September 2018 Summary

Softball is back!

We returned to King's Park for the first time this season for the inaugural John Cooper Invitational Tournament on September 6th. Dozens of rookies and league veterans alike joined together to honor the legendary Coop, who passed away this last spring. As a final practical joke from Coop, the rain poured mightily throughout the day. Nevertheless, we completed the tourney with Cooperstown defeating Stormies in the championship game.

The regular season kicked of on the 22nd, with all eight teams playing a doubleheader. In a rematch of the last two years' Finals, Milbank swept defending champs The Big Bite. John "Juice" DelGiudice was named the season's first Player of the Week.
