West Herr wins NABF Regional, will go to Battle Creek

West Herr will join defending national champion Battistoni Diesel in the National Amateur Baseball Federation Senior World Series starting next Wednesday in Battle Creek, Mich.

The New Era Buffalo Muny AAA team earned that by putting 33 runs on the board Saturday to win the NABF Buffalo Regional.

West Herr defeated the Fairview Cardinals of Strongsville, Ohio, 11-3, in a semifinal game at ECC North then rolling over St. John’s-Leftys of Pittsburgh, 22-9, in the championship game at Northtown Center.

St. John’s-Leftys reached the final with a 7-6 walkoff victory over Muny AAA regular season champion JAMCO at Northtown in the other semifinal.

Battistoni won the NABF championship last year, defeating another Buffalo Muny team, Orville’s in the championship game.

Buffalo teams have won four NABF World Series titles since 2005 when the Orchard Park Sox won. West Herr won in 2010 and Diesel won in 2015 and 2017.
