TO CONGRATULATE THE COLUMBIA METS FOR WINNING THE 1991 SOUTH ATLANTIC LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP AND TO THANK THEM FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTION OF WHOLESOME FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT TO THE RESIDENTS OF THIS STATE.
Whereas, the Columbia Mets capped the 1991 season by winning the South Atlantic League Championship; and
Whereas, the Mets finished the regular season winning the last twelve of their final fourteen games; and
Whereas, they led the South Atlantic League with a season batting average of .265 and with a 2.92 earned run average were only second to Charleston; and
Whereas, they won the first half South Atlantic League Southern Division title with a 47-24 record; and
Whereas, after defeating the Macon Braves for the second half division title in two games in a best of three series, they faced the Charleston Wheelers, an affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds; and
Whereas, the Mets swept the League championship by shutting out the Wheelers with a 3-0 in the best of five series; and
Whereas, this is the second time the Mets have taken the League title, with their first championship in 1986 when they defeated the Asheville Tourists, a Houston affiliate; and
Whereas, since 1983, their inaugural season, the Columbia Mets have provided South Carolina residents, and especially the Midlands, with high caliber, exciting baseball; wholesome and enjoyable entertainment for families and fans of all ages; and
Whereas, it is fitting for the General Assembly to congratulate the Columbia Mets for their outstanding season. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly congratulate the Columbia Mets for their sweeping victory over the Charleston Wheelers to win the 1991 South Atlantic League Championship and thank the team, its management, and owners for providing the residents of South Carolina with wholesome and enjoyable family entertainment.
