Defending State Champ, Rockland County vs Grand Island Square Off at 1PM Today

If Rockland Wins Game 1, Grand Island goes home as the second best team in New York State

Rain will have no impact on todays battle between 2016 State Chanmps, Rockland County and their opponent from Western New York, Grand Island Post.

Not many got to see a classic battle that ended at 1:30 AM at Murnane Field between Rockland County and Grand Island. These two teams have fought their way to the championship game on arms, wheels and strong hitting.  Watching these two battle in the undefeated bracket was like Ali and Frazier.  Grand Island had Rockland against the ropes and everyone thought that the fight was over, but Rockland took all the punches and swung back to tie the score on eventually win it in the 11th inning.

Today battle should be no different except for one thing...if Grand Island misfires in the first game, number 14 of the week, there will be no 15th game to decide the who the Champ will be.  If Grand Island pulls off the Losers Bracket upset, then hang on and don't miss the final game between these two beasts just 30 minutes following the first game.

This time there will be plenty of daylight to decide the 2017 NEWYORK STATE AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL CHAMPION!
