Another round of hearty congrats go out to our Bulls for winning their first Triple-A National Championship last night in Oklahoma City.
They won in the bottom of the 11th inning on a wild pitch by their opponent, Pacific Coast League champion Memphis Redbirds.
As they had all playoffs, the Bulls made good use of clutch pitching from the bullpen and timely hits to come out with an extra-innings win.
It's the team's first Triple-A national title. But consider this litany of success since the team was bumped up to Triple-A 12 years ago: nine post-season appearances, eight division titles, seven appearances in the Governors' Cup Finals, three Governors' Cups and one National Championship.
Pretty stellar record. Go Bulls! What a way to end a great year.
An added bonus: The game was televised nationally on ESPN2, great exposure for our home team.
Can't wait for next season.
