HALL OF CHAMPIONS

PAYING HOMAGE TO OUR PAST
MAJORS

2007 INDIANS   8-9-1
***Fighting against tough odds, our first league champion had to participate against stronger, older competition in the Springfield Parks league along with the Athletics and Phillies in our initial year.  They went on to capture the World Series winning 3 games and tying one over the four game tourney.  The final game featured a 3 to 2 win over the Athletics and included two double plays and a triple play.

2008 METS   15-4
***In our first year of exclusive play the Mets ran out to an early lead in the National league finishing 10-4 in the regular season.  They handed the AL champion Royals their only loss in the regular season before entering what would be a tough NL playoff set.  After posting three victories they had to hold off a tough Braves team 2-1 to advance to the Championship game against the AL winning Royals.  The Championship game featured a strong pitching duel.  All the game's runs were scored in the second inning when the Mets scored 5 and the Royals scored 3.  The final out came with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth for the Royals.

2009 DODGERS   13-4-2
***In moving to Price Cutter Park, the competition stiffened with added teams.  The Dodgers jockeyed with the Rockies for the NL lead most of the season finishing with the league's best record at 10-3-1 in the regular season.  The playoffs started "rocky" at best after the upstart Cardinals handed the Dodgers an early defeat, but they rebounded with two wins and an improbable comeback from a 10 run deficit to tie the Rockies in the final NL playoff game and earn a trip to meet the AL champion Tigers for the title.  The title game was once again a pitchers' duel with only a single run scored in the first three innings.  The Tigers scored twice in the top of the 4th to briefly take the lead, but the Dodgers responded with a pair of runs themselves.  They then held off the Tigers in the fifth to preserve a 3-2 victory.

2010 White Sox   15-4
***The 2010 Majors included eight teams and the White Sox battled most of the season for control of the AL with the Twins.  In the preliminary round of the World Series, the White Sox won their first two contests before being upset by the Orioles.  This set up a head-to-head match with the Twins to decide a trip to the title game.  They defeated the Twins 5-2 to move on to the final against the NL winning Giants.  After giving up a run in the top of the first, the White Sox plated 4 with two outs in their side of the frame.  From then on good pitching and defense prevailed for both teams.  Each scored only one more time and the Giants stranded the bases loaded in the fourth and fifth giving the White Sox a 5-2 win and the title.

2011 Colt 45's   11-7-1
***The 2011 Majors once again featured 8 teams in our first ever "retro season".  The Colt 45's were early leaders in the NL until late in the regular season when they were edged in a tie-breaker by the Cardinals for the #1 seed.  After two big wins over the Expos and Padres, they lost a tough head-to-head game against the Cards in the World Series.  They then put up a shutout of the Padres to advance to the title game against the AL champion Senators.  Once again a pitchers' duel had the game at only 2-1 going into the fifth inning.  There the Colt's plated 5 runs to put the game out of reach, reverting to the final 2-1 score and earning their title.

2012 RANGERS   17-2
The Majors went to single division play in 2012 with six teams competing.  The Rangers dominated play from start to end of the regular season going 12-2.  They entered as the top seed in pool play where they met and easily defeated the 4,5, & 6 seeds before inching past the third seeded Red Sox 6-5.  An improbable foe waited in the final when the sixth seeded Diamond Backs used a 3-1 pool play record to earn the other spot.  The game opened scoreless until the D Backs scored 3 in the top of the 2nd.  The Rangers responded with 5 in the bottom of the 2nd and 2 in the 3rd to gain a 7-3 advantage.  From there they held the Diamond Backs scoreless and won the title, tying the best record in league history in the process.

2013 BRAVES 12-5-2
The six teams in the 2013 Majors played possibly the most balanced season ever with every team winning at least seven games.  The Braves were one of four teams that jockeyed for 1st in the regular season, but they entered the World Series as the #1 seed.  After opening with an easy win over the Marlins, they lost a tight game to the #5 seed White Sox before rebounding with wins against the Cubs and Reds.  From there they entered the final against the #2 seed Rays.  The Rays plated single runs in the 1st and 3rd before the Braves rallied with 3 in the bottom of the 4th.  The Rays scored a single run to tie in the top of the 6th and final inning.  The Braves then advanced a runner to 3rd with one out and a grounder up the middle knocked in the winner and made the Braves champs.

