‘Three Peat Propels Warriors’

This is hard to write because I just don’t want to acknowledge the season being over.
The 2020 Warriors reached the championship game five years in a row, achieving their fourth victory and third straight, beating the Loudoun Beavers in a 9 to 1 win. Our pitching was solid with our starter, Stephen Schiavone going nine innings with 10 K’s. Josh Mearkle behind the plate caught a clean game and was our rock all year long. Defensively it was an error free game, allowing only one run to score. Offensively the Warriors stayed hot putting up nine runs and for the season putting up a run differential against opposing teams of 125 plus runs.
In a year we all want to put behind us, baseball transported us to a better place and gave many of us a newfound appreciation for competition, comradery and focus. A big thank you to the DCMSBL leadership team for making the season happen.
