Truffle Butter, Newts To Meet in 2023 World Series
The 2023 ORWBL World Series matchup is set after an exciting weekend of League Championship Series action. Starting off in the American League, it was the South Bend Truffle Butter who won one of the most competitive ORWBL playoff series' that we have ever seen over the Maple City Magic.
The Magic had high hopes of claiming their American League crown back after winning it in 6 consecutive seasons but ultimately fell just short, dropping a heartbreaker in Game 5 at Payton's Yard. While Maple City gave South Bend a run for their money, the Truffle Butter are now four wins away from becoming just the 3rd franchise to repeat as ORWBL Champions.
Only in their 3rd season in the league, South Bend is looking to win back to back World Series titles as they are quickly establishing themselves as one of the all time great franchises. With four more wins they will join exclusive company as they will now look to do it against the New Carlisle Newts.
The Newts are making their record 9th World Series appearance as they are four wins away from tying the Maple City Magic for most ORWBL Championships with 4. They won their last World Series title in 2016 and have since made appearances in 2017 and most recently in 2019.
After falling on some hard times over the past years, Koby Keck had an incredibly successful offseason as he signed former Wiffle Dees stars Tyler Shupert, Kody Webb, and JP Kehoe. Just like that, the New Carlisle Newts have returned as World Series threats as they are now four wins away from history.
The Newts won their record 9th National League Pennant in the NLCS as they took down the Kounty Line Knights in what was an incredibly successful season for the rising young squad.
The 2023 World Series schedule was flexed as Games 1-4 will take place on Sunday, August 27h at Payton's Yard before the series shifts to Migley Field where it will conclude on Sunday, September 3rd at Migley Field.
