The St. Mary’s roster included Eric Johnson, B.J. Aina, Mike Ugorek, Shawn Callicutt, Andre Callicutt, Mike Rush, Aaron Bouie, Brian Allen, Kory Allen and Matt Tower.

In a best two out of three series, Albion St. Mary’s trimmed Lyndonville to capture the 1994 County League baseball playoff championship.

St. Mary’s won the decisive third game 7-3 as Aaron Bouie turned in an outstanding relief job on the mound. He came on with two on and no outs in the fourth inning and blanked Lyndonville the rest of the way retiring 12 of the 14 batters he faced six via strikeouts.

St. Mary’s had erased an early 3-0 deficit by scoring three times in the second inning.

St. Mary’s also won the first game of the series 7-6 but Lyndonville answered with a 4-2 win in game two sending the series to a decisive third contest.

The County League championship was the fourth in eight years for St. Mary’s. Previously, St. Mary’s had defeated Barker 7-2 in 1987, Medina 17-3 in 1990 and Medina Village Sports 13-5 in 1992.
