B&R Tile Takes Over Top Spot in BGSD Power Rankings
If you have seen B&R Tile of the Mayfield Village Competitive league play, then you would figure that is wouldn't take long for them to claim the top spot in the BGSD Team Power Rankings. B&R has posted an 11-1 record, which has included 8 run-rule wins, and a .628 team batting average in a competitive Mayfield Village league. Their lone loss came at the hands of a very good Nerone & Sons team in a 26-21 game.
At the end of the year in August, the teams holding the #1 spot for the Men, Women, and Coed will be recognized and given a plaque on the field at a Lake County Captains game!
