League Championship Game: vs. House Doctors of Hubbard (Hubbard # 3)
The game started well for the boys from Liberty, with a run in the top of the first on a single by Connor and a triple by Kevin. The House Doctors battled back to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first inning, with a couple of hits and a couple of bad throws by the defense. They stretched the lead to 3-1 with another run in the second, as Redstone seemed a little tight in the field. Redstone got a run in the fourth on a single by Boomer, then the Hubbard boys scored again, so it was 4-2 going to the top of the sixth. Redstone scored a run on a sharp hit up the middle by Vincent, but it wasn't enough, as the House Doctors of Hubbard were crowned league champs, 4-3. Boomer was 1 for 3 with an RBI single to right.
All the coaches remarked on how much Boomer improved as the season went on, especially his hitting, but also his fielding and baserunning. It was a bittersweet end to the season, but it was a good year for ol' number 21. We're all very proud of Boomer and the entire team.
