Postseason Recap: The ACBL's 50th anniversary season ended in thrilling fashion, as the Allentown Railers won their second straight title with a walk-off 2-1 win against South Jersey in the decisive third game of the championship series. In that final game, the Railers' Gabe Mosser (Shippensburg (Pa.)) struck out 15 but South Jersey nonetheless carried a 1-0 lead into the eighth. The Railers, the ACBL's best team in the regular season, fought back though, tying the game with a run in the bottom of the eighth and then winning it on Ed Posavec's (Binghamton) game-winning sacrifice fly in the ninth.

1. Drew Tumbelty, rhp, South Jersey (Jr., Rider)

Tumbelty is a converted infielder who only pitched six innings for Rider this spring but thrived as a closer for South Jersey. He pitches off a fastball that sits at 90-91 mph and touches 94-95. He has to improve his secondary pitches, using a borderline breaking pitch at present. He posted four saves during the regular season with 22 strikeouts in 18 innings. He’s still new at pitching, but has the arm to succeed at the pro level once he develops a good secondary pitch to compliment his fastball.
