18+ Division: Naturals vs. Dodgers
The Naturals defeated the Dodgers in what was a tight game! It was a battle of the pitchers, and both teams had some wonderful defense on display. Some big, timely hits helped them get the job done!
Congratulations to the MVP, Josh Carpenter!!
30+ Division: Nationals vs. Padres
The rivalry between the Nationals and the Padres continued as they faced off yet again in the Championship Game! In a narrow 5-4 thriller, the Nationals took home the title for their 11th time, which is a Legends record!! This marks their second win in a row over the Padres after defeating them in last year’s Fall Championship game!
The Padres carried a 4-3 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Nationals were up to bat. The inning started with a quick out, followed by a base hit to right field by Rich Goad. Al Torres replaced Rich as a pinch runner and made his way to second base after the next hitter got thrown out at first. At this point, the Nationals had 2 outs and were still trailing by a run. Al Torres advanced to third after the Padres overthrew their baseman, and Mark Orlando walked onto first. With a runner on first and third base, Tyler Easterly stepped up to the plate. The pitch came in, and Tyler swung his bat, making contact with the ball. It was a line drive to right center field, which allowed Al to score easily! 4-4! Meanwhile, the ball was coming in as Mark rounded third base! He slid as the ball arrived at home plate and touched the plate just seconds before the catcher could make the tag! He was SAFE and the team stormed the field in celebration!! The Nationals won the game with a final score of 5-4! What an exciting finish!
Congratulations to the MVP, Tyler Easterly!!
40+/30+B Division: Grays vs. Brewers
The Grays defeated the Brewers in what was their first Championship win with Legends! After going behind 5-2 in the seventh inning, the Grays could have easily given up, but they battled back! Now that’s the spirit of a true champion! The Grays took advantage of the Brewers’ pitching situation and started putting up runs one at a time to come back and win the game! As coach Paul said, “Obviously this crew is special.”
Congratulations to the MVP, Brook Minnick!!
