Bedford Black, a U-15 Babe Ruth Travel Team, Wins MSBL Intermediate Division Championship

Special to The Bedford Citizen

On June 19, the Bedford Black under-15 Babe Ruth travel team put the exclamation point on their spring baseball season with a hard-fought 10-3 victory over the Winchester Royals at Arlington High School, winning the MSBL Intermediate division championship and finishing the year with a 13-1 record.

Bedford Black swept through a 10-game regular season schedule unscathed against teams from Winchester, Belmont, and Lexington, while splitting two games with cross-town rivals Bedford Blue. The two Bedford teams, who were the class of the league all season (Blue was 10-1-1 and Black was 10-1 entering their final game) played a winner-take-all game on June 6 to determine which team would represent Bedford in the playoffs, with Bedford Black grabbing a tough win and advancing to the postseason.

BHS Baseball Beat Wilmington 3-2 in Playoffs’ First Round ~ THEN ~ Round Two, Tonight at 6 pm in Melrose

By Jeff JHO Hoyland

These were two evenly matched teams and the first six inning provided a 1-1 tie going into the final inning. It was at this point that all kinds of thought go threw your head about not being the one to blow the game for the team. And Bedford blinked first in the top of the 7th, when a bloop popup in short center ended up with Bucs colliding and the ball falling to the ground. Wilmington ended up scoring on a hard shot to right field, before Bedford calmed down and got three outs.

Then it was time for the Bedford seniors to show their mettle.
