After 15 weeks of intense play, starting back in October last year, the Reading Blue Jays came out on top of the pack.
For the first time, the WMSL Indoor season crossed the New Year boundary. Usually restricted to 10 weeks in January, the 2022 version started in later 2021 to accommodate the increased number of entries.
It was an mixed year for the last Indoor League winners, BA Jets. Having triumphed in 2020 before the pandemic, their 2022 campaign didn’t live up to those heights.
2019 Winners, the Titans, also struggled mid-season, they started well with early win and finished strong with 3 out 4 wins in their last games, but a bad run at the end of the year and start of the new one put pay to their chances of winning another title.
The Scorchers putting in consistent seasons, another 3rd place finish this year as they enjoyed a very good end to the season and only missed out on the runners-up spot with a final game defeat against the Typhoons.
The Typhoons are one of the most consistent indoor teams. Having won consecutive titles in the past, they are always there or thereabouts come the end and this year was no different. They pushed the Blue Jays all the way and but for a late defeat in the the run-in might have pushed the title to the last night.
The Blue Jays/Sox have been so close a number of occasions and 2022 was the year they got over the line. Deserved winners, they were the most consistent teams when it mattered and despite a defeat in the last game, they won the title with a strong start to the new year.
The 2022 season is in the books and we pack away the indoor balls and bases for a few months before we do it all again in October for the start of the 2023 season.
