Although it was a difficult season, the Ice Weasels finished first place in our Fall 2000 league. Ultimately the season ended in a 3-way tie (the Ice Weasels, the Night Wings, and the Master Batters all had 4-2 records). Ties are broken in the following manner:
1. Compare the records the tied teams had against each other.
2. Compare the run differential in games played bewteen tied teams.
3. Compare the run differential of tied teams in all games played during the season.
Each of the tied teams had 2-2 records against one another. However, the Ice Weasels run differential against the other two tied teams was +11 runs. The Night Wings run differential against the other tied teams is -3 runs. The Master Batters had a run differential against the tied teams of -8 runs. Thus, the tie is broken in favor of the Ice Weasels, and second place goes to the Night Wings.
The Ice Weasels scored more runs than any other team in the league (88 total, 11 more than the next best number), and allowed fewer runs than any other team in the league (43 total, 20 fewer than the next best number).
The season's end was filled with excitement. We had just beaten the Arc Angels, which assured us second place in the league. We were sitting around after the game when someone approached us and told us he needed players. He said he was with the Night Wings, and that they were playing the Master Batters. Knowing that if they won the game, we would finish in first place, we immediately agreed. Cory, Newton, Aimee, Brandy, and Krissy played for them. It was an extremely close game the entire time, but we were committed to winning it. In the end the Night Wings won 7-5 and the Ice Weasels were the season champions.
The Ice Weasels played in the Fall 2000 postseason tournament. The first game was a forfeit, but the second two games were harsh losses. The Weasels did not play well, and a number of our regular players weren't able to make it to the tournament.
