Eugene finished with the worst overall record in the NWL ... Now they are in the championship series ..

How did that happen?

The NWL is split into two 4 team divisions (North and South). Eugene is in the South.
The season is split into first and second halves.
The winners of each half square off in the semi-finals.
However, if the same team wins both halves, the team with the second best record during the second half of the season advances to the playoffs.

Hillsboro won both halves in the South.
Eugene finished last in the first half.  Their 2nd half record was an underwhelming 17-21 but that was better than the records of Salem-Keizer (16-22) and Boise (14-24).

Reminds me of when the Cubs were fighting for the playoffs during the second half of the strike year despite a poor record.

The Emeralds rally in the 9th and win the NWL title on a balk with 2 out.

Ramos: 4-4-2-2-0-4

Even Jim DeShaies would have to admit that this was a legitimate balk call

The Cubs named Jared Young and Matt Swarmer their minor league players of the year.

Swarmer kind of got lost in the mix but had a nice season. He has extreme flyball ratios but is a big strike thrower. Should be a brjones fav.

Young came out of nowhere to excel at South Bend and hold his own at Myrtle Beach. Swing looks impressive on film.
