The Welles Park Minor Cardinals couldn't come through, losing the World Series to the Red Sox, just as their major league counterparts did last fall.
The final in game two of the best-of-three series was 4-1 Red Sox. The photo above is Mark delivering a pitch in the fourth inning; he was 1-for-3 at the plate, and allowed two unearned runs on the mound.
Congratulations to him and his team anyway for a successful season.
Now let's go out and have the Cubs beat those Cardinals when they return to Wrigley Field in 12 days!
[editor's note, by Al] Thanks to BCB reader Ken, who Photoshopped the photo for me and sent the new version posted here, in which the colors "pop" a little more.
