Fall Baseball 12/09/2017 2018 Triple Play Fall Ball season
Once again Triple Play had a...
Once again Triple Play had a successful fall ball season. We had 33 teams in 6 different divisions. The weather was excellent and we finished up with all schedules before the end of October except for the high school divisions. They finished up the first weekend in November.
We want to thanks Bolton Youth Baseball, Sterling LL and Clinton LL for the use of their fields and all the coaches and umpires who made this a great fall season.
The high school division had 7 teams and they ended the season with a single elimination tournament. The season was outstanding as many teams were very close together in the standings. In the semi finals Leominster, Coached by Jason Pare, played Triple Play Green, Coached by Chris Klingenberg, which was made up of Westford and Groton Dunstable players. In the other semi final was Triple Play White, Coached by Joe Schoolcraft/Charlie Ramsland, made up of Nashoba HS players against Acton Boxboro Gold, Coached by Mike Buonomo.
In the semi finals, Leominster ousted Triple Play Green in a close game and Triple Play White ousted Acton Boxboro Gold in a close game.
In the finals Leominster defeated Triple Play White 3-0 in 4 innings, called for darkness. Below are pictures of the winning Leominster Team and the runner ups, Triple Play White, for the third year in a row.
We hope you enjoyed the season and we want to thank everyone who participated and hope to see you all back next season.
