This was the year of the emerging 208ís. In danger of overtaking the BigMacs with the choke label the 208ís were not to be undone this year and easily defeated the Junkyard Dogs in 5 games the defending champion Avolanche in a hard fought 6 game series and make the final look easy as they swept the Enforcers who were looking for their 4th SDSL championship!

The Avolanche added to their impressive banner total, now at 5, with a 7 game series win against the equally strong Enforcers. The Avolanche, beat the Big Macs in the quarter finals, 4-1, and took a hard fought series against the Lucky 7, 4-2. The Enforcers route to the finals was with a bye in the first round. The Sluggers beat the 208ís in the quarter final, solidifying the 208ís status as a team that cannot win when it counts! The Sluggers than played the Enforcers and at least won a game this time as the Enforcers easily handled the Sluggers 4-1. This set up the finals with the Enforcers trying to catch the Avolanche in banners at 4. The series was hard fought with no team able to win more than 1 in a row. The final game ended up anti-climatic as the Avolanche, in their second 7 game final series in two years, beat the Enforcers 12-3 to win the 2007 title and add a 5th banner to the rafters!

A Brand new champion was crowned in the 2006 season as the Triple A beat out the Avolanche 8-6 in the final game of a hard fought 7 game series. All the games were very close except for a 24-8 blowout win for the Avolanche as the Triple A had to startToma Oka in place of the injured Ben Sheets. Oka was nowhere to be found after the beating. Ashes of his card were later found in the fire pit beside the winless Roger Clemens. The road to the final was fairly easy for the two very strong and evenly matched teams. The Avolanche easily swept the Big Macs in the first semi final. The Big Macs reached the semi final by beating the Lucky 7 four games to two.The Triple A easily swept their semi final against the 208ís. The 208ís shocked the SDSL with an easy 4 games to 1 win against the heavily favoured Enforcers to reach the final.

Once again the defending champion Junkyard Dogs advanced to the playoffs on the last series of the season, putting fear into every other team as thoughts of three-peat was in the air. The Dogs easily got by the Avolanche but ran into a brick wall named the Enforcers and saw their run end in the semi-finals. The Tuggers Nuts dominated the Catalyst in the quarterfinals and surprisingly easily beat one of the favourites in the T-Bombers in the semi-finals. This brought the clash of the titans in the final with the undefeated Enforcers going against the hitting happy Tuggers Nuts. The series proved to be one of the best in strato history as after 7 complete games both teams were tied with 3 wins a piece and were tied after 9 innings of game 7. Finally though history was made in the bottom of the 10th as the Enforcers scored the championship winning run to defeat the Tuggers Nuts and become the first team to not lose a series all season long. To top off a great season the Enforcers also broke the record for best winning percentage of all time.

These playoffs saw the Junkyard Dogs limp in to the playoffs on the last game of the season over the Avolanche. This marked the first time that the Avolanche did not make the playoffs. In both semi-final games, upsets were the norm, as the BigMacs easily handled the very surprised Enforcers 4-0 and the defending champion Junkyard Dogs dispatched the heavily favourite T-Bombers. The Finals saw the perennial underdog and under achiever BigMacs take on the defending champion Junkyard Dogs. Fan support seemed to be on the BigMacs side as they were now in their 4th championship final looking for their first win. The stars seemed to be aligned for the BigMacs as they took a 3-1 series lead and a 7-0 lead in game 5. Crews started to plaster the BigMacs lockeroom with plastic and plenty of champagne in anticipation of their first ever win. The Junkyard Dogs had other ideas in mind however, as they came back to take games 5,6 and 7 to repeat as SDSL champions!! This left the BigMacs manager bewildered and fans calling for his head, saying he canít win the big one. Thatís 0-4 for the BigMacs and 2-0 for the Junkyard Dogs.

The first round of the playoffs saw the Junkyard Dogs, whom had never won a playoff series, play the defending champion Avolanche. In what can only be considered an upset the Dogs beat the Avolanche 4-2. In the other playoff the Tuggers Nuts, who lost first overall on the last day of the season, defeated the Enforcers. The Enforcers found themselves down 3-1 and were able to force a 7th and deciding game.

