Final series dates (modified best of 3):
Friday at 6:30 in Wadena. 7 inning game.
Saturday at 2:00 in Rhein. 7 inning game. One-inning game 3 if needed would happen at the conclusion of game 2.
The League Final will feature a proven Rhein Rockets team having won 1st place in the league and been around the Men’s Fastball Circuit for year against a young team that has improved in the ranks every year of the leagues existence. The Jr Royals are made up of all U19 (formerly Midget Aged) and would have been competing for another Provincial Championship this year but with those cancelled this league title will be their last competitive games of the year.
