2018 Champions: Western Wildcats
In quite possibly the best World Series we've ever seen, the Western Wildcats came out victorious in four games to return to wiffle ball prominence. With the leadership of Kyle Schultz, heroics (and SportsCenter Top 10 worthy plays) from Zac Peurach, and great defense from Ryan Kelly, the Wildcats were able to claim their 6th World Series in franchise history. The Mallards put up a tremendous fight but would eventually fall in the series 3-1.

2018 Power Rankings: End of Year
1.) Western Wildcats: Everything came together perfectly for this team. With an overall record of 16-5, Schultz, Peurach, and Kelly will go down as one of the best trifectas we've ever seen.
2.) Midwest Mallards: The Mallards had a very solid year and once again showed the nation why they are one of the top teams in the league. Coughlin was a force on the mound but hitting depth came back to haunt them later in the year.
3.) Eastern Eagles: In back-to-back years now, the Eagles were one game away from defeating the Mallards and advancing to the World Series. We'll see what Daniel Schultz does with the roster this offseason, because rumblings have already started.
4.) Coastal Cobras: A late ALDS surge masked what was ultimately a disappointing year for Cobra Nation. After starting 5-1, they would go 1-8 in the next 9. We might see some attrition here.
5.) Pacific Predators: Kracht gave life to a team that desperately needed it early on in the year. After joining the Preds, they went 7-2 in the regular season and things were looking up. However, the walk bug got to Kracht in the playoffs, and they didn't have an answer a the plate. Next year with Kracht more settled in with the leadership role, they should have a solid full season. Warda will still be looking to make some moves as we all know he is the one to do so.
6.) Southern Seahawks: Gabel was perhaps the most surprising player in MLW in 2018. He had 12 HR at the plate and a clutch Game 1 victory over the Mallards in the NLDS. Not enough roster depth once again came back to haunt them though.
