Mets lift National Baseball League trophy

The London Mets defeated the Richmond Flames 11-4 in a one-game 9-inning final to take the 2008 NBL title. Only one other game was possible on a rain-affected Sunday, and in that the Herts Falcons got a deserved 6-3 victory over the Oxford Kings in the AAA championship game.

Originally, a three-game final was scheduled to decide the NBL title, but with one of Roundshaw’s two diamonds rightly deemed unfit for baseball by the umpiring crew the number of games that could be played was immediately reduced. It was a testament to the drainage of Roundshaw that any baseball was possible at all on an exceptionally wet weekend. The AA-final was postponed.
