Friedheim winsdartball crown

This time, it's Friedheim ... wire to wire.

Friedheim, the New York Yankees of the Cape-Perry Lutheran Laymen's League of Dartball with more than half of the league's regular-season titles since 1988-89, followed up this year's regular-season crown with the tournament championship.

Friedheim won last year's regular season but didn't win the tournament title.

Dartball is scored like baseball, with players throwing darts at a large baseball-field like dartboard to achieve the results of their at-bats.

Hanover finished second, Crosstown was third and Perryville placed fourth.

Friedheim's Mike Rhode had the most RBIs in the tournament with 18.

Willie Kasten of Uniontown topped the tournament's batting charts with a .536 average, and teammate Karl Kasten had the top slugging percentage at 1.325.
