West Shore Twilight Baseball League
End of Season Playoffs
As of the weekend results completed July 17, 2016, the Enola Express, Shippensburg Stars, and Mt. Holly Brewers have been mathmatically eliminated from the 2016 end-of-season playoffs. Although fhe final order of finish in the regular season has yet to be determined, the remaining top four teams, the Mechanicsburg Cardinals, Hagerstown Braves, Dillsburg Wolfpack, and New Cumberland Tigers have all officially qualified for the playoffs. The semi final series matchups (1 versus 4 and 2 versus 3) will depend on the final standings. As such, dates, times and locations have yet to be determined.
The West Shore Twilight Baseball League (WSTBL) regrets to announce that the Cumberland Dodgers, due to difficulty maintaining a sufficient roster to field a team with no relief in sight in terms of signing additional players, has decided that their best course of action is to withdraw from the WSTBL league as of today, June 26, 2016.
The WSTBL, for the remainder of the 2016 season, will now consist of the following seven teams: The Dillsburg Wolfpack, the Enola Express, the Hagerstown Braves, the Mechanicsburg Cardinals, the Mt. Holly Brewers, the New Cumberland Tigers and the Shippensburg Stars.
All games previously played by and against the Cumberland Dodgers, as well as those scheduled for the remainder of their 2016 schedule, have been vacated as if they had not participated in the first place during the 2016 season. Any wins or losses against the Cumberland Dodgers by other league clubs have been removed from the league standings, the order of which has been adjusted accordingly.
Next league meeting: Oct. 1, 2016 @ 11:00am at the Mechanicsburg Club (end of season review / return of team rosters and contracts to respective teams)
WSTBL Hall of Fame established
By unanimous vote at the September 27, 2015 league meeting, the WSTBL has established it's own Hall of Fame to include past or present players, coaches, league officials, etc. Current members of the National Semi-Pro Hall of Fame who were or are still participants in the WSTBL will immediately be inducted as Hall of Famers in the new WSTBL Hall of Fame. Going forward, the WSTBL Hall of Fame committee will present nominee names and justification for league consideration / vote at each annual September meeting to place new members into this institution.
