As the Woodbury Heights Little League regular season comes  to an end, the Gateway Interleague playoffs get closer. The playoffs are the test for teams to see if they can bring home the Gateway Interleague title with their skill, confidence, and teamwork. Playoffs began the week of Monday, June 3rd, 2019. The Woodbury Heights Major Girls, Coach Pitch Girls, Major Boys, and Coach Pitch Boys will be participating in postseason play and are excited to represent Woodbury Heights. The Coach Pitch Boys tournament is held at the home field of Woodbury Heights Little League coach pitch field. The Coach Pitch Girls tournament is held in National Park, NJ – home of the Woodbury Heights Little League rivals National Park Little League.

Depending on the record of the Major Boys and Major Girls, the playoffs will be held at the field of the home team with the best record from the regular season. All the teams in each division will get a pass to participate in the playoffs. The teams will play one game all the way to the championship and then will play a three game series for the title. The playoffs are a “one-and-done” format, meaning that a loss eliminates teams from play.

In the Coach Pitch tournaments, teams will play three games each and the teams with the best records will face off in the championship. There will not be a one-game elimination.  

All of the Woodbury Heights Little League teams have an appealing record. The Coach Pitch Boys are undefeated at 11-0 and the Coach Pitch Girls have a record of 9 wins, 1 loss, and 2 ties. The Major Boys have a record of 7 wins, 3 losses, and 2 ties after winning the championship last year in Minors. Finally, the Major Girls have a final record of 11 wins and 1 loss. As you can see the records of the teams are very good and they all have a chance of winning a championship for the Woodbury Heights Little League. All of the players are very excited to be a possible MVP and or Division champs. To hold the trophy is a very big honor because you and your team showed that they are worthy enough to win.

As the Woodbury Heights season ends, the hopes of winning the different championships are still alive. This 2019 season is not going to be forgotten by parents, players, and coaches for all of the teams who have witnessed this tremendous season for the Woodbury Heights Little League. The Woodbury Heights baseball teams worked very hard this season to get where they are. Everyone who has brought this hard work and time will not forget the unforgettable season of 2019 in the tiny town of Woodbury Heights, thanks to the commissioner and volunteers of Woodbury Heights Little League for giving the young athletes of the community what they deserve.
