Spring Season Winding Down
The Softball and Baseball seasons are winding down, such a short season but not without its share of excitement. Why is it that almost every year, I say it's a wide open race to the championships ? Because it is. In almost every class, I could pick 3 or 4 teams that could win it. Then again which team will get hot and make a great run for the title, which team will get a good draw in the tournament and then again which team might get lucky and win it all. The regular season has been exciting. I've seen many teams, but I haven't left a game yet and said WOW about a team. I've seen some very good teams, some very good players The broadcasts are going great and 960WELI will take you right through the CIAC Championships as well as the SCC Tournament in West Haven. I will again be naming the WELI Xtreme Designs Player of the Year. This year it will be a tough choice. So which teams make the big run, which will have to win their final game just to qualify and then make a big run to the title and which teams are playing just for pride, heart, or just to play the role of the spoiler because they have been eliminated? We'll find out together.
