On The Run @ Mobil, McDonald’s and C&M Deli & Pub were the overall champions of their respective divisions in the Rolla Men’s Softball League from league championship games Tuesday at Ber Juan Park.
The first-half champion played the second-half champion on Tuesday to determine the overall titlist in the Middle Division, Middle B Division and the Lower Division, respectively.
Newkirk Auction Service won both halves of the Upper Division, so a championship game was not needed in that division.
There were no rainouts in the Rolla Men’s League this year, making this the earliest ending to the league in recent memory. A mini-doubleheader men’s league will begin in two weeks, followed by the men’s fall league.