2014 SENATORS 17-1-1
The 2014 Majors focused on six teams from 1949.  The Senators took the reigns early in the standings and only suffered one loss and one tie all season.  In the preliminaries of the Series they won three tight ballgames against the Phillies, Browns, & Yankees before ending with a relatively easy win against the third seeded Dodgers.  In the final they met the only team to defeat them all season, the #2 seed Cardinals.  The Cards scored once in the first for their only lead of the night but stayed close most of the game.  After 2 1/2 the game was tied at 2 before the Senators plated 3 in the bottom of the 3rd.  After a scoreless 4th, the Cards closed to 5-3 only to have the Senators score 4 in the bottom of the fifth to win by run-rule 9-3.

2015 PIRATES 15-5
The 2015 Majors featured seven teams from the 1970's.  The Pirates battled most of the regular season with the Expos at the top of the standings, finishing with the #2 seed.  In the World Series they opened with close wins against the Orioles and Mariners before losing to the 3rd seeded Padres.  They finished with an easy win over the Twins before entering the first ever semifinals. In the semis they knocked off the top seeded Expos and moved on to play the #4 seed Blue Jays for the championship.  The game started with the Pirates scoring three times in the bottom of the first to which the Jays responded with one run in the second.  From that point forward neither team scored again in the first ever seven inning final.  Pirates won the game and the title 3-1.

2016 REDS 15-5
The 2016 Majors took the six teams all the way back to the Turn of the Century (1900-1909).  The Reds ran off 5 straight wins to start the season and basically led the Majors from wire to wire, going 12-3.  In the World Series their fortunes changed when they were quickly beaten by the 6th seeded Doves and then again in extra innings by the 4th seeded Senators.  They stayed alive however by beating the Cardinals to enter the semi finals as the fourth seed.  Rematching with the Senators, the Reds came from behind early to win 13-6 to advance to the Championship against the #3 seed Tigers.  As visitors in the game, the Reds jumped out early to a 9-1 lead after two innings.  Good pitching and defense kept the Tigers from mounting any rallies and after opening a 12 -3 lead going into the sixth, they plated two runs to win on margin and revert to the 12-3 final and get their championship. 

2017 INDIANS 18-2
The 2017 Majors traveled into the 1960's and featured six teams again.  The Indians rattled off 10 consecutive wins to start the season and quickly established themselves as the team to beat in the division.  Finishing 14-1 they entered the Series as the top seed where they quickly started with a win over the 6th seeded Athletics.  They then stumbled to a 3-2 loss to the 5th seeded Colts and then edged the 4th seeded Phillies in extra innings.  In the semis it was a rematch with the Colts who they this time defeated 10-7 to move on to another rematch with the Phillies.  The Indians started the seven inning final by plating two runs in the first which held up until the Phillies rallied with 4 in the top of the 4th.  The Indians quickly responded with 4 of their own in the bottom of the inning and held a 6-4 lead.  The Phillies added one more run in the 6th to cut the lead to 6-5, but the Indians held on in the 7th, leaving the tying run at third and securing the 2017 Title.

SENIORS

2009 ORIOLES  10-6-2
***In the initial year of the Senior league, the balance between the two teams was evident all season long.  This culminated in the best of seven World Series where the Orioles jumped out to a 2-0 advantage before surrendering games 3 & 4 to the Padres.  After eeking out a tough game 5 win, the Orioles broke loose in a game 6 blowout earning our first ever Senior title.

2010 ROCKIES  11-3-3
***The second Senior season was marked by growth to 5 teams.  After battling all season with the Mets and Red Sox, the Rockies earned the top seed entering the World Series.  There they survived a tough set of 4 games with a 2-1-1 record losing to the upstart Cardinals and tying the Rangers, but getting two key wins against their primary rivals.  They then entered the Championship Game as visitors against a tough Mets team.  In a back and forth affair, the game ended regulation tied 3-3.  In extra innings each team scored a pair in the 6th and then the Rockies added two in the 7th before holding the Mets to only one.  The final score 7-6.

