(Monday 21 September, Grovehill, Hemel Hempstead)
The Hunlock Series Commissioner made a surprise announcement today, completely revamping the format of the third week series finale.
The H-Series has seen dramatic revisions since its inception in 2006. Originally, this was as best-of-three series between the Falcons and Falcons 2 (or Hawks as they were later rechristened). In 2008 the Hunlock Commission introduced the Live Draft and the Series became a much more evenly-matched affair.
Now, in 2009, the third week will see two back-to-back nine-inning championship games. The first will determine which squad – the second- or third-placed – will earn a trip to the title match that afternoon. Meanwhile, the first-place finalists have earned the right to rest on their laurels and spare their pitchers' arms. Whichever squad wins the morning semi final will have to play two full baseball games in a row, giving a distinct advantage to whichever squad emerges from weeks one and two in first place.
