Season 22 Wrap Up - Helena Takes the Crown!
Helena made their mark on the Season 22 playoffs, running through the competition with ease, posting an 11-2 record in the postseason, sweeping Wichita in 3 games, taking out #1 ranked New Britain in 5 games, then defeating a strong Chicago team in the World Series, also in 5 games. The Helena pitching staff could barely be touched in the postseason, sporting an impressive 2.67 ERA and 1.13 WHIP, a major factor in them being able to cruise to the title. The offense was adequate, and came through when needed led by powerhouse stud DH Nick Spence who hit .353 with 5 HR and 13 RBI this postseason, to go with a 1.097 OPS. After a few down seasons, it looks like Helena is now one of Kenny Powers' elite teams that will be in the mix again for several seasons to come. This is bluebaran's 3rd Kenny Powers title, also winning in Seasons 7 & 9, and the franchise also won the crown in Season 13, the season after he left the team for a quick break!
Congratulations to Helena and bluebaran on a great season. It will be tough to repeat with so many solid teams in the mix. See you back soon for Season 23, it should be an exciting one!
