Hamburg Post Players Are State Baseball Champions
Hamburg Post 527 (Erie County) broke the Rockland Pirates’ streak, winning the New York State American Legion Baseball Championship. Rockland Pirates Post 130 of Stony Point (Rockland County) had the title for three years in a row.
Unlike the first game of Wednesday’s championship round, where both teams kept each other at bay until Hamburg scored a single winning run, the final game featured good hits and rallies by both teams.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, Rockland was ahead, 8-7, but Hamburg stole home on a throw and then scored another run on an error, winning the championship game, 9-8.
The tournament was played at Murnane Field’s Donovan Stadium in Utica.
