SJMSBL League Championship Sunday October 8 at Los Gatos
For the first time since 1998 when the league split into different divisions there will be one league champion when the division winners meet this Sunday at Los Gatos high school.
The morning game will feature the Ettare Division Champion Phillies vs the Nicewonger Division Twins. The Phillies managed by Jose Zapien and Gilbert Guel had a remarkable year and bring a 19-6 record into Super Sunday while the Twins posted a 21-3-1 mark in winning their third straight division title under co managers Max Blankenship & Kye Madej.
Waiting for the winner of the morning game will be the legendary dynasty of the Dunn Division Champion Giants who sport a 20-4 record. Rookie manager Nate Harbarger did an impressive job in guiding the Giants to their 18th division title (and fourth straight) in their 26th appearance in the division finals as the league celebrates its 30th season.
The Giants are the last team to win an overall league championship in 1998.