2011 YANKEES 12-6-1
***The Yankees started the 2011 season by getting blown out in the season's first game by the Braves.  From there they battled with three other teams for 1st to 4th all season finishing 2nd in the regular season.  In the World Series they went 3-1 posting the best record in pool play with three 1-run wins over the Dodgers, Indians, and Braves and an extra inning loss to the Browns.  They met the top seed Dodgers in the final and quickly fell behind 4 runs in the top of the first.  Capitalizing on some mistakes they rallied back with 5 in the bottom of the first.  From there good pitching held the Dodgers to 1 run and the Yankees added 2 in the third and one in the 4th to win 8-5 and capture the title.

2012 RAYS 11-6-2
***The 2012 Senior season featured five teams and the Rays spent a good portion of the season hovering around the .500 mark before finishing on a 3-1-1 run to secure the second seed entering the World Series.  In the Series they opened with a loss against the Athletics before going on a run of three decisive victories against the Nationals, Astros, & Tigers, outscoring the opposition 33-1.  The Championship opened with the third seeded Nats taking a 1-0 lead before the Rays pulled ahead 2-1.  A Nationals rally put them up 5-2 in the third, but the Rays responded with 3 of their own to tie the game.  In the bottom of the 4th, the Rays added two and then held the Nats to earn the title with a 7-5 victory.
 
2013 MARINERS 17-2
***The 2013 Senior season featured six teams for the first time.  The Mariners opened the season with a win at Opening Ceremonies and never looked back going 13-1 in the regular season.  They opened the Series with two shutouts of the Cardinals and Rockies before edging the 4th seeded Rangers 5-3 and losing to the 3rd seeded Twins.  The Championship paired the Mariners against the #2 seed Diamond Backs.  The game was scoreless until the Mariners plated two in the bottom of the third.  The D Backs responded with 3 in the 5th before the Mariners evened it with a single run in the bottom of the 6th.  The game remained tied into extra innings where the Mariners scored the winning run on a two-out bases loaded wild pitch in the bottom of the 8th.  Final score 4-3.

2014 ATHLETICS 17-2
***The 2014 Senior season featured six teams from 1964 and wood bats only. The Athletics won on Opening Day and never looked back, holding the top spot all season.  In the Series they started with tough wins against the Orioles and Reds.  They then cruised past the Pirates before winning a tough 1-run game against the third seeded Colts.  That set up the final against the #2 seed White Sox.  The A's started the Championship with 3 runs in the bottom of the first and held a 3-0 lead into the 4th.  There the Sox scored twice in both the 4th and 5th to take a 4-3 lead.  Neither team scored again until the A's scored a run with one out in the bottom of the 7th and then won the game on a two out run scoring single.  Final score, 5-4 Athletics.

2015 GIANTS 13-5-1
***The 2015 Senior season featured six teams from the 1930's & wood bats again. The Giants got off to a strong start and pretty much held the #1 seed all season finishing 10-3-1 in the regular season.  In the World Series they ran into quick trouble losing to the upstart #6 seed Red Sox before beating the Browns.  They then lost a tight game against the #4 seed Braves before edging the Dodgers.  Their 2-2 mark edged them into the final on tiebreaker as the road team against the #6 seed Red Sox who had gone 4-0.  The Red Sox struck first with 3 runs in the bottom of the first, but the Giants chipped back in and trailed 4-2 going into the 5th inning.  In the top of the fifth the Giants scored 5 times and held a 7-5 lead until the Red Sox scored 5 in the bottom of the 6th.  Trailing 10-7, the Giants then got 5 of their own again in the 7th and held the Red Sox to win the title 12-10.

