UNC Baseball: Playoff time in the summer leagues

With classes starting in less than three weeks, it’s time to wind down summer baseball.

Syndication: The Greenville News Ken Ruinard / staff / USA TODAY NETWORK

The calendar has turned to August, summer school is now over, the first day of class for UNC students is in less than three weeks, football practice has begun, and the summer baseball leagues are starting to end their seasons.

For some Tar Heels, that’s been with a celebration of a championship already.

The Ohio Valley League and Ripken League have already moved through their playoffs, and their champions were none other than Reece Holbrook’s Full Count Rhythm and John Long’s Bethesda Big Train. You’ll see how each contributed to their titles, but any time you play in an organized sport the goal is to win a title. It had to feel good for both of them after a disappointing end to the baseball season to be able to celebrate a title. They can now head back to Chapel Hill after taking a little time off before classes start back up.

Other leagues have also wrapped up their seasons, but the playoffs for the big two — the Cape Cod League and Coastal Plains League — are just getting started. We’ll know more about how other Tar Heels have done next week, but let’s take a peek and see how the summer has gone for the Tar Heels all across the country.
