Season Wrap-up

The 2012 Red Sox season came to a close after they were swept by the Mustangs 2-0 in the three game series.  The Muckdogs advanced to face the Comets in the GPMABL championship.

The team was much improved after a rough start to the rebuilding year.  With more new guys than returning ones and a new manager, the team started the year 4-12.  The pieces started coming together in the 2nd half as the Sox went 6-7 in the last 13 games of the regular season, and stunned the defending champion A's in the first round of the playoffs.  Next season appears promising as the team will return a solid group of players.

The Red Sox were proud to send five players to the GPMABL All-star game held at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington, Delaware. The guys represented the team well, and had the following stats:

Bret Binder, P: 2IP, 1H, 0 ER, 1K
Rich Ryan, OF: BB, SB
Jason McDowell, OF: 3B, R
Shaun Frazier, SS: 1B, RBI
Steve McDermet, C: HBP, SB, R

Outfielder Joe Gorman was also voted an All-star, but was unable to attend.

Manager Brian Freiland also attended the game, snapped a few photos, and helped collect a $170 donation for the Aiden Peterson Foundation - a education fund set up for the son of our fallen Red Sox teammate Don Peterson.

Here is some of Brian's handy work behind the camera.
