For the second straight season the Milwaukee Manic Maulers and Louisville Legends will square off in a seven game series for the chance to play in the World Series. The top seeded Manic Maulers swept the fourth seeded Las Vegas Gamblers in three games to win their Division Championship Series while the third seeded Legends swept the second seeded Monterrey Sultans to reach the ALCS.
Last season, the seven game series between Milwaukee and Louisville went the distance with Milwaukee eventually winning Game 7 and the series to advance to the World Series. The Manic Maulers lost in the World Series to Houston, four games to two.
Milwaukee has reached the ALCS for the past three seasons while the ALCS appearance is the second for Louisville.
