Report

The Dublin Black Sox B saw off the challenge of the Greystones Mariners B to win the Baseball Ireland B League Trophy in 2011. In the third game of the the three-game Final Series, they trailed all the way until tying it up in the bottom of the sixth innings to make it 9-9. At the Bottom of the seventh innings, the Black Sox batting order was back to the top, and Jose Gomez was struck on the ankle with a pitch, putting him on first base. Raul Vazquez hit a line drive past the short stop to put Gomez on second base, then after fouling a picth left and then right, Brian Connolly smashed a line drive between left and centre fielders to allow Gomez sprint towards third, and then with the ball still in the outfield third base coach Kevin Dillon sent Gomez home where his slide beat the thrower for the winning run.

The Black Sox B had defeated the Dublin City Hurricanes B in the Playoffs while the Greystones Mariners B had to defeat both the Dublin Spartans B ans Hurricanes B to reach the Final. The Regular Season was a close battle between all four teams, with the Hurricanes B winning the League Pennant on 11-4, and Black Sox B (11-4), SpartansB (10-5) and Mariners B (9-6) following just behind. The other two teams in the B League, Cavan Comets (3-12) and West Clare Dolphins (1-14) finished well off the pace. [Reference: 2-3]
