2020 Connecticut Collegiate Baseball League playoffs

SIMSBURY, July 31, 2020 – Eight of the Connecticut Collegiate Baseball League’s 10 teams are playing in the league’s annual championship tournament beginning Sunday.

The Manchester Eagles (14-4-1) are the top seed in the double-elimination tournament with the expansion Brass City Bombers (14-5) out of Waterbury seeded No. 2. The Manchester Meagles (11-7-2) are seeded third with the Manchester Mavericks (12-8) seeded fourth.

The Meagles and the Mavericks finished with the same amount of points but the Meagles got the No. 3 seed because they swept two games from the Mavericks this summer. Teams earn three points for a win, two for a tie and one for participating in game – a move to discourage teams from forfeiting games.

The Southington Shock (5-12-2) and Wallingford Silver Storm (7-10) are not participating in the tournament. In terms of safety and caution, the town health directors in Southington and Wallingford asked both teams to stop playing because one player had a positive COVID-19 test followed by two negative tests, according to CCBL Commission Tim Vincent. The 14-day quarantine period doesn’t end in time for the teams to join the playoffs.

Vincent said Southington and Wallingford will play a three-game series on August 5-7 to conclude their seasons after the quarantine period ends.

The Manchester Mavericks are the defending league champions.
