Early May 2016 fits in nicely with some of its brutal counterparts. The one that sticks out in my mind is 2006. The SWCL East was brutally competitive in baseball that season with 5 teams battling for the crown. We (Northbridge) went on a hot streak in early May before the rains brought the season to crashing halt. We were suppose to play Millbury but the game was postponed 4 times. We finally made the game up on Memorial Day weekend and by that time the outright league title was on the line. Thanks to Dave Wallen's 400 ft (guesstimate) blast to RF in the 1st inning we cruised to a 11-4 win and the crown. We were able to win because of pitching. The last two weeks of the season we played something like 8 games in 11 days.
