On August 11, in Woburn, The Woburn Lions hosted a double header between the Boston Renegades and the Long Island Bombers. In what threatened to be a rainy day ended up being nice out. That sunshine was bright for Boston and helped them to 7-2 and 5-2 victories over the Bombers. These two wins crowned the Renegades as the best team on the East coast for the third year in a row. Many thanks to the Woburn Lions for hosting this game. Please see our game results links for more information about this game (Link to the 2012 Results page)

Renegades Finish 9th in 2012 World Series

The 2012 World Series was in Ames Iowa  and the Renegades entered as the 6 seed, the best seed in team history.   In its six games, the Gades were 5-1 but brought the least amount of players in team history to a World Series.  Ames would see record high temperatures during the week as teams were forced to play in temperatures exceeding 103 degrees on fields that cried for water.  Combine these conditions with a day of high winds and the scores of many games would be very high.  Boston started off slow as they blew a big lead to New Jersey and the Lightning came back in the bottom of the 6th to walk off.  The eventual champion Taiwan Home Run would mercy rule the Renegades in 3 innings of play sending Boston to the double elimination round as a three seed.  Boston would play its highest scoring game in team history losing to Chicago 31-21 but would beat Cleveland to stay alive in the double elimination bracket till Thursday. Thursday morning, the Colorado Storm would knock the Renegades into the placement round with hopes of a 9 seed being the best the Renegades could do.  With two games remaining, Boston defeated the Lone Star Road runners and Minnesota Millers to finish strong and capture a nine seed.   For box scores and game recaps for the whole year, please visit this page.

Renegades Take 7th in World Series and finish year at 12-3

The 2011 World Series came to Indianapolis, IN and the Renegades entered with an impressive 7-1 record against their east coast opponents. Boston would beat Wichita and then pull off one of the most shocking upsets in the tournament defeating the 3 seeded Austin Blackhawks. This gave the Renegades their first ever 1 seed entering the double elimination brackets. Boston would go on to defeat Cleveland and then would drop a game to the RHI Extreme. They would then beat Cleveland for a second time before losing an extra inning affair to the Colorado Storm which would knock them out of the dance. Boston would beat Austin again to claim the 7 seed. This is the highest finish ever for a Renegade team. Since the NBBA moved to its current World Series format, the Renegades have finished 9th three times (2007, 2009, 2010). They finished 10th in 2006 and 8th in 2008. Justen Cantan was named to the all defensive all-star team as he placed 3rd in the World Series with 5.57 stops per game. Boston finished the year with an 12-3 record which is the most wins and best winning percentage in team history For box scores and game recaps for the whole year, please visit this page.
