Leading up to the playoffs, Memphis had to sink their South Eastern rival the Charlotte Schooners, grapple with the Tampa Sun Gators, and even then still, contend with a small, yet threatening burn down in Atlanta. The Notes wound up 2015 with the Southern Conference’s best record at 92-70 and the best South Eastern Division record.
The Memphis Blue Notes, E S B Champions for 2015, made it look kind of easy once they were in the playoffs. Before taking a 10 and 3 playoff record into the championship series with Seattle, the Blue songs burned Atlanta, 3-1, the minstrels left Indianapolis without a trace of sympathy, 4-1, and they held the Undertow completely under 4-1 for the E S B Southern Conference Championship title.
Memphis needed all seven games to secure the 2015 E S B Championship against the Seattle squad, including a 13 inning, walk-off affair at home in game 5. The Notes were actually down 4 – 2 in the top of ninth inning before a sealed victory was theirs.
The Memphis Blue Notes hold the #35 overall draft pick in the 2016 E S B Reserve Draft.
