Drive For The Title

The Atlantic League Division Series begins September 18, 2018. I hope The Long Island Ducks can win enough games against The Sugar Land Skeeters in the season finale. The Season ends this week in Sugar Land, Texas. There are 6 games left, starting tonight through September 16, 2018.

The Sugar Land Skeeters already clinched a playoff berth in the Freedom Division and The Somerset Patriots clinched a playoff berth in the Liberty Division, with challengers to be decided later, prior to seasons end.

It’s almost all or nothing. Lets Go Ducks!rally toweldriveforthetitleFor more information on Stats and Standings go toThe Atlantic League of Professional Baseball Players website http://www.atlanticleague.com or The Long Island Ducks http://liducks.com/home/

Atlantic League Team Line-Up Cards

I have had a fun season this year, attending Long Island Ducks baseball games. I was just looking over line-up cards I have, signed by each manager from a particular club. I have 5 of the 8 teams. Had I know earlier, I would have had at least two more. Two teams did not want to sign and give away a lineup card and I did not ask the other team. It was rather late in the year when I started asking. The Somerset Patriots and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs managers did not want to sign and give it away, stating that he uses them again for other games and The Sugar Land Skeeters had already finished playing the Ducks for the season by the time I started asking.

The Ducks are still in the running to head towards the playoffs.
