In the now familiar steady drizzle, the Shelburne Athletics capped off a stellar 14-0 season by winning the Minor League Championship 10-6 against the Shelburne Dodgers last Saturday.  Both teams showed reliable pitching, smart batting, tight defense, and aggressive base running.  There were many notable plays. For example, the Athletics threw out a runner stealing second were stingy at the plate, and managed timely hits. The Dodgers knocked down several hard grounders and twice threw out runners headed to third base.
