Aug 19 2023: V.9 East holding close - by mark41974 on July 30th, 2015

Grand Island Independent 18 Aug 2023,

As we come back to the inter division portion of this years BB baseball season four teams still remain in the hunt for the Div V 9 Title. With all four teams still within two games of each other its anyone's prize to claim but who do we think has the staying power to claim the prize this year?

In the West we have a two team race were with Pasadena the only team sporting a positive run total it would seem would be the likely choice to make the jump this season. The Hayward Wolfs would argue but it would take some exceptional play on their part to overtake and maintain a lead on the current leaders in that division.

The real show is in the east with four teams all within two games of each other. All four sport a better record than Pasadena as well as maintaining a respectable positive run diff so far. while fifth place Tulsa is still in it they are a outside shot with such a strong field of teams in front of them and unlikely to make the jump. it is a shame that one of these five teams will be dropped this season though given the divisions domination of their West side opponents. now lets look at the 4 major players in this race.

Grand Forks:
Batting- Number 2 in the league in average and OPS in the league let you know that this team can pump out the runs. With two starters over .300 and two sluggers over 20 HR its easy to see where all these runs are produced. If this team does have a weakness here it is in there depth and versatility of play. As it has strong starters it has few good bats to back them up.

Pitching- A 4.20 ERA that is third in the league gives a good OFF/DEF balance to this team. Also maintaining a good balance between the starters and the bull pin has played a important role for this team. Again Depth is their weakness with only 10 pitchers on the roster a key injury could truly hurt this team in the long run.
