ALL ABOARD! Yet another unbelievable evening at Tanglewood Stadium. Defying all the odds and coming out of the #15 slot in the tourney, The Whistle Stop Express pulled into CHAMPIONS Station, full steam ahead and whistles blaring, completing their magical run through the BBBL South SUPER WEDNESDAY tournament. WS Express 10 Rebels 7.
Speaking of the Rebels, this was a new team this season, basically put together on Opening night….so a big Congrats to the Rebels who were the #9 seed and put it all together in their great run to the Championship game.
WS EXPRESS 18 TOSS UPS 9
The WS Express met up with the 3 time defending BBBL South Champs Toss Ups in the Final Four, and quickly showed a team seemingly unbeatable in tournaments, that their dynasty was old news. Look out, Get Off the Tracks! WS Express punch their ticket to the Championship.
REBELS 20 FIRECRACKERS 17
The Rebels displayed scoring power they didn’t show all season and exploded for 20 runs at just the right time, knocking off the very hot Firecrackers in another upset on the evening. Our expansion Rebels head to the Championship!
WS EXPRESS 10 REBELS 7
The Championship game had a couple lead changes with the WS Express actually trailing the Rebels 7-5 after 4 innings. In what was almost a fitting finish for the Express, it was them who rallied and scored late, bringing 5 runs across in the 5th and 6th innings, grabbing the win and hoisting the BBBL South Crown.
We had another fun season! Thank You to all who helped make things much easier for me. To all the players who always broke down the courts after we played….Thank You! Special Thanks To Greg Plank, Tom Finochio and Bartley Rodgers who helped tremendously throughout the season. Thank You All!
