It's Softball Sign of the the TIMES again
as the The New York Times won its fourth straight New York Press League title with and 8-0 win over Sports Illustrated.
Mike Peckins won his second straight MVP of the playoffs with a 6-hit shutout and threw 16 scoreless innings in the post season.
The New York Press League has been playing since 1977 and this is the first time a club has won four straight post season titles.
The New York Times did win four in a row from '77 to '81, but the League did not play in 1978 due to the great Writers' Strike of '78. The game marked the end of the line for long time Sports Illustrated pitcher and utility man Doug Goodman. Goodman, who took the loss allowing only 5 earned runs, was one of only 2 active players left who played in each of the 38 seasons of the New York Press League. Goodman also served as the Commissioner of the Press League for 10 seasons.
Congrats, True Dynsasty
