Travel League Weekend #2
From the MAFTL website:

We were able to get all the games in despite the weather. Games were shortened to 5 innings on Saturday and we didn’t get off the field until 1:30 am Sunday morning. Sunday’s 5 play-off games were played regulation, with the NY Gremlims defeating Keatings 6-2 in the Championship game. The real wiiner of the weekend was the Garrett Park ground crew as they worked effectively dealing with what Mother Nature dumped on us. As soon as I recover from the weekends effects, the website will be updated with all games and highlights.
