Championship Sunday Upcoming |
Article Posted August 21, 2010
Regardless of outcome, only one weekend of
baseball remains for the Meron's Expos. After dropping
Game One of the 2010 CVBL Championship series in Lyon Mountain
last Sunday, the 'Spos need a home sweep of the Miners to earn
There are some factors in the Expos' favor:
while Meron's will lose Pat Shaughnessy to his soccer
obligations at Plattsburgh State, for example, leadoff threat
Nick Lamica looks to return to the team from a finger injury.
Additionally, the game will be played at Lefty Wilson Field -
not the Expos' usual home park, but one certainly far more
similar to South Acres Field than Lyon Mountain's Big Ball
Diamond. Ace Billy Davis should also be more rested,
having entered last Sunday's game coming off of 15 innings
pitched the weekend before.
To reiterate, the games will be played at
Lefty Wilson Field, rather than South Acres Field. Food
will be available for purchase, and a 50/50 raffle will be
conducted to benefit the team. The CVBL awards ceremony
will take place immediately following the conclusion of the
series. Please note that in case of inclement weather, the
games will simply be pushed back to the following Sunday; same
time, same place.
In any case, there's plenty of room at Lefty
to accommodate fans of the Expos, Miners, and local baseball in
general, so we hope you'll come out to enjoy the matchup.
