The team went down to Plum City Monday afternoon and were able to beat the Hudson Rats by a score of 2-1 in 8 innings (the tournament games were played as 7 inning games). New-comer Josh Marlow was the one who ended the game as he hit a walk-off blast to win the game. Eric Munson also had an outstanding showing from the mound, throwing all 8 innings for the Pirates. According to memory, this is the first time the team has taken first place in this annual tournament.

On May 13th the SCVBL was able to put together a team of all-stars to play in a game against the St. Paul Saints in what they referred to as a “brainstorming” (preseason) game. The Pirates had 4 players participate in this match-up including, Billy Brookshaw, Mike Brookshaw, Eric Munson, and Mike Lytle.
Saturday May 20th we were forced to cancel our home game with Bay City due to weather and field conditions. This game will be made up on July 8th at 1PM at Firehall Field.
Our most recent action was our game against Plum City this past Sunday. The Pirates got off to a rather slow start, but were able to string a few hits together in the 5th and 6th innings to start their run scoring. We won by a score of 10-0 in 8 innings, led by new-coming catcher Brandon Voelker who had 3 hits on the day.
