‘Four Titles in Four Years for Pirates’

Submitted by Billy Rockwell, Bradenton Pirates manager

In this year’s Central Florida MABL we were very fortunate to have a strong core of players that showed up almost every weekend to play. I would say that our pitching and definitely our defense helped us out the most. Mike Mullen, Marquis Hutchinson and James Curtis were our three main core pitchers. We also had some pitching help from a couple position players; Chris Kastor and Tim Schalch. Everyone on the team played an important role. I am very proud of all my guys.

The Bradenton Pirates have mostly been together for four years and this is our fourth Championship. We are very excited to get the next season started and try to make it five titles. With us having only one loss this past season it is going to be hard to beat. My comeback player of the year would have to be Anibal Martinez, who really came through at the end of the season. Tony Lujan was also a huge help everywhere including with helping me with running the team.
