Pirates combine with Parrots to take Firstball title!

The Pirates descended on Chiswick playing fields to enter the annual GLSML Firstball tournament.

Despite being in Minors 1, a lack of Blue teams and an over subsciption meant that we got bumped down from White and where therefore the top seed in the Blue Division.

We started slow as usual losing to the Raiders, before dispatching Disco Inferno and Knight Sliders. This set up a do or die clash with the Tecumsehs and despite being behind after 3 innings, rallied with great defence and hitting to win and top the group with a 3-1 record.

Rather surprisingly the Voodoos finished 4th in the table on head to head results and were no match for us, easing to a one sided victory.

In the other semi, Tigers beat Tecumsehs to set up the Pirates v Tigers final.

Although Tigers tried their best, by this time we had hit full speed and won comfortably 10-3 over 7 innings.

A great day with plenty of home runs, sun burn and beer. In the pub after Whitney won tournament female MVP and Neil picked up the male tournament MVP.

Here’s a few photos from the day and victory.

Aaaarrrrgggghhhh
