Find a League In Your Area
By Steven Almany, A’s manager
Despite being relatively new to the league and with a young
team made up of 18-23 year olds, the A’s captured the regular season title with
a 22-2-2 record. With early player injuries and late arrival from college
for some of the players, the A’s got off to a 1-1-1 start but didn't lose
again until the last game of the regular season.
The team is made of a close group of players from the Bloomfield area with most having played Varsity high school
together. A few have gone on to play in college but return in the summer
for the joy of baseball, summer and long standing friendships.
We had five Detroit All-Stars named
to the 2017 team: Todd Weiss, Perry Klemanski, Matt Almany, Conor Wahl and Preston Smith.
The success of this year’s team is already spreading locally
and the A's hope to add even more talent to the team of 2018.
