‘Upstart Orioles Defeat Favored Pirates to Take Title’

Submitted by Michael Soares, ECABL President

The Orioles won the East Carolina Amateur Baseball League 2016 Championship. The upstart Orioles, who only formed a team in mid-June and were led by new manager Lewis Price, won the playoffs Sunday afternoon defeating the Pirates 14 to 2. The Pirates were an impressive 15-3 in regular season play. Manager Price had his team sharp, cohesive and ready to play and PLAY they did, demonstrating sparkling defense and timely hitting. Congratulations to the Orioles!!!!
