Just a quick note to augment the 2 line narrative about the minor league championship game....congrats to Draper, et al AKA the "Midgets" as they were the "Cinderella Story" of the Alpine Minor League. Finishing the season in third place (included completing a perfect game...yes, a "perfect" game - no runs/no hits/no walks for the opponent), they had come from behind victories in their last two playoff games to clinch the Alpine League title. And true to form, did the same in the last innings of the All-City title game against the Rattlers! The boys (and 1 girl!) always had a cheer ready for their teammate as they entered the batter's box and the coaches always had an encouraging word for each player - win or lose.
Well done to a team who may not have had the most talent, but clearly, during the season and post season, had the most fun!

Congrats to these great kids - but I've always wondered why the teams are named only for the sponsor - Peak Performance Chiropractic as the name of a team? For little kids? How about some real team names instead?
