[B]MPD Sweeps Finals, 8-6 & 11-10[EB]

(This was written by the management team of MPD - any resemblance to impartiality is totally intentional)

The Pacific Division Finals were completed on Monday October 16. Both games were extremely well-played, highlighted by numerous spectacular defensive plays. In these remarkably competitive games, there were 5 lead changes over 7 innings in Game 1 and 6 lead changes in Game 2.  Outstanding play at 3rd base by Dave Brisson had Prime Time cheering and MPD cursing. Both pitchers, Norm Harrison and Kevin Hayes, stabbed line drives I'm not even sure they saw. Steve Bober snatched a high hopper and then turned 2. The resurrected Papa Veo was clean all day at 3rd for MPD. Walker Royce tracked down more than a few shots in right center.
Kevin Hayes (OUR MVP!) was super on the rubber and feeling his oats. At one point he threw his glove in the dirt challenging Prime Time's unmentionables. (Actually I'm not sure what he was doing because I was in right field and couldn't hear a frigging thing...but it looked funny.)
The first game went into the 7th inning tied 6-6. MPD put 2 on with 2 outs, and then three straight hits scored 2 runs. Prime Time was unable to counter in the bottom of the 7th.
In Game 2, after a barrage of Home Runs by Steve Elkinson (THREE on the day!), Danny Sides, Mike Driscoll, Kevin Hayes, and Papa Veo, Prime Time led 10-7 in the top of the 7th.  It looked like there would be a 3rd game - but wait. After a walk and 4 straight hits, MPD tied it up with no outs, a man on 3rd, and big gun Mike Narducci stepping into the box. Mike, grimacing all day from kidney stones, ended the suspense quickly with a line drive hit to left center.
Get the brooms out, boys!! Sweep Sweep. MPD didn't lose a game in the playoffs after losing their 10 previous regular season games!

MPD stands for Marco P. Di Giovine, a tribute to Marco, whom we lost last winter. We are so pleased to have won the Pacific Division playoffs in Marco's honor, and EMASS can all remember him when our team name is called at the banquet and inscribed on the trophy. Marco's spirit lives in all of us: we play and compete and needle each other. And we will do so until the end.

2017 Pacific Division

The Pacific Division plays umpired double-headers in Wayland on Monday mornings (1st games start at 10:00 AM) from late April through mid-OCT.
The Pacific Division is EMASS's most competitive weekday division for players 50 years of age and older, and is generally made up of the best players in EMASS. Many of these players are tournament caliber and several engage in regional and national play year-round. Most players are able to play more than one position well.
Returning and new players are assigned each year to a Pacific Division team by the Pacific Division Coordinator and Mangers. The rosters of Pacific Division teams change each year and are designed to be as comparable skill-wise as possible. Any EMASS Member who registers for the Pacific Division but is not assigned to a Pacific Division Team will be assigned to an Atlantic Division Team.

Registration for 2017 is closed, but we are always looking for new players to fill in when a team needs an extra. Players who feel they have the skills and ability to play in the Pacific Division should contact the Pacific Division Coordinator prior to signing up as an Associate member.
