York Captures Playoff Spot: For the first time in their short history, the York Revolution have made the playoffs. No use for me to tell you all about. Here are Jeff Johnson’s and Jim Seip’s reports.

Ducks Capture Spot, Too: Yes, the Long Island Ducks have also made the playoffs.

Here are some exclusive photos from the York locker room and on the field after they captured a playoff spot. Thanks to the Revolution for sending them along.

Congratulations to the members of the York Revolution! Good luck in the playoffs!

The played great. Winning 2 out of 3 in Newark down the stretch, they deserve it.

I will save my tirade on the split season for the hot stove league.

I am with Ken and Paul congrats go out to York. What an excellent job in the second half. They have a solid squad and they will be formidable in the playoffs. Playoffs are setting up to be interesting. Many believe that Camden will just lay down to Long Island but I still think there is a sleeping giant there that might awaken. Nic jackson and LJ Bierbaum are terrific players. If Lima comes back it could get interesting.
Aspito, Ashby,Clemente,Dryer and Esquival make York real interesting to watch. And the Patriots are just solid top to bottom. Long Island will be tough to beat for anyone if they play as they did the last month.

Also–just wanted to offer well wishes to Mark Burgoon who recently left the Somerset Patriots front office to move on to greener pastures. Mark was always a big help to our family, first my father and then my brother and I and he will be sorely missed by all Patriots fans who had the pleasure to work with him. Good luck and God Bless.

The summer really is leaving us…..

The Ducks’ website says they’ve won the second half, even though there’s three games left and the Crabs are behind by three. What’s the tiebreaker in this scenario? First half record?

Kevin raises a good point I was thinking the same thing when I went to the site this morning to research buying tickets to the playoff games in LI. I always thought that baseball superstition prevented you from claiming a title before it was won outright. Oops.

Thank you Jake for giving the FYI on Mark Burgoon, My husband I were unaware that he had left. Mark is such a wonderful young man who was very helpful to us and so kind to our boys. He was also a huge help with our church and softball league functions. Good Luck Mark. The Patriots won’t be the same without you.

Great photos from York. They look like little boys just thrilled to have won their division.
I am confused by the lead story on the Atlantic League site. Have the Ducks won their division. They are two up with two to play. What happens if they tie with the Blue Crabs.

Please explain guys.

By the way. Those of us who have gone to Pats games for years love to see that Jason Olson, George Sandel, Sol Soleson, Matt Dryer and Byron Batson have done well and will be in the playoffs. These guys have a great deal of heart and should make it exciting.

The Ducks-Southern Maryland situation is interesting. If the Ducks lose their last two and the Blue Crabs win their final pair, they tie for the half. They were 10-10 head-to-head. The next tiebreaker can’t be overall record since the Blue Crabs are currently 73-65 and the Ducks 71-67, which would mean the Crabs would be four games better at the end in case of a tie. So what could the tiebreaker possibly be?
