It’s down to the final four in the Komox Men’s Real Baseball League playoffs as semifinals go this Sunday, Aug. 23 at Highland Field.
The second season started last weekend with a huge upset as last place Happy’s Source for Sports Indians knocked off regular season champion Fisher Realty Twins 10-5 on Aug. 15.
The eighth-place Indians (3-16-2) finished 10 games back of the first-place Twins (12-5-5).
There were more surprises when play resumed Aug. 16 as the seventh-place Brian McLean Yankees upended the second-place Mindset Wealth Mariners 9-7 and sixth-place Gladstone Brewery Athletics defeated fourth-place Toneff Funeral Services Blue Jays 5-2.
The only higher-ranked team to beat a lower-ranked team was third-place Investors Group Expos, and it was a close call as they edged fifth-place Daryl Robbins CGA Royals 3-2.
Thus the stage is set for this Sunday’s semis at Highland Field, with Happy’s taking on Investors at 11:30 a.m. and Brian McLean going up against Gladstone Brewery at 3 p.m.
