LDBA Playoff Champions!
Submitted By Bob Caron on Monday, August 26, 2013
Congratulations to our boys on wrapping up a successful LDBA season by capturing the playoff title in convincing fashion.

After receiving a Friday night bye, our boys came out on Saturday morning and played their typical 8am game - flat!  It was a hotly contested affair between the two teams that had its share of controversy.  Our baseball hygiene was called into question, but we persevered.  Coach 'Jedi' Bob was not there to calm the forces when things began to get heated - but we were able to escape with the win before things boiled over. Whew!

Game two pitted us against the tournament dark horse, EBBA.  Again we played a little flat, and gave up a few more runs than we'd have liked.  Our bats woke up late, and we managed to escape with the win.  This set up a rematch with our arch-rivals from North on Sunday morning.

The 10:30am start time must be the ticket for our boys, as they came to play on Sunday.  North pulled out some extra coaching staff in order to shake things up, and possibly pull the upset.  But it wasn't to be, as our kids played excellent defensive baseball (aka Tincaps D!), shutting down their running game.  This was capped off by Blueberry hosing their runner at home on a great throw to Cooper 2.2 who blocked access to the plate magnificently!  We ended up crushing the North dream with a convincing 11-1 win, and knocking them from the tournament.

This set up a final rematch with EBBA once again.  They would have to defeat us twice to win the title, but our boys squashed that hope in short order.  We put up 14 runs in the first two innings, and cruised to a 17-4 championship final win.

This caps off a great LDBA season - with only one more weekend of baseball to go.  It was a great tune-up to get back into tourney mode.  Lets keep it rolling into OBA's.  Kitchener, here we come!
