The 2016 Playoffs Are Upon Us

Knockout Round
Sunday, August 14, 2016
Howard Field

After a hard fought season the top four teams are standing strong and ready for the playoffs. It all starts with this week’s Sudden. Death. Knockout. Round.


12:30pm
(4) Leatherback Turtles
vs. (1) Brahma Bulls

Though they sit in the fourth and final seed, the defending champ Leatherback Turtles are no stranger to the postseason, after all they’ve won the whole thing in back-to-back seasons. The Turtles now look to make it three championships in a row, an impressive accomplishment in any sport.

The first place Brahma Bulls had strong showing all season long, giving up a record low 39 runs on the year. After getting just a taste of the postseason with their first round knockout in 2015, these Blazing Brahma Bulls look to build on their impressive 2016 campaign and hoist that beautiful bronze trophy when all is said and done.


4:00pm
(3) Bearded Dragons
vs. (2) Turkey Vultures

The third place Bearded Dragons have made the postseason in every one of their six seasons. Despite an up-and-down year, these wily old veterans know how to win the big game and are looking to go out in a blaze of championship glory.

Having lost in back-to-back championships, the second place Turkey Vultures seek vengeance, and it shows. They mashed their way to a league leading 145 runs scored, way ahead the 89 run-scored league average, and are hoping their big bats can get them those final three W’s needed to be crowned P.A.B. Champions.
