks to all who pitched in today to help get the games in. And thanks to all the players and parents for hanging in with us on what was probably the craziest day we ever seen (to close out the rainiest season we have ever had). It was not only great to see some great baseball out there (in the 8 of 11 games we were able to get in), but also really iimpresive to see how flexible and patient everyone was as we fought threw an afternoon of rain, sirens and occasional sun. See the revised schedule below.
