End of Regular Season - Here Come the Playoffs!
July 7, 2016
Hello Friends - hope the summer has been a great one for you all!
A quick update on the Legion Program:
Senior Legion Bulldogs (16-19s) finished the regular season with the best record in the League (only 2 regular season losses). The team goes as top seed in the double-elimination playoffs and held serve with the first playoff game on Wednesday, July 6 against Aston Media with a 9-5 win. The playoffs continue with Nether taking on the star-studded Broomall-Newtown team Thursday, July 7, 5:30 at SHMS. BN's core is made up of the Marple Newtown Varsity team that made it to the State Semi Finals this year, and features DelCo Times Player of the Year, Ricky Collins, on the roster. Win or Lose tonight, NP will play again July 8, 5:30 at home, opponent to be determined. Winner of the League playoff will be the sole representative for Main Line Sr. Legion in the Regionals which start July 16.
Junior Bulldogs (15s) finished the season as the 3 seed with a 11-5-2 record and kicks off the double-elimination playoff on Saturday, July 9, 3 pm at SHMS vs. Taney. Aston-Media has already wrapped up one of the 2 spots for Regionals by winning the regular season. NP will need to win the playoff championship to go to Regionals, UNLESS it makes it to championship with Aston-Media, in which case, Bulldogs would go win or lose.
The Prep Bulldogs (13s) still have 3 regular season games left before the double-elimination playoffs start on July 16th. They currently hold the 3 seed with a 10-4 record and are only a game behind top ranked Wayne and 1/2 game behind second place Haverford. In order to represent DelMont Prep League at States, the team must win the Playoff Championship (winner of the League regular season does not get a bid to States).
Finally the Independent Team (16-18s) finds itself with a 4-7-1 record with 6 games left prior to a playoff start of July 16. Everyone makes the double-elimination playoffs so the team will be primed to do its best when the lights shine brightest!
There is plenty of GREAT baseball left this summer, so please do make sure to come out and support the teams as the playoffs heat up!
