The A Division final of the Nelson Mixed Slo-Pitch League came down to the top two teams on Sunday.

Unknowns take slo-pitch title

Showdown between top two clubs ends up 13-3 in A Division final.

The Unknowns are the champions of the Nelson Mixed Slo-Pitch A division. The veteran squad turned on the offence in the final, beating Louie’s 13-3 on Sunday afternoon.

The victory capped off an exciting weekend of play as all three division champs were crowned.

The A final provided some revenge for the Unknowns who finished tied for first in league play with Louie’s. However, Louie’s was awarded top spot in regulation due to a better run differential.

“The two best teams were in the final, how could you ask for more?” asked league president RJ Warren.

The Unknowns’ bats proved to be too much for Louie’s in the final as they cruised to a 10 run victory.

The B Division title could not be decided in regulation play as the Can-Filters and Molson Finley’s had to play two extra innings to decide a winner. In the end, the Finley’s squad won the contest 15-14.

“That was a really tight game. Both teams played excellent. To have that kind of final means were are getting the parity we want.”

In the C Division final, Our Glass edged Tin Tippers 10-9 to win the title.

“It was a very close game. They just couldn’t squeeze it out There was an out that happened in a double play that ended the game,” explained Warren.

Overall, the playoffs were considered to be a big success.

“The event has gone off really well. You know God is a ball fan when you get this kind of weather,” he said.

It was a great way to end the 20th season for the league, which formed in 1994 when two smaller Nelson-based leagues joined together.

“We built these diamonds, we’re playing here, we’re having fun, how can you not say that we’ve had a good year.”
