Valley Blue Sox Clinch First NECBL Championship

9 Aug

For the first time in franchise history, the Valley Blue Sox captured the NECBL Title, defeating the Ocean State Waves 2-0 in a best-of-three series.  Game 1 of the series was called mid-game on August 7th due to rain, so they finished up the game on August 8th, and the Blue Sox pulled out a 9-3 win.  Game 2 of the series was played immediately after, and Michael Wroth hit one home run and drove in two in a 6-3 championship clinching victory for the team from Holyoke.  The Blue Sox finished the regular season at 26-18 and grabbed the #2 seed in the Northern Division and never looked back.  An opening round win over the Keene Swamp Bats was followed series sweeps of the Upper Valley Nighthawks and Waves, bringing the title to the Pioneer Valley.Blue Sox Champs
