PS Team Awards Announced
With the 2015 season now over, the Portage South Black Squirrels announce the annual team awards.  The PS MVP was presented to Ron Spears.  Spears had 29 hits, 15 runs scored, 6 doubles and drove in 25 runs.  He also led the team in hitting with a .354 average to secure the Stan Musial Batting Title.  The PS Cy Young was a tough selection this season, but Mike Darrah took home the hardware.  Darrah was 3-1 with a 0.74 ERA.  He had 55 strikeouts and only 4 walks in 38 innings on the mound. The fourth and final award given out is known as "The Herb".  The 2015 Herb went to Brady Haba. 

Tough Finish in the League Tournament for PS
Portage South entered the league tournament as the #3 seed and would host the Ohio Eagles.  PS was able to hold the Eagles for a 3-1 win and advance to the second round.  In the second round, the Black Squirrels would face the #2 seed, South Akron Kraken.  The Kraken won the game 3-1 and forced Portage South in the consolation bracket.  PS would face the strong offensive of the Akron Aces.  The Black Squirrels bats were up to the test and had an answer for all the Aces big innings.  They got the win 14-13.  Next up for the Squirrels was the Ohio Gamecocks.  This game was an instant classic with the game going 14 innings at 2 different fields.  In a heroic effort, Mike Darrah threw all 14 innings for PS.  Unfortunately he took the 4-3 loss and Portage South would end its season a 16-10 record.

Portage South Came Back with a Strong 2015 Season
The Portage South Black Squirrels 2015 season had a solid start, winning 9 of their first 12 games with rain pushing most of the games to the final month of the season.  PS finished 5-5 in the final 10 games, but 9 of them were played in 8 days, to finish in 3rd place of the Elite Division.  There were some strong individual performances in 2015 by the Black Squirrels.  Eric Schaffer threw, a career best, 45 innings with a 5-3 record and 40 strikeouts.  Ron Spears led the offense hitting .382 with 26 hits, 6 doubles and 23 RBIs in 22 regular season games while only committing 2 errors on defense.  Rookie, Brady Haba, hit .328 with 19 hits and 19 stolen bases in his first season in a PS uniform.
