Nighthawks stun the field

The Lake County Nighthawks made an improbable run from 9th place to World Series champions, dashing the Mohawk Valley Lions' dreams of a three-peat. After receiving a postseason bid only because of overusage issues by the 8th place finishing Miami Manatees, the Nighthawks knocked off the No. 1 (Goldenrod Gators), No. 5 (Lions), and No. 3 (Spokane Hooded Crows) seeds to earn their first ever MMDA crown. Congrats to Dave Jones and his Cinderella club.
