Richmond Wins Their Third Title in Five Seasons!
The Season 24 Playoffs were a battle yet again, and it's Richmond, ranked #7 in the final power rankings, that came out of it with their 3rd Kenny Powers title in 5 seasons. Richmond defeated Boise in the World Series in 5 games. Perhaps Boise didn't have much left in the tank after defeating the top 2 teams in the final power rankings, Helena and Little Rock, in the previous 2 rounds. The Richmond bats stepped it up in the postseason, clubbing 24 Home Runs in 14 games and finishing with an OPS 77 points higher than their regular season totals. When the bats get going for the world's top ranked pitching team, they are going to be tough to beat, which was the case during the playoffs, as Richmond's #1 staff continued their excellence with 3.06 playoff ERA. It was an impressive run for Boise as well, as their pitching staff also majorly stepped it up in the playoffs, which allowed them to topple two 108+ win teams on their way to the World Series. They couldn't get over that final hump, but congratulations to bubbleboy and Boise on a great run.
That does it for Season 24. See you back soon for Season 25!
