Brothers have shot at baseball six pack

MARIST Brothers Old Boys Baseball Club will be looking to dominate the Far North Coast Baseball grand finals this weekend with all six of the club's teams to play in the premiership deciders.

Brothers will compete for major premiership in the U14, U16 and U20 junior competitions as well as in Division 2, Division 1 and Major League.

Club stalwart David Youngberry believes it is the first time in Brothers' 65-year history that all of the club's teams have made the grand finals.

The Brothers club has dominated the competition this season, the only team that missed out on the minor premiership was the Division 2 outfit.

They however sealed their place in the grand final with a hard-fought 14-8 win over Workers in their semi-final last weekend.

Brothers will be chasing their first Major League title since 2003 and their 28th since joining the Lismore Baseball competition in 1948.

The Division 1 team will be looking to successfully defend the title they won last year when they face Norths.

In Division 2, Brothers will be chasing their first success when they take on Easts Redbirds.

In the junior grades the U14s and U20s will both be looking to go back-to-back while the U16s will be looking for their first premiership for a few years.

Marist Brothers' success has not gone unnoticed with club officials tipping former players from far and wide to attend this weekend's games.
