The Eastman Dodgers gave the Sparta Saints quite a hard time in the first round of the playoffs as Sparta had to play all 5 games in order to wrap the playoffs and go to the championship series. There they met 3rd place Fitzgerald who made the Saints play all 7 games before pulling off the biggest upset in league history (especially since the league was only a year old)... winning in the 7th game and taking the series away from Sparta who had played such great baseball all season. Sparta may have done well on the field but at the gate they drew only 27,000... 5th in the 6 team league. Two teams broke the 40k mark.
