Post Season History

For more detail, click the link for that particular season.
After winning 109 games during the regular season, and storming to the Eastern Division title by twelve games, Topeka beat the Unadilla Cyclone in five games to advance to the World Series.  In the Series, Topeka met up with the red hot Minneapolis Millers, and although Minneapolis proved to be a tough foe, Topeka again managed a five game series victory to celebrate their first title.  As a team, the Sizzlers hit an impressive .322 in the series, and World Series MVP Dave Winfield hit an incredible .611, with 1 HR, 5 RBIs, and 3 SBs.
The Sizzlers improved dramatically during the 1976 season, as they won a surprising 105 games, and tied for the Eastern Division title. In the playoffs, the Sizzlers topped defending champion Santa Fe in 4 games before dropping the World Series to the Jersey Rattlers 4 gsmes to 2.
In their seventh season in the USRL, the Topeka Sizzlers finally reached the playoffs.  After compiling a 89-73 record and claiming the Wild Card, Topeka met Death Valley in the Division Series.  Unfortunately for the Sizzlers, that playoff appearance ended in a disappointing 4-1 series loss to the Death Valley Drivers.
