Top Threads Tournament: ABL First Round

The Liga de Béisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente bracket came to an end last week and Criollos de Caguas romped their way to winning the whole thing. They’ll get to take part in a to be held later championship bracket.

The next league to enter the fray comes from the land down under. The Australian Baseball League is an eight-team short season winter league. The action will kick off with an opening-round containing all eight teams. There aren’t true home/away uniforms in the ABL, so I just went with the two primary uniforms employed by the teams and kept the home/away labels for simplicity’s sake. The polls close Monday at 10:00 am, the correct central time, so get your vote in before then.
