On the finest of Autumn afternoon's, upon sun-bathed fields of resilient green, the Gentlemen of Summer convened on Long Island's Old Bethpage Restoration Village grounds for the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Vintage Base Ball Festival, where this season's club champion would be decided.

As top seeds, the Brooklyn Eckfords and Elkton Eclipse earned spectator rights for the festival's first round action between the Brooklyn Atlantics versus the New York Mutuals along with Diamond State's match against the Providence Grays.

A commanding Atlantics victory over the Mutuals earned them a second round match against the number two seed Elkton Eclipse.  Following a convincingly likewise performance over Providence, Diamond State moved on to challenge the the top seed Brooklyn Eckford club.

Holding true to their regular season standing, both Elkton and the Eckfords gained victory over their respective opponents, setting up a much anticipated championship contest between the season's top clubs.
