After two seasons of knocking on the door, the Merchants finally kicked it in, defeating the Sparta Miller 7-0 for the WBA state title. Along the way, the boys went 20-2 in CRBL action (33-2 overall), won the South division, captured their third straight CRBL championship, as well as the prestigious Plum City Memorial Day tournament crown. All 25 men on the roster contributed along the way. Pitching and stellar defense were the strengths of the 2018 squad, along with an unwillingness to give up. Many games were decided late or in extra innings. The Merchants look to return the bulk of last year’s team, along with a few new faces. Things look bright for the 2019 season. Thanks to the businesses and individuals in the area who continually sponsor and donate to our many fund-raising causes. Without them none of this would be possible. See you at Jon Soiney Field at Merchant Park this summer. WWMD!
