Through 69 games of the first half, the Lancaster Barnstormers and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs are tied with identical 38-31 records.
On Friday, July 28, the two clubs will meet head-to-head at Regency Furniture Stadium in Charles County, Maryland to make up a game that was rained out there on May 25.
This game will decide which team wins the first half title in the Freedom Division. Along with the automatic playoff berth, the winner of this game will gain home field advantage in the first round with the option of playing the first two games, or the last three, of the divisional series at home.
The following night, second half play will resume with a doubleheader between the two clubs.
