The regular season edition of the Blue Mountain League came to an end late last week.
After being relatively “rain free” for most of the season (which started in early May), the last three weeks of the season ended up being a “mess” for teams as they had a bunch of games rescheduled late in the season.
For example, the Avengers had eight games over the last ten days of the regular season–which hurt their playoff chances as they had to utilize a number of “brand new” rookie pitchers to pitch in several of their final games. The team ended up missing the playoffs and were edged out by Berlinsville.
The Orioles, however, fared well down the stretch–playing ten games in ten days and held onto the second position in the standings – ensuring a first round bye for the club.
We’ll have much more on the BML’s regular season along with a preview of ATVN’s coverage of their championship series coming up on next week’s edition of “ATVN SportsTalk.”
