Well, we had another amazing AFSL Championship Sunday - including two Finals that were won in bottom of the ninth in walk-off fashion! Congratulations to our 2016 AFSL Champions left to right: $wigs Express (Rolling Rock) Sons of Pitches (Budweiser) Buffalo Bob's (back-to-back Overall AFSL Kokanee Champs) and Knoxville's Tavern (Keith's). Thank You to everyone who contributed to our success this season. Amazing People = Amazing Fun in the Sun with Family and Friends!
Kokanee AFSL Overall Championship - Buffalo Bob's vs Tops Pizza
Although Ken and the Tops Pizza Crew snapped Buffalo Bob's full season plus winning streak, with a 15-8 win back in Week 6, Devan and the Bob's Crew were too much for Tops on Championship Sunday. Bob's jumped out to a early lead and never looked back as they posted a 25-7 victory to earn back-to-back AFSL titles. Bob's now have a shot at becoming (we think) the first 3-Peat winners of the Overall AFSL Championship.
Budweiser Championship - The Brew Jays vs Sons Of Pitches
In a back and forth battle, from inning to inning, Chrissy and the Sons Of Pitches Crew held off Ryan and The Brew Jays Crew. Down 23-18 heading into the bottom of the ninth - the Brew Jays scored three runs but came up a little short in a 23-21 decision. Congrats to Sons of Pitches who also won the Mountain of Beer at the KOP. The SOP's are the first team to claim a MOB and a AFSL Championship in the same season.
Keith's Championship - Knoxville's Tavern vs The Blind Monk
Attempting to go back-to-back in the Keith's Championship, Pauly and The Blind Monk Crew battled Dave and the Knoxville's Tavern Crew. Another close contest, for most of the game, this one ended in spectacular fashion. Down by five runs heading into the bottom of the ninth Knoxville's chipped away before Josh hit a two-out - two-run walk off double - to send Knoxville's home as the Keith's Champs with a stirring 29-28 victory. A rather large gathered crowd witnessed that fantastic finish!
Rolling Rock Championship - The $wigs Express vs Ice Cold Pitchers
In the Rolling Rock Final for a second straight season, Renee and the Ice Cold Pitchers Crew battled Chad and The $wig Express Crew. This was another amazing finish. With the score at 18-16 for $wigs Express after eight innings, ICP scored four runs in the top of the ninth inning to grab a 20-18 lead. $wigs Express tied the score at 20-20 but ICP recorded two quick outs. A couple of base hits and then a walk off - over the fence - home run earned The $wig Express a 23-20 victory.
Hollywood couldn't write some of the events, that happened on the field, in the stands and on the sidelines during our final 2016 Sunday Fun Day.
