Recovering from a loss in their first game of the tournament the East Coast Sand Hogs 17u-McGloin ran the table on Playoff Monday to win the 18u NEB Invitational.
A playoff participant in 2016 this time they were able to win it all. Starting with a strong offensive performance in the Semi-Finals, they won 9-7 over the North East Baseball Mudhens. They took that offensive explosion into the Finals were they scored 4 runs in the top of the 1st inning gliding to a 7-1 victory in the Championship over the Connecticut Blue Jays-Elite.
