This month saw the regular season come to close and the playoffs begin.
After a full slate on the February 3rd, and the final makeup doubleheader on the 10th between Morty's and Brew House, the playoff picture was set. With an impressive 23-5 line, The Big Bite was this year's #1 seed and regular season champ. Milbank completed their remarkable regular season run, going 21-1 in their final 11 doubleheaders, finishing with an overall record of 21-7 and the #2 seed. TBB's Andrew Wallis led the league in hits, while Brew's Rich Granara led in homers with 6. Chris Ivany led just about every pitching category, as The Big Bite's go-to hurler.
After a week break for Chinese New Year, the playoffs began on the 24th. #4 Starr and #5 Shore split their doubleheader, #2 Milbank swept #7 Outback, and #3 Brew House swept #6 Morty's. #8 Santa Fe and #1 Big Bite will begin their playoffs Mar3. As we begin March, six teams remain in the fight for this year's Bollenger Cup.
Congratulations to Brew House's John So and Santa Fe's Karen Morais on the Player of the Week honors for this month. And all 17 of the POTW winners this season! Beer always tastes a bit better when it's a prize :)
