Thursday is always a huge day, with the final games of the regular season, the first round of camper vs. pro games, and the camp championship game.
The Heroes Division winner came down to Game 7. Stanler Steamers controlled their own destiny. They defeated Schniedley’s 27-7 to win the Heroes Division.
Baseball action moved to Goodyear Ballpark for the remainder of camp, beginning with four teams playing the Indians Pros. Everyone had an awesome time!
At 5:00, newly crowned Stanler Steamers played Legends Division winner Goodyear Bombers for the camp championship. At 6:00, those not playing enjoyed a ballpark BBQ dinner in the picnic plaza.
The championship game was one of the best ever, featuring outstanding pitching and defense by both teams. The game was scoreless until the bottom of the sixth inning. Goodyear Bombers broke through with a four-runs, then held on after allowing a run in the top of the 7th, to win 4-1. A complete game recap will appear in Friday’s edition of Smoke Signals. It will post late tonight after it is distributed at the Awards Banquet.
Baseball activities conclude this morning when the remaining four teams play the team of Indians Pros at Goodyear Ballpark.
