Phillies Win Majors Championship
Competing in a league of four Severna Park teams, three Pasadena teams and one Elvaton team, the Severna Park Green Hornets Phillies overcame a first-round playoff loss to come back through the losers bracket and twice beat the Pasadena Red Sox, 21-2 and 14-1, to claim the 11-12 Majors division championship. The Phillies finished the regular season with a 13-1 record and went 6-1 in the playoffs en route to winning the title, notching victories over the Severna Park Rays, Severna Park Yankees, Pasadena Nationals, Pasadena Orioles and Pasadena Red Sox.
Throughout the season and title-winning playoff run, the Phillies received stellar play from the entire roster of Addison Wells, Sam Grattan, Jacob Connors, Spencer Colborne, Drew Martin, Collin Brown, Nathan Urlock, Cameron Urlock, Stephen Cobbs, Ben Tatterson, Nicholas Seabolt and Zach Meyer. Pitchers Cameron Urlock and Seabolt each went 3-0 in the playoffs, with Urlock striking out 25 and Seabolt striking out 20. The Phillies leading hitters in the playoffs were Meyer (.800), Brown (.692), Nathan Urlock (.615), Cameron Urlock (.588), Tatterson (.545) and Colborne (.529). Their playoff RBI leaders were Colborne (11), Brown (9) and Martin (8). Cobbs posted a playoff OBP of .526 while smacking five hits, driving in three runs, scoring seven times and walking five times; Connors had a double, walked five times, drove in two and scored twice; and Grattan belted four hits, scored seven runs, drove in four and walked eight times.
The Phillies were coached by David Colborne, Bart Connors, Steve Brown and Eric Meyer. Colborne was proud to see every player get the opportunity to pitch and six different Phillies play catcher during the season. Colborne also was proud to see his team play with good sportsmanship throughout the season.
A coach of one of the other teams said we were the best team as far as sportsmanship, said Colborne. I told the team, We win with dignity and lose with dignity.
Congratulations to the Phillies on an outstanding all-around season.
