Baseball Ireland A-League Regular Season Results 2013 [Reference: 2]


In one of the most competitive ever seasons of the Irish Baseball League, the Dublin Spartans won the League Pennant with an 11-4 Record (48 Points), just 2 games ahead of both the Dublin Black Sox and Belfast North Stars (9-6), with Dublin City Hurricanes also making the playoffs a further game behind (8-7). The other two teams in the A League, the Greystones Mariners (5-10) and Munster Warriors also competed well with the two traditional powers Dublin City Hurricanes and Dublin Spartans. Dublin Black Sox shocked the Spartans in the First Playoff Match, winning 2-1 to go straight into the A League Final, sending the Spartans into a Semi-Final with the winners of the Second Playoff Match, Dublin City Hurricanes, where the Spatans prevailed 5-4. In the A League Final, however, the Dublin Black Sox could not repeat their heroics of the Playoff victory and the Spartans won two narrow games to take the best-of-three series.

About Baseball and Baseball Ireland

Baseball is a bat-and ball game where players aim to hit a ball thrown at them by a pitcher and run around four bases back home without being caught or run out. A run is scored when a player gets back to home base. It is similar to the GAA game of Rounders, but the bases are 90 feet apart rather than 60 and pitching can be overarm. There are 9 Innings for each team in a standard Baseball game (seven in the case of thw Baseball Ireland B-League) and when three players on a team are out that is the end of the innings for the team. A teams innings is not over until three outs are made. It was first played in America, but is thought to have an ancestor in the Irish and British game of Rounders (and also similar games in Germany and Scandinavia such as Branboll). In Ireland it is Coed (Mixed).
