LITTLE FALLS, NJ - After being named the regular season champs, the Jackals were eliminated from the playoffs in a game 4 loss at home Friday night. The Jackals entered the playoffs with the most wins, and having their star shortstop, Art Charles, be named league MVP.

After a great 11-2 win at Ottawa, the Jackals would go on to lose game two 4-3, despite a late inning rally by the Jackals who were trailing 4-0.
