Komox Masters Real Baseball League semifinals go Sunday

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.
