London Mets Champs of Britain

For the second straight year the London Mets have won the British baseball championships. It was also their third championship in four years and their fifth overall, more baseball championships than any other team in Great Britain. They swept the Herts Falcons, who have yet to win a championship.

Rich Minford was voted the MVP for the finals with his .500 batting average and 10 strikeouts. In the best two out of three format both games ended because of the 10 run mercy rule.

The London Mets had finished in first place with a 25-5 record. The Falcons were a surprise participant in the finals since they finished the regular season 7-20.
