The 2020 American Division Champion Rangers
The Rangers over come an early deficit to beat the Mets 7-5 to win the American Division Championship. Led by Brad Hoben's pitching, timely hitting and excellent defense, the Rangers overcame a 4-1 Mets lead and chipped away to take a brief 5-4 lead in the 7th, only to see the Mets tie it in the bottom of the same inning. The Rangers then scored 2 more runs in the 8th with some aggressive base running to take the lead for good. The Mets had 2 on in the bottom of the 9th, but could not bring anybody home as Brad shut the door for good and led the Rangers to their first championship since 2015.

BASEBALL FIELD LOCATIONS AND DIRECTIONS
A fellow Denver NABA baseball player’s family has experienced an awful life changing event. The family's house, located in Wisconsin, has burned to the ground. Thankfully, no human life was lost. Apparently there is no insurance and the family is in need of assistance.
I thought you might be interested in supporting this GoFundMe, https://gofund.me/bf62a49a.
Even a small donation could help Bruce Brue reach their fundraising goal. And if you can't make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word.
Thanks for taking a look!
The 2020 National Division Champion Spikes
The Spikes, who overcame a 1-5 start of the season, rallied twice against the Fossils to ultimately win 12-9 and win the National Division Championship. As they did to turn around their season, in a true team effort, the Spikes had a big rally in the 7th inning to put the game away for good and take the win for their first championship since 2017.
The 2020 National Division Runner Up Fossils
We're one of the nation's largest independent baseball leagues for both "semi-experienced and experienced" players. We have both men and women players in our league. Men must be at least 47 years of age at game time while women can play if they're at least 21 years age at game time. We schedule nine inning games with a limited stealing rule and liberal substitution to ensure that all players get the maximum benefit and enjoyment while playing baseball in our league.
If you played baseball (not softball) “a long time ago” know that our league has many players just like you. If you played only softball, you can still have fun and be competitive in the games we play. It will take a little more practice to get you up to speed.
• Time Commitment: Minimum you can count on is 3 1/2 hours each week (Arrive early, and play 2:45-3:00 hours each game). Some teams schedule weekly practices, some don’t, so that is up to the team you are selected by. You can go to our website at coloradoover50baseball.org and click on the link for field locations so you can also figure travel time. Games are on Saturday or Sunday at 9, 12:15 and 3:30 PM. Depending on your team, you may have an equal number of games on each day or one may be a majority.
• MONEY: You should expect it to cost between $270-$295 for your league fees (15 game minimum) depending on your team’s roster size. You might also spend up to $100 on uniforms and $50-150 on “lumber”. Lots of help is available in these areas. Of course, you will need your own equipment (gloves, rubber/moulded plastic spikes, helmet etc) so be prepared to spend happy moments and $$ in your local or online sporting goods store.
