More than three months of diamond competition are in the books. Now it's time for the cream to rise to the top.

Championships are on the line this week and next in New Milford Parks & Recreation men's and women's slow pitch softball leagues.

Playoffs kicked off Aug. 4 at the Young's Field diamonds in five men's divisions and the women's nine-team league. Each division plays a double-elimination, last men or women standing format.
