If you had asked realists in Worcester a few weeks ago whether there was hope the Tornadoes would be in the Championship Series you might have gotten a few laughs. The Tornadoes struggled at the end of the year with 8 straight losses. They turned it around though and were able to sweep the stunned New Jersey Jackals.
The CAN-AM League playoffs remind me of the Final Four in college basketball where in essence if you can make it in anything is possible. The Tornadoes finished the 2009 season in fourth place 13 games behind the first place Brockton Rox who ironically were defeated in the playoffs by the 3rd place Quebec Capitales.
You will be able to see Worcester’s own Rich Gedman and the Tornadoes in the 2009 Championship series here at Fitton Field tomorrow and Wednesday. As of this writing there are plenty of tickets left. Let’s go out and support the Tornadoes in their quest for a second championship!
