Congratulations goes out to the Garland New Homes Pony Team on winning the 2019 WBL Championship game. A great game was played on Saturday Night between the number one seed Prime Meats and the number two seed Garland New Homes for the Pony league Championship played on Clague park #5. In the end the Garland New home team won the game and the season championship by a score of 8-7. The Garland New homes scored first in the second inning but Prime Meats never gave up and chipped away at the Garland New homes lead. In the sixth inning Prime Meats scored 3 runs making up ground and putting the game score at 5 – 6 for the start of the seventh and final inning. Garland New homes added two runs in the top half of the seventh to give them a lttle breathing room with a 8 -5 lead. Prime Meats then up to bat for the final time and coming out strong scored two in the bottom half of the seventh. The games ending was one for the ages and had all the parents, players and fans standing on their feet. With only one out and the bases loaded Prime Meats was threatening to take the lead and game, a hard hit line drive to semi deep center field was caught for the second out and Garland new homes ended the game by completing a spectacular double play throwing to second base and getting the runner for the third and final out. Thank you all that came to the game and to everyone that volunteered their time to coach during the season.

Congratulations goes out to the Vermont Lake Monsters . A great game was player on Wednesday Night between the Hooks and the Monsters on Playhouse Field #1 with the Monsters winning it by a score of 8-7. The Hooks gave it a good try and had all their fans on their feet when they had the bases loaded in the final inning of play but just came up short. This will be a game for the history books for another reason as well, it was the last Minor League championship game ever to be played on this field. They new “Clague Memorial Baseball Park” will be taking it’s place. The construction should start later this summer and a new park will be built in it’s place including more parking spaces for all to enjoy. Look forward to seeing you all on opening day.
