BEAR RIVER TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS OUTLOOK
As the weather heats up so is the Bear River Little League major playoff race. The battle for the second and final Tournament of Champions bid could very well be played out this Saturday at 7 p.m. on the major field, between the Dodgers and Giants. B.R.L.L. will send only it's top two teams to compete in the District 11 area one tournament. Where they will compete with the likes of power-house organizations such as Tri-Cities, Rocklin and Lincoln. But in order to get that opportunity to represent the local league, the Giants (3-5) will have to go through the Dodgers (5-4). Earlier this year season the Dodgers dropped the Giants in a 10 inning game by a score of 3-2. A win for the Giants would bring their loss record even with that of the Dodgers. Both teams would have defeated each other one time. That will bring about a debate if neither team lost another contest. Both teams could possible end the season with five losses along with a 1-1 head to head record. It could come down to, who did you lose to and who did you beat or by adding total score of both games together to decide who is the better team and most deserving of that final bid.
The BR Angels (8-1) have a clear handle on the first place spot and should be a lock for the TOC bid if they continue to play consistent baseball.
