The team sent Eric Stone to the mound against the Philadelphia Senators in the first round of the playoffs. The Prospects lost the game by a score of 2-1. Both runs scored by the Senators were unearned in the game. Stone was consistently hitting 87-88mph with a tight curve ball.
The Baseball U AAA program went 2-0 in their bracket defeating the NJ Marlins by a score of 15-1 and the Syracuse Chiefs by a score of 6-4. In the Chiefs game the team scored 4 runs in the 5th off of Wake Forrest bound RHP, Matt Pirro.
In the first round of the playoffs they faced off against the eventual tournament winner the South Bergen Mets. The team was tied into the 6th in a back and forth game when they gave up 4 runs. The team was short handed on pitching and the SB bats caught up to the tired pitching.
