Menasha, WI - The 2017 Sheboygan A's baseball season came to a close last night, as the A's dropped their semifinal match up to the Menasha Macs.
The game got out of hand early as extremely questionable umpiring led to frustration and ejections.
The Macs jumped out to an early 9-1 lead through three innings, and it went down hill from there.
Despite the 19-1 final score, pitching wasn't the biggest issue for the A's Wednesday night - it was the defense. The defense committed six errors in the game.
Joe Vyskocil led the offense with two hits. Harry Steldt had the A's lone RBI.
The Macs will advance to the NEWBL championship for the sixth straight season. They will take on the Appleton Legends Friday night in Appleton in the single-game final. The Macs are the current four-time defending NEWBL champions.
With the loss, the A's finish the season with a final record of 32-25. The team finished second in the Wisconsin State League, third in the Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League, and fell in the semifinals of the Wisconsin Class A State Tournament.
This marks the fifth straight season in which the Macs have ousted the A's from the NEWBL playoffs.
The Sheboygan A's are members of the Wisconsin State League and Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League. The A's have helped develop more than 41 players that have reached professional baseball, including 2002 World Series Champion Jarrod Washburn (Anaheim Angels).
