New Mexico MSBL 30+ Division
Duke City Pirates 7, Colt 45’s 3
‘Pirates Claim Title in First Year
Submitted by Derek Marrujo,
What a year for the Pirates! This first
year 30 and over team came together to go on a six game winning streak to tie
the division leader and then win the New Mexico MSBL league championship.
Behind pitchers Bryan Deshayes and Rich Morrison, our lead-off hitter and
season MVP, the Duke City Pirates finished off the division leading Colt 45's.
Final score 7 to 3.
In the championship game we
benefited from clutch hitting from the bottom of the lineup to get runners on
base. Then Rich Morrison hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to seal
the win. We posted solid defense all year from Richard Ullibari and Gabe Maes,
which got us to the Championship. Congratulations Pirates!
