four team chamionship round
June rolls around every year and Cambridge puts on its mayors Cup Tournament.. The day, at Comeau Park in North Cambridge was beautiful for Little League Baseball. As always The Minor Leagues consisted of teams in the North (doders). vs. the Central pirates) and they played the first semefinal game in which the Pirates outscored the Dodgers four to two after only one inning of play. After three innings of play the pirates had doubled up up the Dodgers by a score of six to three. Later on the Pirates threatened to run away with the game by commanding a nine to three score. That would be all the runs the Pirates would get. The Dodgers would put three more runs on the board and the Pirate pitching would hold strong for a final score of Pirates nine to six over the Dodgers.
The second game on the Minor League docket had the West division (Mets) play against the East division (Marlins) for a right to play the Central division (pirates) in the Minor League Championship game. The West Mets, on the strength of may homeruns defeated the East (marlins) who played valiantly by a final score of ten to one. So the championship game pitted the Tigers( central) vs.the Mets (west) The Tigers went ahead Quickly by putting a run on the board in the first inning. The mets went down Quietly. The second inning rolled around and the
tigers exploded for three runs making the score four to nothing. The tigers added two more runs to lead by a score of six to one.
Congratulations to the winning team; the Central Tigers and the runner-up West Mets. The Dodgers, from the North and the East Cambridge Marlins deserve recognition for winning their respective divisions. The North division was the host team for this year's Mayors Cup and I would like to thank them for their hospitality in making this years tournament so successful Also thanks to the coaches and the parents for teaching and inspiring these young ball players.
