THE DIRTY BIRDS went undefeated in their first season of Comox Valley Mixed Slo-Pitch.








Only two games were played in Comox Valley Mixed Slo-Pitch League Tier 1 last week as the Sunlife Slammers and the Heaters split a doubleheader. The Slammers won the first one 16-6 while the Heaters came back to win the second 14-6. Banner Landscaping Brewers won the Tier 1 league title with an 11-3 record.

Meanwhile, Courtenay Kia demolished the Wrecks 20-5 and crushed Berard’s Plumbing 16-3 to capture the Tier 2 division. The Romance Shop Master Batters destroyed the Wankees 19-7 to take second spot by one point over the Peanut Gallery who dropped their last game 13-2 to Berard’s.

The Wrecks took down Berard’s 12-7 while the Wankees won just their second game of the season 8-7 over Zoom Zooms.

Tier 3 was all decided three weeks ago with Mission Possible Shockers winning the division.

Congratulations to the Dirty Birds who became only the third team in 25 years to have an undefeated (14-0) season. In a doubleheader the Birds edged Blue Thunder 12-11 and won 17-11 over the Fishermans Lodge C.R. Pawn Boomers.

The Dirty Birds had to beat the Islanders for their perfect season and won 11-4. The Pacers won for just the third time nipping Billy D’s Dodgers 12-11 but fell 16-12 to Merit Home Furniture Cruisers in their final game. The Dodgers outscored the Islanders 22-17 and were stopped by Blue Thunder 13-8.

Only two games in Tier 5 where the Calm Batters took first place by stopping EZ Ryders 8-5 and in the battle for first shutout A + Fire Ballers 10-0. The Calm Batters took first place by having a better head-to-head record over the Fire Ballers.
