After being rained out in 2011, the NJSSA 50's Tournament was played under partly cloudy skies at Linden's Memorial Park and Tremley Fields. In the A Division finals, Preferred Freezer (Middlesex), who lost to the Roselle Legion (Union) team earlier 17-13, turned the tables 5-2 to win the Championship game. Strong pitching and excellent defense carried the day. In the B Division finals, Stick with Perfection (Morris), making their first NJSSA Tournament appearance, went undefeated beating Check X Change (Middlesex) in the Championship game. The C Division was all Middlesex with Metuchen Savings sweeping the Drifters 18-5 and 12-4.
Congratulations to the Champions and all of the teams that entered the Tournament. See you all next year and bring some additional teams from your County Leagues.
