The playoff race is heating up, as the “All Star Israel Sports Camp” softball league heads for the final lap of the regular season. Only 2 weeks away from the playoffs and some teams are starting to feel the heat, while others are cruising to the postseason.
Top-seeded teams Shechter and Tzionim sit comfortably in their playoff spots, while Good Old Boys and Grossman control their own fate, as their final 2 contests are must win games.
The upcoming week includes some exciting games with huge playoff implications. Tzionim are all tied up with Shechter at the top of the standings. Tzionim faces off first against MMJ, and later takes on Morningside Translation, with the number one seed and a first round bye on the line.
Good Old Boys take on Jerry’s Kids, as Good Old Boys are playing for their playoff lives, while Jerry’s Kids also fight to stay above the playoff line. Grossman’s playoff fate also hangs in the balance, as they take on MMJ, who are doing all they can to grab that ever so valuable first round bye.
Shechter looks to keep their perfect season alive against Lobos, who are creeping up right behind them in the standings, and this game is expected to be as intense as they come.
Meanwhile, Mevaseret takes on Good Old Boys in a do-or-die showdown, with the winner still in the Holyland Series Playoff hunt, and the loser likely relegated to Tier 2.
As the season heads toward the finish line, it’s still anyone’s game. Top seeds can slip down the rankings, lower seeds can gain playoff berths, and there’s always hope for a Cinderella run for the Holyland Series Trophy. Anything can happen in this tight playoff race, which is why sports are such beautiful things.
