Here are the video highlights of the 2014 Midget New Era Finals Championship game held last night at Clipper Stadium. The Pioneers won in the bottom of the 8th inning thanks to a Conner Brown single to right field that drove home Dan Eshelman for a 5 to 4 win against the Hempfield Black Knights. Hempfield had the bases loaded with one out in the top of the 8th inning. But SWS relief lefty pitcher Brandon Nickel induced an inning ending 6 to 4 to 3 double play ending the Black Knights’ threat.
This is the third New Era title for this group of SWS players at different age groups over the past three years. This was a great game. Both teams were aggressive on the base paths. Both defenses were outstanding. And the pitching on both sides was clutch when it needed to be. These two teams will be very competitive in next season’s L-L League.
