Congratulations to the Joplin Crawdads of the Atlantic Coast Baseball League for winning the World Series in season number three. The champs beat the Merrimack Owls in four straight games to obtain the title. Charlie Leibrandt took home MVP honors after tossing the Crawdads to two victories in the series.
Roger Bresnahan hitting for the cycle in game number 3, and a strong series from league MVP Billy Hamilton were not enough for the overwhelmed Owls.
For those of you who do not know, I am talking about All-Star Baseball… A board game that Ryan, Sam (when he is around) and I play from time to time. The Falcons and Owls are my teams… The Mudhens and Crawdads are Ryan’s… and the Wildcats and Mustangs are Sam’s. There is a link to the right of the page if you want to learn more about the nerdiest thing that I do.
