SWBL 1st Grade Grand Final V Marrickville @ Petersham Oval – Pirates 7 def Marricks 4

The Pirates created history yesterday by winning the SWBL 1st grade in only our second year in the competition; The Pirates dominated the game from the first innings where we scored 2 runs. The opposition had no answer to the pitching of Todd Grattan who pitched the entire 9 innings & only let in runs in the last 2 digs when the game was all but over; Todd was named the Match MVP. The fielders backed Todd up with some of the finest fielding seen all year & none better than short stop Jason Pospishil.  The Pirates hit all day but highlighted by home runs to Tim Auty & Alex Johnson, multiple hits to James Yates (3) who also was named the SWBL 1st Grade 2009 MVP. All the team & supporters celebrated long into the night on this outstanding achievement.
