Season two of the Pioneer Collegiate Baseball League will come to a conclusion this week when the playoffs will decide a champion. Albert Lea Lakers (29-5) captured the regular season pennant and top seed for the playoffs which features all five teams.

The record-setting Lakers will face fourth-seeded Bancroft Bandits (13-20) in a best-of three series beginning on Monday in Albert Lea. While the Lakers dominated the head-to-head series this summer winning six of nine Bancroft had the most success of any PCBL team. The teams split the last four games played each winning a pair.

A three-team round robin will determine the second finalist. With Peak of Ames (6-18) playing a limited schedule this format will still allow each team a fair shot at advancing. Defending league champion Storm Lake Whitecaps (18-18) and Carroll Merchants (17-18) also will face Ames.
