Duck Eliminated from playoffs

2013 South Oakland Ducks Baseball

South Oakland is officially out of the playoffs, thanks to a shitty 9-15 record, and Cranberry picking up a forfeit win from West End.

This is our first losing season and first non playoff campaign since 2007.

I’m not sure how things are going to shake down in the offseason.

Ideally, next year, there will be a single A Ducks team, and we will take the top half of our depth chart and fill in the blanks to form a new AA team.

I feel like our 8-6 second half record reflects our talent level relative to the rest of the league, but our bad start killed us and attendance was an issue.

We lacked middle infield depth and pitching depth. You can’t win with two life time outfielders playing 3rd and 2nd in a must win game.

I will be very surprised if one of the top 4 seeds doesn’t win it this year.

What a disappointing season.
