The Broward Waverunners came out on top of this contest, shooting down the Collier County Loggerheads in the FWBL Semi-finals by a score of 11-4. Walks and errors doomed the Loggerheads from the beginning while everything seemed to go right for the Waverunners, which move on to the FWBL Championship Series against the top-seed Miami-Dade Red Snappers. Waverunner outfielder, JP Lopez, who hit the first homer of the FWBL regular season, also hit the first home run of the post season, smashing a bomb in his first at bat to set the tone of the game. Waverunner ace, Juan Ruiz, pitched a complete game, going all nine innings to earn the win.
Game 1 of the FWBL Championship Series is set for Saturday, November 21, 2015 at Pompano Beach Baseball Park. First pitch is 2:30 pm. Miami will start Ace Cole Bumbales and Broward will send their ace JJ O’Neill to the mound.
