World Series Preview
For the second straight season, we see the High Rollers in the Bay State Wiffle League World Series in competition for the Commissioner's Cup.
Many come to a shock when they see that the Inglorious Batters will represent the lower seed in the best of three series that will take place Thursday, August 12 beginning with game one at 6:07 PM ET.
The Inglorious Batters have been the cinderella story this season as they have fought for a World Series spot after finishing 4-16 in the regular season. The Batters, lead by manager Matt Murphy have been red hot this postseason with a perfect 4-0 record. The postseason run timeline is below
July 26 @ Nor'easters ::: 12-4 | Aug. 1 @ Mallards ::: 9-4 WIN | Aug. 9 @ Eagle Fang ::: 11-7 WIN | Aug. 9 @ Eagle Fang ::: 1-0 WIN
Though every opponent played short-handed and with injuries we saw the Batters take advantage of that and win four straight games including a series sweep over the top-ranked Eagle Fang after they lost Brian DiNapoli to a game two injury.
The High Rollers finished with the league's best record for the second straight season, surrending only one loss (19-1). Haverty and co. have much confidence they will hoist the Commissioner's Cup again but don't sleep on the Batters.