2016 ASTROS 17-3
***The 2016 Senior league featured six teams from the 1980's.  The Astros battled for most of the early part of the regular season with the Expos for first and second and then pulled safely in to the top spot near the end.  Entering the World Series as the top seed they opened with three games against the bottom three seeds.  After edging the sixth seed White Sox in an 8-7 walk off win, they won on margin against both the Phillies and Padres.  In the first Senior semi-finals, they rematched the fourth seeded Phillies and won 9-2.  From there they advanced to the final against the third seeded Brewers.  After two scoreless innings, the Astros exploded to a 9-0 lead after four.  The Brewers then responded with 4 in the 5th before the Astros scored one in the bottom.  The Brewers then added 5 more in the top of the 6th to close to 10-9.  After failing to score in the bottom of the 6th, the Astros held on for a scoreless 7th, stranding the tying run at third and earning the title, 10-9.
 
2017 BROWNS 10-8-2
***The 2017 Seniors took the league's first trip into the 1910's with six teams.  The Browns started off with two wins and tie before a tail spin had them sitting in dead last around mid-season.  Finishing strong, the Browns were able to rally and get the #4 seed in the Series.  They opened by winning a slugfest over the #3 Tigers before falling to the top seed Highlanders.  A shutout of the #5 seed Cubs set them up in the semis against the #2 seed Cardinals.  They won another slugfest 19-11 to advance to the Championship against an unlikely foe in the #6 seed Dodgers.  A pair of runs in each of the first two innings had the Browns up 4-1, but after giving up 1 in the 3rd and two more in the 4th, the game was tied 4-4.  They regained the lead with one in the fifth to only be tied by one in the top of the 6th by the Dodgers.  Then in the seventh, the Dodgers tallied twice to take a 7-5 lead, but the Browns responded with three of their own to become the first team seeded lower than a #2 to win an upper league title.  Final 8-7.


MINORS

2011 REDS   9-5-4
***In the first year of the Minors the two teams competed in a 14 game season that saw the Reds go 6-4-4 against the rival Royals.  They then began a best-of-5 World Series in which the Reds started with a game one blowout before losing game 2.  They then put up an impressive win in game 3 before the Royals pushed back in game 4.  The Reds grabbed an early lead and then had to hold off a late charge by the Royals who came back from a 6-1 deficit to close to 6-4 leaving the tying runs in scoring position when the last out was made and the title went to the Reds.


2012 CUBS   16-2-1
***The second year of the Minors saw expansion to 5 teams.  The Cubs opened their season with a loss versus the Angels but would only lose one more game the entire regular season.  In the World Series the Cubs opened by rallying from behind to beat the Angels and winning a tough 2-0 pitcher's duel with the Rockies.  Their next two wins were easier before moving on to the Championship game against the Mariners.  The Cubs plated two in the bottom of the first before the pitching settled down and the Mariners scored a single run in the third.  In the bottom of the third the Cubs rallied for 5 runs opening a 7-1 lead.  They then held the Mariners in the top of the 4th to close out the game on margin and capture the title. 

2013 YANKEES   11-6-2
***The third Minors season saw growth to six teams.  The Yankees  moved around among the top spots during the regular season finishing with the #3 seed.  They opened the World Series with tough wins over the Blue Jays and Athletics before clinching a trip to the final with an easy win over the Phillies.  They then lost a 1-0 game to the Giants setting up a rematch in the final.  In the Championship game the Giants scored a single run in the top of the 1st.  From there noone scored again until the Yankees answered with one run of their own in the bottom of the 3rd.  The Yanks then scored 4 in the 4th only to have the Giants respond with 4 in the 5th.  In the first 6-inning final, neither team scored again until extra innings when both plated two in the 7th and then with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 8th, a walk ended the game and gave the Yanks an 8-7 win.

2014 BRAVES   14-4-1
***The 2014 Minors season featured teams from the 1970's and the first use of wood bats only.  The Braves had a battle for first with the Expos and then the Astros all season.  They finished the top seed in the Minors.  In the World Series, they started with two 1-run wins over the Red Sox & Brewers.  They then beat the Rangers before eeking out another 1-run win over the Expos.  They met the #2 seed Astros in the final.  The Astros scored one in the top of the first to which the Braves responded with two in the bottom.  Both teams next scored three each in the 4th before the Astros scored a tying run in the top of the 5th.  In the 6th, the Astros scored two to take a 7-5 lead before the Braves rallied with two out and a man on first to score three times in the bottom of the sixth and capture the title, 8-7.
