The Leviathan Celebrate their 1st ever Tourney Championship!

First the first time in their 12 year history, the White Stone Leviathan won the League Tournament Championship! The Leviathan battled their brothers from the White Stone Behemoths and were victorious by a score of 12-6 on Tuesday night at Fireman’s Park in Delafield. After a short break in between games (Behemoth defeated DML 9-3 at Legions earlier that evening), the two teams started the Championship game. There was a lot of excitement in the park as fans were still packing in as the first pitches were thrown by Adam Andrus.  The Behemoths jumped out early to a 2-0 lead in the top of the 1st, but the Leviathan got one back in their half of the 1st. After holding the Behemoths scoreless in the 2nd, the Leviathan put together another big inning as they tallied 8 men home to take a commanding 9-2 lead. The game wouldn’t see much more scoring as teams went back and forth with 1 run innings. Going into the last inning (top 7), the Behemoths were down 8 and needed a huge inning. The first few guys reached base and things were looking a bit scary for the Leviathan as 2 runs were knocked in. The guys in red regained their composure after a few errors and made enough plays to get the 3 outs needed and earned their first-ever Tournament Championship!

Also, 3rd baseman Noah Jeanson and left-fielder Jake Andrus both made spectacular diving plays in the field.  A few players shined at the plate for the Leviathan: Noah Jeanson (2-3, 2B, HR, 2R, 3RBI), Matt Sell (2-2, 2B, R, 2RBI), Luke Schweng (2-3, R, 2RBI), and Brad Fraser (2-3, 2R, RBI).

After the game, the guys celebrated with hugs and high fives–and player/manager Adam Andrus was doused with Lemon-Lime Gatorade. The championship is especially significant to players Matt Sell, Luke Dye, Adam Andrus, Josh Watson, & Jake Andrus who have been on the team since it’s first year in the league back in 2007.
The Leviathan finish the season with an 11-1 overall record while winning the 2018 League Championship and winning the 2018 League Tournament Championship.

Congrats to all the players who have played so hard this entire season! Also, a huge thanks to the remarkable Leviathan fans who have supported this team all summer long.

Back to Back Champs!

432ac252d087bfc9c536d56549154474It was finally time for the undefeated Leviathan to take on the one-loss Dr Martin Luther Church. A matchup between the first and second place teams in the league standings. A win meant a League title for one of the teams. With everything to gain, the two teams battled for 7 innings and the Leviathan prevailed by a score of 7-4. It was certainly a defensive struggle, as neither team could come up with a big breakout inning. The score was tied at 2 after one inning, and then DMLC jumped out to a 4-2 lead after 2 before the guys in red tied it up 4-4 in the 3rd inning. The Leviathan then went on to score the next 3 runs and never looked back as they captured their 2nd straight regular-season crown and secured the #1 overall seed in the conference tournament.  Besides the strong pitching by Adam Andrus and the rock-solid Leviathan defense, the team had some offensive team leaders on the night: Josh Watson led the team with 3 hits (3-3, 2R) and Noah Jeanson crushed a ball over the left-center field fence (2-3, HR, R, 2RBI). Josh and Noah were surprisingly the only 2 players to have a multiple hit game.

The Leviathan are now 8-0 on the year and have won the League title for a second straight year while earning the #1 seed in the League Tourney. DMLC falls to 7-2 but remains the #2 seed in the League Tournament.
