Report

Cork Druids are notable for being the first team from outside Dublin or Belfast to play in the Irish Baseball League. They were formed in 2004 in Donoughmore, Blarney, Co. Cork and as well as playing Little League (Youth Baseball) they joined the Baseball Ireland B League (Adult) in 2008 where they finished fifth and last behind the B Teams of the Dublin City Hurricanes, Greystones Mariners, Dublin Spartans and Dublin Black Sox. They won one of their 10 matches and lost 7 with the other two games forfeited. After the season they merged with an emerging Limerick team to form the Munster Warriors, which played out of Limerick featuring players from both Cork and Limerick. The Clubs coaches were Jason Murphy, Paul Healy and Tony Condon.
