*Wins season tiebreaker
July 1, 2015: ....and then there was 1 (Both Divisions). Respectively speaking, 2 teams went at it in the 13-15 year old division but only one emerged victorious. The Yankees played against the Dodgers and took the game to them with clutch hitting, impressive pitching and great defense winning the 2015 13-15 year old Division Sparks City Championship by a score of 11 to 5. Congratulations to the particpating teams especially the winning Manager and Coaches, Mike Mahoney, Matt Mahoney and Hunter Koch!
The Senior tournament is also completed its first full season run by crowning its first ever Champion in the 16-18 year old division! The Sr. Red team and Black team went at it head to head in a great game of tit for tat until inevitably, pitching won out! With the Black team pitching exhausted, the RED team hung in there coming back from a 3 to 1 deficit to pull out the win in the last inning by a score of 5 to 3! Both teams showed great poise, a solid defense and clutch hitting throughout the game but this thriller went down to the wire and crowned a new 16-18 year old league Champ, Senior Red team!!! Congratulations goes out to all Senior league teams who particpated in a very trying but successful season and special kudos to the Red team Manager and Coach, Elisha Zayas and Bob Bailey!
