Due to some last minute shenanigans both the Buccs and the Parrots are on the hunt for new players, especially girls. Buccs are based in Wandsworth and are in Minors 2 whereas Parrots are Minors 3 and based in Regents Park. Just in case anyone is not familiar with the term minors/majors it means that we … Continue reading Wanted! New players for Buccs and Parrots
The blog is a little late but following the AGM back in February Pimlico Softball Club is growing with the Buccaneers added the the Club. Managed by Mendy and Dave the Buccs will be playing in Minors 2 at John Archer way on Wednesday night while the Pirates will be playing there for home games … Continue reading PSC is growing!
After a narrow escape last night we can breathe a small sigh of relief as we are out of the relegation zone for the moment. With Tornados beating the Raiders last night they didn't do us any favours as it is still possible for them to avoid relegation, especially if they beat us. As Tom … Continue reading MUST. WIN. GAMES!!
Following a ruthless (not Ruth less) victory against the Knights last Thursday the Pirates have risen to the top of the Minors 1 table. It's been a fair few years since we enjoyed this position so the away game against Raiders Red at Bellevue road will be a key one.
Just two days to go and the Pirate's season kicks off against a newly promoted Moanado team. For anyone that can't remember the last time we played them it was the reverse fixture to perhaps one of the most bad tempered game we've played in. In case you can't remember here's a refresher: https://pimlicopirates.com/pirates-match-reports/2012-match-reports/july-3-pirates-vs-tornadoes/ A … Continue reading Pirates: May preview
Whilst the Pirates have done well to secure so many new players spare a thought for the Parrots. Knee injuries, immigration and inter-team transfers have resulted in a shortage of players- particularly the girls. Have no fear- Neil is confident as the season approaches with the makings of a new Parrot squad. Squawk!!
After a solid win against the Kamis last night the Pirates were officially promoted to Div 4 softball! It's been a long time in coming after spending 3 seasons in Minors 2 league especially after coming third for the past two seasons. It looked as if our campaign for promotion was close to collapse after … Continue reading Pirates officially promoted!!
It was always going to be a tough game playing the Canary Cubs at their (crap) home pitch, especially when we were short of players (Gids and Shaz- finger injury, Alice and Dave away, Sohan taking a tactical sub). Chris had to dig deep into Pirate alumni to find the 5th girl and luckily managed … Continue reading Champagne on hold. Maybe.
After a thrilling came against the Tigers last night the Pirates came back from a 12-1 mauling after the 1st innings to win the game 26-25 in the 7th innings. It looked as if the Tigers were going to seriously dent our promotion chances as they batted their way through and forcing mistakes in the field. … Continue reading Pirates on verge of promotion!
The Pirates are officially on a roll. With 3 wins in a row (vs Raiders, Hampstead Heat and Voodicks) the Pirates are edging closer to promotion, especially after our friends the Base Invaders beat the Cubs. With 3 games left to play the Base Invaders are almost guaranteed promotion unless they happen to lose all their … Continue reading Pirates heading toward promotion!
