Summary:

Norridge pitcher Vince Santucci struck out only one batter but held Bradley-Bourbonnais American to two hits in leading his team to its first state title. Norridge scored twice in the second, and added Mike Ryan's homer to right-center field in the third. Had B-B American beaten Norridge twice, it would have competed in the Central Region Tournament that it also hosted. In that Region Tournament, Norridge came back through the loser's bracket and twice upended Wabash, Indiana to claim the Region title. Wabash had not trailed in any of its 14 tournament games prior to its first loss to Norridge.

NOTE: The Section 3 title game was rained out. International Tournament rules at the time stated that the managers of the two teams must both agree that a field is playable in order for play to begin. Harvey wanted to play but JRW determined the field was unplayable; therefore, no game could be played.

This rainout occurred on a Thursday, and the State Tournament was scheduled to begin on the subsequent Saturday. Tournament officials did not have enough time to play the 'if' game in the event that Harvey National won the first game, and since doubleheaders were prohibited, the section title was awarded to Jackie Robinson West based on their status as the winner's bracket champion.
