World Series XII

Trenton Capitols vs. Hartford M.A.P.S

For the fourth time in Fingers History, including three seasons in a row, the World Series will be decided between the M.A.P.S. and the Capitols. The M.A.P.S have swept Trenton in each of their three World Series meetings.

There is a similiarity to this World Series matchup with a World Series matchup from the 1940s and 50s. Trenton plays the role of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the M.A.P.S are the New York Yankees.

From 1941 to 1953, the Yankees beat the Dodgers in the World Series five times. It wasn't until 1955 that the Dodgers finally overcame the Yankees. In the 12 seasons of Fingers League, the Capitols have lost four World Series (three to the M.A.P.S.). Will it be 1955 for the Caps?
