2018 CRBL League Preview
Welcome to yet another season of organized and competitive local baseball in the historical and documented Chippewa River Baseball League. It is with pride and respect that we recognize 2019 as the 90th season of baseball in the CRBL over a 110 year span of time dating back to 1908. It is truly remarkable to consider that over 12,300 individuals have played in the CRBL over the long and storied existence. Definitively stated, very few if any baseball organizations – amateur or professional – across the United States can substantiate such a strong and rich place in America’s pastime as that of the CRBL.
2017 marked the second year in a row that the Osseo Merchants dominated the CRBL landscape. With a single-season record 21 wins, the talented and powerful Merchants captured the South Division, beating the Tilden Tigers 10-4 in the wildcard game and then beating the Eau Claire Cavaliers 3-2 in the CRBL championship game. The Cavs reached the title bout via an 8-4 win over the Eau Claire Bears.
