A season-long rivalry between the two best teams in American Legion District 11 Baseball came to a conclusion Thursday night at Shepherd Stadium in Colonial Heights as Mechanicsville Post 175 used relentless offense to defeat South Richmond Post 137 16-6 in eight innings to win their fourth District tournament title in five seasons.
It's hard to believe that, back in 2012, Post 175 entered the District 11 Tournament having never won the title before.
