Ottawa meets DC in WS

Teams clash in rematch of season 12 World Series

The Washington DC Blue Coats will hope their second trip to the World Series will end better than their first one did. But they'll have to defeat a familiar enemy to reach their goal as the Ottawa O-jays will be their World Series opponent for the second time in three seasons.

The last time these teams met in the World Series, the O-jays took home the championship trophy, winning the series four games to two. The teams will again be lead by aces Andres DeLeon and Carter Leonard but the biggest subplot of this rematch may revolve around the two superstars who are playing for the other side this time around.

Future Hall of Famer Luis Martinez left DC after their season 12 World Series disappointment and signed a three-year deal to join then defending champion Ottawa. Jack Hunt also left his team after that World Series, fleeing Ottawa for big money in New York. But Hunt was traded to Washington midway through this season and will try to help the team he defeated two years ago, take down the team he helped to victory.
