HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

The Cubbies have high expectations for 2020 after winning the MSBL Fall Classic Central 2 Division Champions & finishing in first place last year in the regular season in the Bux-Mont Baseball League. The Cubs are adding a player or two from the fall tournament championship to bolster the roster for the 2020 season. The attitude on the team has grown even more positive & confident after winning the tournament & finishing first last season in the Bux-Mont League. The team always was fun & confident but there was something extra that was felt going into the Fall Classic that we all hope will continue. I have know doubt that that attitude will carry over into the 2020 Bux-Mont season. 

The Bux-Mont over 45 Metropolitan Division has become more competitive this year based on the current teams listed for the division. Bux-Mont has added the Newtown Braves & the Philly Old Timers to the division in 2020. Having played against both in the past in a fall league I remember these two teams were pretty good & should be fun competing against them.

Below is the current Metropilitan Division that is listed on the league web site:

  1. Collegeville Cubs
  2. Lehigh Valley Hurricanes
  3. Top Lumber
  4. Horsham Rays
  5. Lansdale Cannoneers
  6. Newtown Braves
  7. Philly Old Timers

Also in 2020 the Cubs may be having a new home field to play on. More info on that once it is confirmed.

BUX-MONT CUBS WIN THE OVER 45 CENTRAL DIVISION FALL CLASSIC CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

 

 

 

 

The Cubs headed to the Fall Classic in West Palm Beach & Jupiter Florida looking to bring home the championship for the first time in a number of years. The team felt confident heading into the classic after a solid regular season in the Bux-Mont Baseball league & a couple of additions to the roster for the tournament. This roster that was brought down to Florida didn't have any weak spots in the lineup, on the bench or in the starting rotation. The wasn't an easy out in the order. The order actually had about 7 guys that could bat 4th in it throughout the tournament. Weather in week one of the Fall Classic would play a factor some & cause absolute chaos in week two with how many rain outs occurred throughout the week.

 

Game # 1 of the tourney against the Columbus Dragons was supposed to be the Cubs stadium game being played in Roger Dean Stadium but after a lot of rain on Sunday they moved it to Marlins # 5. The Cubbies's offense was on fire from the start & provided runs support through out the game.Tony Carfagno came out of the chute with his A game & pitched 7 solid innings before Dave Raimondo came in to close out the game & seal a 15-3 win.

Game # 2, which was game # 1 of DH, was a rematch against the Hitzmen which were the team that both knocked the Cubs out of the playoffs & won the tournament last year. Tommy Troutman came out & pitched masterly pitched all 9 innings while the offense continued to rake as they defeated the defending champs 12-2.

Game # 3 ( game # 2 of a doubleheader ) had the team squaring off with the 2016 Fall Classic Champion MD Monarchs. The Cubs had to piece together pitching in this game after pitcher Dan Yannes pulled a muscle while pitching but the offense picked up the clack & won 8-5.

Game # 4 took on an old foe that has since changed the name of the team from the Atlanta Giants to the Atlanta Spirits. Every time these two teams meet it's a nail biter. Tournament MVP Matt Altieri hit the ball out & closed the game for the second time in the tournament the win over the Saints. Paul O'Connor started the game & pitched 7 1/3 innings in this meeting against the Saints as the final score was 7- 6.

The last game of the placing portion of the tournament took place against the Albany Yankees. Since the Cubs had locked up first in the division with a 4-0  record heading into the game against the Yanks the Cubs pitched the outfielders in this one.

 

After being seeded at # 2 in the playoffs we were now scheduled to play the Atlanta Spirit once again. This game was a laugher as the Cubbies won 11-3. Tommy Troutman pitched another 9 inning gem in the one.

Game # 2 the semi-finals the Cubs once again took on the Hitzmen. This game was a laughter as the Cubs win 11-2. Bobby Altieri took the hill for the Cubs pitching all 9 innings.

After the win over the Hitzmen it set the Cubs up to face the Isotopes in Roger Sean Stadium with former Cub Juan Rodriguez on the team.

Unfortunately rain came in over night & washed out all games for Saturday. So after discussion with the MSBL office the Cubs were declared the champions.
