The Mishawaka Arrowheads prevailed 5-3 over the Monroe Park Millracers on Sunday to win the 2018 Sappy Moffitt pennant. This was the first season in the league for Arrowheads and they are the first team to win the championship in their inaugural season. It was the second year in a row that the Millracers have finished as runners up.
SOUTH BEND (AP) – – The people came. Baseball was played. Pain was eased. More than a century has passed since the digging of the Mill Race brought manufacturing jobs to South Bend, and the town thrived with scores of workers commuting by South Shore Line to pursue their dreams in northern Indiana. But the economy turned and Studebaker drove off, taking with it workers and their families looking for new opportunities. This past Saturday, the people returned. It wasn’t the promise of employment or the dream of a white picket fence. These things are fleeting. Rather, it was the one constant in American life that brought them back to the Bend. Yes, it was baseball.
Come out to Southeast Neighborhood Park for a pick-up game between the divisions at 2pm on Sunday, July 1. Brats & burgers provided. There’s a splash pad and playground for the kids. Bring your own beverages. Booze, brats, baseball – what more could you want?
Southeast Park is located just south of Sample St, behind Ivy Tech and the YWCA.

Today you’ll still be able to turn the double play.
