'Red Hot Delgado Earns MVP'
By Sterling Endicott, Boston Wolfpack
The Boston Wolfpack captured the
2018 55+ MSBL Las Vegas Kickoff Classic going 3-0 in pool play then
defeating the defending champion Chicago North Legends in the semifinal
and San Diego North in the finals.
With Las Vegas being
cool and blustery, the Wolfpack hitting was red hot led by Jose Delgado
and Dave Benedict who went a combined 20-22 in the pool round. Boston
got solid pitching from Edgardo Mercado, Sean O’Connor, Rodney Tafoya in
defeating Chicago, San Diego, and the Diamond Dream Mustangs. The game
with San Diego had six lead changes and came down to whomever was up
last. Carmelo Bastian laced an RBI single and time expired with the
Wolfpack ahead 13-12.
The playoffs were a repeat of the
same match ups with Jim Kearchner throwing a shut out over the Chicago
North Legends in the semifinal and Mike Smith earning the victory over San Diego North in the Championship game. Team MVP went to Jose Delgado who finished the tournament up with 14 hits with five doubles and three triples.
