2022 was one for the books.

Overall, the SIBL continued it's trend of league competitiveness, evident by the one game difference between the middle of the pack, and the upsets that keep our playoffs interesting year after year. We added a brand new team, and rebranded another: The Lambrick Whitesox entered their inaugural year, replacing the now folded Lambrick Braves, and the Layritz Athletics took on a new persona as the Monarchs, hoping to improve on their underachieving 2021 season.

The Layritz Reds stayed consistent this year with the help of a couple of new additions , albeit less runs scored than an ungodly 2021, placing second with a 13-4-1 record (ties in this league are possible due to time limits placed by house ball regulations).

The middle of the pack was a tight race, with the final 2 games of the season deciding the final standings for 6 teams heading into the postseason schedule.

All of our fans in attendance donned their sports jerseys to show support, and a m