In the semi-finals, The upstart Junkyard Dogs made an improbable and historical comeback after being down 3-0 were able to take the AK Attack to a 7th and deciding game. The game went extra innings and the Cinderella Junkyard Dogs came through with a 4-3 series win. The other semi-final saw a repeat of the final regular season series between the Tuggers Nuts and the surprising Elite division champs Da Playas. The Nuts were not to be undone this time around and easily handled Da Playas in a 4-2 win.

The Final saw the Cinderella story unfold as the Junkyard Dogs took home their first championship against the very porous defence of the Tuggers Nuts. The Dogs took the championship in a very easy 4 game sweep.

In the quarter finals, the defending champions Enforcers easily took down the T-Bombers but ran into a brick wall in facing the first place finishing Avolanche. The Enforcers 3-Peat ended with a stunning 4 game sweep at the hands of the Avolanche. In the other quarter final the upstart AK Attack were being managed by their minor league coach as the real manager was in meetings down south. The upset of the playoffs were the Attack taking down the Junkyard Dogs in 7 games. The Dogs lost Barry Bonds, Carlos Delgado and Moises Alou in the 4th, 5th and 6th games of the series. The Attack were now set to play the BigMacs and they gave the Macs a scare as the Attack took them to the wall in a thrilling 7 game final. This set up the 2 division winners in a championship showdown. The Macs were looking for their first ever title while the Avolanche were looking for their 4th. In a thrilling back and forth series, with no team winning 2 in a row, it went down to the wire in a 7th and deciding championship game. The Macs, however, would have to wait another year as the Avolanche took home their 4th championship!

The finals are now a thing of the past. With chants of REPEAT emanating through the air the Enforcers overcame the Tuggers strong starting pitching to win the SDSL championship in 6 games. The Tuggers took early leads in 5 of the 6 games but their once vaunted bullpen became their nemesis in blowing 3 of the 4 leads. The Tuggers took out IRod in the 3rd game for balance of the series, however, the Enforcers did not miss a beat and Piazza came through with shining colours and kept the Tuggers running game at bay. Congratulations to the 2001 SDSL champion ENFORCERS!


The first quarter final series saw The Enforcers take their first step in trying to repeat as SDSL champions by destroying the underdog Devils. The games were all high scoring as the Enforcers overcame a 14-6 deficit to win 21-18 in the fourth and final game in what was the highest scoring playoff game in SDSL history.
The Enforcers escaped the blowouts without any injuries and have Kevin Brown ready to start game 1 against the Junkyard Dogs in one of the semi-finals.


The TuggersNuts/BigMacs series ended as expected with the Nuts defeating the Macs 4-1. The only interesting part was in the final game; the Macs rolled an injury onto Ken Caminiti's card. With the Nuts manager reeling and worrying about the semi-finals, he pulled a rabbit out of a hat and rolled the injury back to the Macs!


The Semiís were complete and another investigation was in progress. In what can only be called the dirtiest series in SDSL history, the TuggersNuts upset the first place Avolanche and in the process hurt 5 of the Avalanches' starting 9 players. In two instances the Nuts manager rolled back the injury! In the final game the Avolanche had all 5 starters hurt!!  The Nuts went into the championship with Ken Caminiti hurt for the first 3 games.


In the other semi-final the Enforcers continued their quest to back-to-back championships by defeating the leader in the Elite division, Junkyard Dogs, 4-2. The cap to the series was the capability of the Enforcers to hit a grand slam by rolling in the 1-3 range; the 4-20 range was an out! This resourcefulness was a direct result to winning that game and the series. The Enforcers had to play the first 3 games of the finals without the help of Bobby Abreu

Due to an unforeseen bankruptcy of the Maniacs franchise, the league went to a preliminary playoff round with the Junkyard Dogs receiving a bye
for being in first place.  The series were the Devils beating the Sluggers 4-2, the Tuggers Nuts beating the Avolanche easily 4-1 and the Big Macs
losing in an upset to the Enforcers 4-2.  The quarter finals were then set up as the Junkyard Dogs against the Enforcers and the Devils against the
Tuggers Nuts.  In another upset the Enforcers advanced to the finals for the first time as they took the Junkyard Dogs 4-2 while the Tuggers Nuts
ended the Devils first ever playoff appearance in 5 games with a 4-1 series win. The final turned out anti-climatic as experience took over and
the Tuggers Nuts won for their third time as they beat the Enforcers 4-2.
