Region 9 Hardball Show: Hitter of the year and setting up the playoffs

The Dixie Flyers completed their remarkable eight-game run to clinch the Region 9 championship this week. Desert Hills did its part to keep the pressure on, but the Flyers are the champs and have earned the right to host Saturday’s upcoming playoff pod. In the show today, we’ll highlight the three series from last week, plus talk about the top plays and numbers from the final week of region play.

We’ll also look closer at each team and show you the Holbrook Asphalt play of the week. And don’t miss the Stapley Pharmacy picture of the week on this show and every week.

Bakston Freight Systems helps us bring you a special segment this week, where we’ll talk about the champs in many of our individual batting and pitching categories, including the unquestioned hitter of the year.

The Region 9 Hardball Show is brought to you by Revere Health.
