Eastern Eagles Win the World Series!
The Eagles have done it. Finally. It took them seven years to do it, but they have finally won a World Series. Led by Daniel Schultz, the Eastern Eagles have finally beaten the Western Wildcats in the finals (3 games to 1). The Eagles looked to be the most complete team this whole year, and they really put it together in the World Series. Although the Eagles key power hitter, Brendan Schultz, departed for college in Mid-August, Clayton Price and Ryan Kracht were able to step up in a big way to support Daniel. Clayton hit multiple key home runs off Kyle Schultz in the World Series, while Kracht was able to shut the door on the Wildcats with a solid Game 4 pitching effort. The Eagles have now won their first World Series title in franchise history, and now become the third different team to win a World Series in MLW history.
The 2016 season turned out to be the most successful season we've had, and there's no stopping here. The 2017 season looks to be another promising year, with new players already showing interest in joining the league, as well as a new team being added. Stay tuned for offseason updates on our YouTube channel, as we look to prepare for another great year!
