Abolitionists Beat Leathers in World Series
The Cincinnati Abolitionists were good enough to get past the Newark Leathers at Josh Guy Memorial Park today and secure the 13th championship in franchise history.

"When you wear Abolitionists on your shirt, you're good at something," Cincinnati skipper John Callahan told the press.

Abolitionists third baseman John Smith was named MVP of the series after he went .441 with no home runs and 3 runs batted in.

"It feels totally incredible," Smith said. "I could live to 1,000 years old and I'd remember this moment."

The new champions capped off a great season with a 6-5 victory over the Leathers to win the World Series 4-3.

A Yearly Tradition

The Immigrants have fired their GM. New York has never won anything, but they sure have gone through a lot of GMs.

David Edens Passes

David was the original owner of the second New Orleans Rebels franchise. He saw the Rebels go from a struggling member of the Stars and Stripes League to a founding member of the Great American Baseball League to 1892 World Series champs. He will be replaced by his son David Edens, Jr. David has been said to be charitable in financial matters and lenient in personality traits.

Managers of the Year

This is Callahan's eighth time winning the award.

Cincinnati's John Callahan Named Top SSL Manager: John Callahan celebrated a successful season with the Cincinnati Abolitionists by hosting team officials and select media at a Cincinnati area first-class eatery. But, when he first came to town, the 1903 Stars and Stripes League Manager of the Year would've been lucky to be invited out for beers with the ground-crew.

"Very few people believed in our ballclub, when I got here. It just goes to show you that a bunch of talented ballplayers playing together can make any old manager a genius," a modest Callahan joked, not fully recognizing his own stature in the baseball community.

Great American Baseball League Names Top Skipper: Just about any objective fan of the Newark Leathers would have to admit that Matt Hensley is worthy of the Great American Baseball League Manager of the Year Award. But it wasn't that way at first.

"In the beginning it was rocky," noted Hensley, "The fans really gave it to me. Somewhere along the line we just began putting things together, picking up a win here and there, and morphing into a team--not just a bunch of guys doing their own thing."

Hensley paced the Leathers to a first place finish in the Great American Baseball League. Newark wound up the season with a 93-61 record.

As for next year, Hensley said, "We're always tweaking things, trying to improve the club. You don't rest after winning awards. I'm here to make the Leathers a perennial powerhouse."

However, baseball journalists duly noted his managerial skill as he skippered the Abolitionists to a 105-49 record this year and a first place finish in the Stars and Stripes League.

Jason Frey of the Cincinnati Abolitionists finished second in voting, while Mark Jackson of the Baltimore Shippers finished third.

Roquette Named GABL's #1 Hurler: The Detroit Electric have a rising superstar or maybe even a budding Hall-of-Famer in the making.

Roquette compiled a 20-4 record in 23 starts, tallied 128 strikeouts in 210.1 innings and recorded a 1.37 ERA. Other clubs managed only a .210 batting average against him.

MVP Award Winners

Lipscomb Tops All, Wins SSL Most Valuable Player Award: Ben Lipscomb is the winner of the 1903 Stars and Stripes League Most Valuable Player Award.

The New York Immigrants ace was a step above the competition this year, winning him the award despite it typically not going to a pitcher.

"I'm honored for sure. To be considered the best in the AABC is remarkable," he said.

On the season, Lipscomb had a 2.13 ERA, with 200 strikeouts and 43 walks over 414.1 innings. He made 44 starts and fashioned a 23-19 record, with opponents hitting only .226 against him.

Josh Sher of the Cincinnati Abolitionists finished second in voting, while Todd Merideth of the Brooklyn Red Legged Devils finished third.

Best Season In GABL Belongs To McCray: Mark McCray has been around American Association of Baseball Clubs enough to know a good hot streak when he sees one -- and he got to see one firsthand all year. For his standout run through the 1903 season, he's taking home the Most Valuable Player Award in the Great American Baseball League.

The Newark shortstop put up a batting average of .315 with 41 doubles, 19 triples, 7 home runs and 73 RBIs.

Brad Keel of the Newark Leathers finished second in voting, while Bryan Flack of the Washington Presidents finished third.
