There was an expanded Baseball Ireland B League in 2014, featuring B teams of all five returning A League teams (Dublin teams the City Hurricanes, Spartans and Black Sox as well as the Greystones Mariners and Belfast North Stars), as well as the B team of new team the Dublin Tigers, representing a Venezuelan company in Ireland, and regional teams the West Clare Dolphins, Cavan Comets and Ashbourne Giants. Dublin City Hurricanes B won the League Pennant and Championship, defeating Belfast North Stars B 13-1 and 14-1 in the best-of-three games Final Series. Cavan Comets reached the Semi-Finals after knocking out Ashbourne Giants, both teams best season yet, knocking out Greystones Mariners B and Dublin Black Sox B respectively in the Playoffs First Round. Cormac Eklof pitched superbly for the Hurricanes in Game 1 of the Final and Jose Martinez in Game 2 in what was a one-sided Final Series.

About Baseball and Baseball Ireland

Baseball is a bat-and ball game where players aim to hit a ball thrown at them by a pitcher and run around four bases back home without being caught or run out. A run is scored when a player gets back to home base. It is similar to the GAA game of Rounders, but the bases are 90 feet apart rather than 60 and pitching can be overarm. There are 9 Innings for each team in a standard Baseball game (seven in the case of thw Baseball Ireland B-League) and when three players on a team are out that is the end of the innings for the team. A teams innings is not over until three outs are made. It was first played in America, but is thought to have an ancestor in the Irish and British game of Rounders (and also similar games in Germany and Scandinavia such as Branboll). In Ireland it is Coed (Mixed).
