Needless to say, Munford was the comeback team of the 2019 MSCL season in all divisions. Munford started off slow, but they continued to stay competitive in all of their games.
Well, that all changed when tournament time hit, Munford knew how to do one thing very well, and that was hit the baseball. While interviewing a Munford fan, I asked him, "What changed and helped this team go from a 3 win regular season team to tournament champions?", and they fan stated the hard work of those 2 coaches sitting on those bucked (as he pointed in the direction of the coaches sitting outside the dugout). He was referring to both of the Munford coaches who willed their team to believe they weren't just playing for some trophy, they were playing for the city they are from, the players that have worn the Munford jersey, and most of all they were playing for the future of Munford Baseball. Well one thing I can confirm, the Munford Cougars are here to stay, as they ran through the West Tournament scoring over 10 runs in each of their games, with a 12-7 win over Briarcrest in the Championship Game.
Once again, this teaches a lesson that most players don't understand at 12 years old, baseball is about hard work, heart, and trusting one another no matter what happens. Us at the MSCL are honored to call the Munford Cougars champions of the West Silver Championship.
