Another CMWS is in the books
Midland Redskins cart home another championship trophy
The 53rd annual Connie Mack World Series came to an end today at Ricketts Park in Farmington with the Midland Redskins claiming their first championship since 2011 and their 15th title in team history.
This year's edition avoided the lengthy rain delays that had plagued the event in recent years, despite the fact that the field was expanded to 17 teams and a pool-play bracket was introduced, stretching the CMWS to nine days.
Thousands of fans poured into the various ballparks that hosted CMWS games over that time period, including an especially strong crowd for Saturday's semifinal round. To read all about today's championship game, turn to page 1B.
