WEEQUAHIC PARK, NEWARK, NJ -- In a historic championship weekend that found the ABL Men's Softball League playing in December for the first time in it's 15 year history, an improbable champion emerged under the dark and rainy skies at Weequahic Park turf field in Newark, NJ. Balls Deep, who entered the playoffs with a 5-9 record and hadn't played since October 21st due to an unprecedented number of rainouts, emerged victorious in a thrilling championship series.
WEEQUAHIC PARK, NJ -- Bad Intentions flat out dominated Seton Smash! It was a miserable day on Sunday with the rain coming down all morning/afternoon. Seton Smash simply was running out of juice after defeating Tainos 1 game earlier. Bad Intentions were ready for either squad & didn't disappoint.
Game 1 was over in 5 innings. Bad Intentions scored 25 runs. 10 in the 3rd & 8 in the 5th. Home Runs came care of Milton, Darmento, Cutty & Matt with an Inside the Parker. BK on the mound was solid as well. He shut out Seton Smash for 2 straight innings before only giving up 7 runs total.
Final Score Game 1:
Bad Intentions 25
Seton Smash 7
Bad Intentions weren't done! This one was over in 4. Again, BK only let up 4 runs through 4 innings, pretty impressive on a turf field! Jude & Darmento (the # 3 & 4 batters) went a solid 5 for 5 with 5 run scored, 3 RBI's & 2 doubles. Mikey & Matt led the team with 3 RBIs each. Bad Intentions were just solid al around & put in a real team effort & clearly wanted this series more than Seton Outlaws.
Final Score Game 2:
Bad Intentions 16
Seton Outlaws 4
A big CONGRATS to Bad Intentions. It was a pleasure to cover the championship!
