Playoffs for Spring League!

on

Minors are in it. Majors have settled. And Seniors have secured their spots. Welcome to the Spring 2024 Postseason.

Minors

In the minor league, the top four teams advance and play semi-final games on Saturday, June 8. The winners of those games play a best-of-three series to determine the champion.

Minors Semi-Finals @ Field 6

Inwood Pharmacy got the monkey off its back in the first semi-final game and defeated Inwood Social Club 13 to 4. Coach Matt Mead’s Pharmacy had not beaten Coach Glenn Gahrman’s Club in two years.

In the second game, emotions ran high and the game was close. Julio Albarran MD withstood the fifth-inning comeback from St. Joseph Council when Mason Gonzalez made a game-saving catch in left field. Albarran held on to win 6 to 5. Coach Kelvin Cordero took over Albarran MD this year and brought them from expansion obscurity to a top-seeded finals appearance. Coach John Lanning vowed to build on St. Joes success next season.

And perhaps we see a changing of the guard? The 2024 Spring Finals does not include Social Club or St. Joseph for the first time since 2019.

Majors

In the Majors, the top three teams advance. The 2nd and 3rd seeds play a one-game semi-final on June 10. The winner moves on to play the top seed in a best-of three series (over three days), starting June 12.

Majors Semi-Finals @ Field 6

Post 581 outlasted the Bucz on Monday, winning 13 to 11. According to Pizza Haven’s Coach Anthony Torres it was a “very entertaining game and both teams put on a good show.” The Bucz dugout energy may have been the highlight of the game. In fact it was steadily building throughout the game until Post’s right-fielder Enzo Santiago-Sosa zapped it in the bottom of the sixth inning, catching a moonshot to save the game for his team.

Post 581 will now meet Kenny Bakery in the 74th annual Spring League Major’s Final. Kenny’s pitchers have all their rest, but Post has the momentum of winning two knockout games in a row. If they hope to KO Kenny in the best-of-three series, they’ll need more plays like Santiago-Sosa’s from the whole lineup.

In the seniors, all teams advance to the postseason. The 1 and 4 seeds and the 2 and 3 seeds battle it out in single-elimination semi-finals on June 10 and June 11. Then the winners play a best-of-three series (over three days), starting June 13.

Seniors have two more regular-season games, but the playoff seeding has already been determined.
