UPDATE - Crushers 11 - Pacifics 5
It was a tight contest, with a Crushers 5-3 advantage headed into the botto of the 6th, but the Crushers clubs came alive to extend the lead, and stop the Pacifics' late surge on a final tally 11-5.
The Cal Cup Championship is set for a re-match of the 2014 final between the Bandits at Crushers. Game is set for today, August 23, at 11AM.
Come one, come all to enjoy the sites and sounds of the best vintage base ball has to offer in California...and it's right in your backyard!
The annual California Cup is being played here in Rancho Murieta, with your local boys in maroon representing Gold Country Vintage Base Ball for a record sixth consecutive season.
The top two teams from Gold Country and the top two teams from Bay Area Vintage Base Ball qualify to play in the tournament, and each year has proven to be a spirited and gentlemanly display.
Unfortunately, the Oakland Colonels had trouble hitching up their wagons and rounding up their regiment, so the Bandits will not play on Saturday. So Saturday's game, between the San Fracisco Pacifics (BAVBB Champion) and Amador County Crushers (GCVBB runner up) will determine who joins the Bandits in Sunday's championship tilt.
Will it be the defending Cal Cup Champion Crushers? Or, will the Pacifics prove victorious havig fallen just short to the Crushers in last year's opening round?
The schedule of games is below. Come out for the games, enjoy the comaraderie, and root on the Bandits!
Saturday - Aug 22
1PM - San Francisco Pacifics vs. Amador County Crushers
Sunday - Aug 23
11AM - Rancho Murieta Bandits vs. Saturday winner
