South Oakland lost to the Hebrew Oilers 9-2 in Brookline Wednesday night. The Ducks were held hitless until the sixth when Mark Lombardi tripled to left, but the game was out of reach at that point. The Ducks leading hitter was ejected in the second in a bizarre move by the field ump. That set the tone for the rest of the game.
Overall, it was a good season despite our record. I’m not one for moral victories, but we added a few guys who will help us going forward, and it was a fun year under difficult circumstances. We were in every game but a couple. Unfortunately, one of those was our final playoff game.
We finished fourth, but we won a playoff game. A couple bounces during the regular season, and maybe we get a bye and things are different. I’ve suffered much more crushing defeats as a Duck. The future is bright in South Oakland.
Tom will post team awards at some point. Good luck to the Bandidos and Oilers in the finals this weekend.
