Southeastern PA's Premiere Sunday Men's League
2014 LIBERTY BELL MENS BASEBALL LEAGUE
The Liberty Bell Men's Baseball League is committed to providing an opportunity to play real baseball at a competitive level on a regular basis in a professionally managed environment. LBMBL welcomes new teams and players and offers new friendships and business contacts that extend beyond the seasons
 
     LBMBL is a fast-growing adult baseball organization with strong roots in the greater Philadelphia area. Started officially in 2009, LBMBL continues to unite a common passion for playing and enjoying the great American pastime. LBMBL players are committed athletes of various skill levels. They posses a strong respect for the league and their professions and in turn make every experience more enjoyable.
 
     LBMBL adheres to standard baseball rules but had adopted a personal set of rules and regulations which offer a greater level of sportsmanship. The league generally starts in mid April and runs until mid August. Most games are 7 inning double headers played on Sundays. Playoffs start in the beginning of August and run over the weekends until a champion is crowned.
2014 LBMBL Week 2 Standings
 
1) Bucks County Bulldogs - (3-1) - The pre-season favorite and returning champ showed why they are the favorites on Sunday.  They defeated the Dodgers 11-0 and 8-0 on Sunday behind stellar pitching performances from Mike Caron (Game 1 winner) and Travis Hughes (Game 2 winner).  Combined, the two Bulldog hurlers allowed no runs, 4 hits, walked 2 and struck out 24 Dodger hitters in two games.
 
2) Liberty Bell Mudskippers - (3-1) - The Skippers split with the Dirt Dawgs on Sunday.  Manager Kris Sharp got another great pitching performance from last week's Pitcher of the Week, Dan French, in game one to lead to the 11-2 victory.  In game two, the Skippers bats were held silent as the Dirt Dawgs scored all 5 of their runs in one inning in the 5-0 loss.  The Mudskippers will face the 3-1 Tigers at John Boyce field on April 27th in a rematch of last year's heated semi-final series.
 
3) Dirt Dawgs - (3-1) - After sweeping the Orioles to start the year, the Dirt Dawgs split with the Mudskippers in Week 2, losing game one 11-2 and winning game two 5-0.  The Dirt Dawgs have another big matchup on April 27th against their former manager, Bill Mason, and the Hartford Braves.

 4) Delaware Valley Tigers - (3-1) - The Tigers split with the Dodgers in Week 1 but swept the Orioles, 12-2 and 12-0 in Week 2.  Tim Stephan had a 6-hit day for the Tigers and Dan Higgins drove in 7.  Joey Zajac got the win in game one and John Alexander threw a complete game 1-hitter in a 5 inning-shortened game two.  The Tigers will battle the Mudskippers on April 27th at their home field of John Boyce.
 
 
5) Hartford Braves - (3-1) - After splitting with the defending champion Bulldogs in week one, the Braves took care of the Monarchs in Week 2, 8-5 and 5-3.  Lefty Ryan Loughran got the win in game one while Dennis Geiger was the winning pitcher in Game 2.  Bill Mason's Braves have a big matchup with the Dirt Dawgs at Abington High School on April 27th.
 
6) Drexel Hill Dodgers - (1-3) - After getting a split against the Tigers in week one, the Dodgers were dominated by some great Bulldogs pitching in Week 2.  The Dodgers take on the Philadelphia Monarchs at Plymouth Whitemarsh on April 27th.

7) Philadelphia Monarchs - (0-4) - The Monarchs played a solid couple games against the Hartford Braves on Sunday but ended up losing both by scores of 8-5 and 5-3.  The Monarchs will look to get their first win of the season on April 27th when they take on the Drexel Hill Dodgers.

8) The Water Tower Orioles - (0-4) - The Orioles have been outscored 45-6 in their first four games of 2014 and were most recently swept by the Tigers.  It doesn't get any easier for the O's as they host the defending champion Bucks County Bulldogs after the Easter holiday.

 
Matchups of Week 3
  vs
 
Dirt Dawgs vs. Braves
 
This matchup is one that has been anticipated since the LBMBL schedule came out.  The Dirt Dawgs are primarily made up of players who were on Bill Mason's A's team last year while Mason and Sal Raie's Seminoles combined to create the Braves.  There is already trash talking going on between the team's managers so we anticipate a heated, competitive doubleheader.  Not only do you have the emotional part of this matchup, but both teams are 3-1 making this a key matchup for spots in the standings.
 
  vs
Mudskippers vs. Tigers
 
Another highly anticipated matchup occurs on April 27th when a rematch of last year's great semi-final series between the Mudskippers and Tigers occur.  Both teams are 3-1 coming into this matchup making this the biggest doubleheader of this young season for both the Skippers and Tigers.  This matchup also pins the two Vice Presidents of the LBMBL, managers Kris Sharp (Mudskippers) and Ari Bluestein (Tigers) against each other for the first time.

April 13th:
Player of the week
 Garrett Rugg
Bucks County Bulldogs
 
     On a day where the Bulldogs pitching dominated the Dodgers, offense was still needed to get the wins and Garrett Rugg provided a bulk of that.  On the day, Rugg went 3-for-6 with two runs scored and 5 RBI's.

Pitcher(s) of the Week
Travis Hughes &
Mike Caron
Bucks County Bulldogs

John Alexander
Delaware Valley Tigers
 
    There is no way the LBMBL could pick one of these three pitchers as the sole pitcher of the week as all 3 deserve the honor.  Caron went 7 innings only giving up 2 hits while walking one and striking out 11 in the Bulldogs game one, 11-0 win over the Dodgers.  Hughes followed that up in game two with another complete game, also only giving up 2 hits, walking one and striking out 13.
 
     Meanwhile at Abington High School, Tigers left-hander John Alexander retired the first 14 batters he faced before his perfecto was ended on a throwing error and then a double.  But in a shortened 5-inning game, Alexander threw all 5 and struck out 11, facing only 2 hitters over the minimum.
 

April 6th:

Player of the week
Dan Higgins
Delaware Valley Tigers

     Dan was 5-for-6 with a double, 5 runs scored, 4 RBIs, two walks and an intentional walk.  Out of 9 plate appearances on Sunday in 2 games against the Dodgers, Higgins was on base 8 of those times.
 
Pitcher of the Week
Dan French
Liberty Bell Mudskippers
 
     French threw a complete game against the Monarchs in a 13-1 Mudskippers victory.  French held strong through the first four innings while the game remained close and finished strong with the Mudskippers bats able to stretch the lead in the later innings.  French scattered 7 hits over his 7 innings giving up only one unearned run in the 6th inning.  He also had 5 strikeouts compared to only 2 walks.
