Talbot,Flemington Co-Champs of Silver Ball

The two MAVBBL entries in the Silver Ball Tournament in Mumford, New York represented the league well.  After several years of going up to the event, both the Neshanock and the Fair Plays were scheduled to meet in the championship of the 3 day event in upper New York State.  Flemington took one of its best clubs up to Mumford and walked away with 4 wins against the Rochester Grangers, the Cleveland Blues and two local clubs-the Live Oak and the Rochesters.  The Blues and Grangers are two of the best vintage base ball clubs from the Mid West and the Neshanock won 6-4 and 16-11 respectively.  Talbot faired almost just as well as they downed two local clubs- the Live Oak and the Victory BBC and then squeaked by the Rochester Grangers 13-12.  The Fair Plays tied the Sylvania Great Black Swamp Frogs 11-11 to get to the championship for the 3rd year in a row.  Alas, though, mother nature wouldn’t cooperate and the Neshanock and Fair Plays were declared co-champions of the 2012 Silver Ball championship.
