In the Major League Tournament finals, the Attack capped a successful season with a 5-3 victory in the playoff final against the Nightmare. The Attack defense was solid throughout the game with pitchers Sydney Silverstein and Lane Brickley allowing only three runs in a tightly contested, back and forth battle. The Attack hitters were able to break the game open in the third inning on a run scoring hit by Lane Brickley followed by a home run from Elle Shores. The game capped a successful season for the Attack who also won the regular season in Majors. During the year, the team received contributions throughout the line-up. Congratulations to the Attack, 2015 regular season and playoff Majors Champions!

With a hard-fought 6-4 victory over the Jaguars in the championship game on May 7, Shake-n-Bake ended a remarkable season in the NYO Senior League.  Shake-n-Bake started the year with consecutive losses (scores of 10-9 and 11-10 respectively), then bounced back to win 14 games in a row!  The team's resurgence was led by pitcher Anna Freeman.  After a rocky early season, Freeman performed better with each passing game.  The highlight of her season was a 16-strikeout, complete game against a talented Bulldogs lineup in a 6-3 Shake-n-Bake win late in the year.  Shake-n-Bake relied on consistent offensive production from Presley Marxmiller, Alana Ducre (1 homerun this year), Lucie Raley, Jenny Barnes and Sydney Katz (who may have turned Shake-n-Bake's season around with a two-out, game winning double to cap a 4-run comeback in the last inning against Cyanophobia).

Tornado Blue rallied for 3 runs in its last at bat to capture the Minors tournament championship 5-4 over the Rebel Grapes in a well-played, hard-fought title game. Madison Hadley and Josie Swain provided the big hits in the rally. Both teams had great pitching with Sydney Vincent and Quinn Schaeffer shining for the Grapes, and Leah Faser and Mackenzie Morris excelling for Tornado Blue. Catcher Liza Mobley had a great game for Tornado Blue, going 2-2 at the plate, throwing out a runner trying to steal third, and catching a foul-tipped third strike for a huge out in the Grapes' final at bat.

Tornado Blue had a slow start to the season, but the girls worked hard, kept a good attitude, and constantly improved. After winning only two of its first six games, Tornado Blue never lost again, reeling off 10 straight wins culminating with the victory in the championship game.

Congratulation to the Rebel Grapes for a great season, and to Tornado Blue for a well-deserved championship!
