2013 MISAL League Baseball Championship

In a thrilling game Monday afternoon May 13, the Yeshiva Knights beat Southern Maryland Christian Academy 12-4 to win the 2013 MISAL League Baseball Championship. It was truly a team effort highlighted by outstanding pitching, sparkling fielding, and hitting contributions from the middle and bottom portions of the team’s lineup.

The game started out as though the Knights were going to win in a blow out with both Binyamin Edelstein and Sammy Mellman rocketing hits to get an early run over. Then the SMCA settled in and it was a pitchers’ duel with the score 2-2 after three innings.

Yeshiva then broke the game open in the fourth inning scoring 5 runs, with key hits by Yehuda Edelstein, Sammy Weisman, Meir Samberg (double), and Chaiby Leiman (double).Yeshiva then continued the hot streak with the same five through nine batters in the lineup, with Menachem Samberg getting a hit and the lead run. Yeshiva was now up 11-2 after 5 innings and firmly in control. Pitching  ace Chaiby Leiman muted a potential comeback and closed SMCA down the rest of the way for a 12-4 win. 

The results maybe should not have been so surprising as the Yeshiva of Greater Washington also finished the MISAL league undefeated at 6-0.

Thank you to all who came out to support the team.

Mazel Tov to Coach Aaron Mellman, assistant coach Eli Teichman and the entire team on a great season!
