Team New Era Makes National Playoffs Again

Team New Era playing in the Men's Senior Baseball League National Tournament in Florida took the rough road or back door into the playoffs of the 35+ wood bat tournament today.
In yesterday's double header, New Era faced 2 teams from Venezuela at the NY Mets Digital Domain complex in St. Lucie West. In the morning New Era faced the Sharks. New Era lost 4 to 1 in spite of the 9 inning pitching effort by John Barberio, who gave up only 2 earned runs. In the afternoon, Ed Urbanik went 7 innings and Iron Man Dennis Waxy Gawronski, who pitched Monday the entire first game and win,  pitched the last 2 innings in this game, but again more hitting was necessary as the New Era lost 3 to 2 to the Nosotros. 
Today, New Era had a must win game to keep their playoff hopes alive playing the Great Lakes Red Sox from Detroit, Michigan.
The pitching came up big, again, today as Bruce Hackett threw 9 innings giving up only 6 hits, the defense came up with 4 double plays and the hitting came around as New Era won 5 to 1. Rick Lancellotti had a double and 2 RBI, Curt Hoffman had a hit, scored a run and had an RBI, and Rick Foit also had a double, scored a run and had an RBI.
With Team New Era's win Thursday, and the Sharks loss in the afternoon, it put the New Era in the quarter finals with the better record.
At this time from the National Div. EC Cards won the bracket, Missouri Clowns came in second and Team New Era and the Nosotros were the wild cards into the quarter finals. In the other bracket, Atlanta Bulls won their Division with the Great Lakes Red Sox also qualified for the playoffs.
The 2 top teams, EC Cards and Atlanta Bulls drew a bye in the quarter finals.
