The Ironsides took home Paul Revere's Lantern this year winning the Patriot Series in thrilling fashion. The tournament's championship game pitted the tournament's co-founders against one another for the third time in tournament history. This game marks the third time that Paul Horton's Ironsides and Max Smith's Minutemen have faced off in the tournament's championship game and its surely not to be the last.
Paul Horton's Ironsides ultimately won the day bringing the team its second Patriot Series Title. The 2018 tournament stretched into the late hours of Saturday night and finally ended in storybook fashion with a walk off walk off home run by the Commissioner himself, Paul Horton.
The Patriot Series wants to thank everyone who came out to the 2018 edition of the tournament and we hope to see you all again next year. We also want to extend a special thanks to Grant McGalliard and the Hood County News for their full page write up on the tournament.
