Berkshire Red Sox Optimist Team

1993 Season Record: 43-18-2


The Sox picked up their second Regular Season Championship in 1993, but had to again settle for second place in the play-offs with a heart-breaking 3-games-to-2 Championship Series defeat to the RISCO Scrappers.

The Red Sox did bring home their first tournament championship when they traveled to Berwick to take home the Tri-County Invitational title in exciting fashion.

The Sox came from behind to win every game they played in the tournament with the exception of their 7-4 semi-final victory over Unionville.

Red Sox hurler, Rick Dunnum put on a performance that wouldn’t soon be forgotten as he tossed back-to-back complete game victories for the Sox in the semi-final win over Unionville and in the Sox final come from behind victory of the tournament, a 5-4 win over tournament favorite State College.

That feat earned Dunnum co-MVP honors for the tournament along with teammate Erron Archie.
