History

Giants Baseball Team replaced Blue Devils in the Irish Baseball League after the 2004 season. They played the one season as Giants before the teams which played in the Second Half Trophy Section (Lower League) were made B teams of the teams which played in the Second Half Championship Section. Having gone 3-4 (Wins-Losses) in the First Half and thus being the leading team entering the Second Half Trophy Section they could well have fancied their chances of reaching the Trophy Final or even winning the Trophy but were only to win two of their eight games. They were then made a B team of one of the A League teams in 2006 when the Championship and Trophy were renamed the Baseball Ireland A League and B League (For the 2006 season Division 1 (A) and Division 2 (B)).
