Jul 16 2021: Dearborn Manager Fired - by mduban4 on February 18th, 2015

Skipper Max McIntyre was given the boot over the all star break. After coaching the team up the ladder to Legends League, and not to mention his amazing name, some fans have already expressed sadness on hearing of his departure. However, this move should come as no surprise. It was highly rumored the Pirates were considering this at the end of last season after yet another playoff disappointment. In his three playoff stands, Max could only manage an abysmal 3-12 record including 2-4, 0-4, and 1-4 efforts. He was kept on this season as the main team goal was to keep the record afloat in testing Legends League (he hasn't had a losing season in his 6 years). But his regular season success couldn't save his job anymore with the Pirates now two games below .500 halfway through the season.

In his wake, 44 year old Shawn Moody will take over. The young manager has had 5 1/2 successful seasons in lower league play, but now he will be abruptly thrust into the best quality baseball in all of BrokenBat. The Pirates are excited and hopeful regarding Moody's experience, yet young energetic age, relative success in both regular and post-season play, lower salary, and more subdued tactics. Only just arriving to take up his new post, he has already acquired a new nickname. The players are hoping Moody's mood isn't very moody, and just stays "Happy" in general.

Everyone is certainly hoping there will be plenty of team success for Moody to be happy about.

Good luck to the Dearborn Pirates and their new manager Shawn Moody in the second half of 2021!

Oct 12 2020: A Legendary Day - by mduban4 on December 20th, 2014

Pop the champagne, the Pirates just clinched the II.2 League Western Division! This guarantees that they will be moving up to Legends League next season! The team is a little worried about their aging offense facing off against the best of the best without any great prospects that will be ready in the near future, but they are quite excited about testing some potentially great young arms against top-league hitting. Manager Max McIntyre said of this, "We're humbled to have made it. It's gonna be tough next year, but we feel we're up for the challenge. We'll take it one step at a time, and at the moment, our top priority is gonna be to win the entire II.2 League." The Pirates do appear to be ready for legends, with a 300+ rating good enough for top 12 status (the top tier is comprised of 12 teams). But whether they can do well at the next level or not, we'll just have to wait and see. After having a losing record each of their first 9 seasons, the team hasn't had a losing season since the single-digit-two-thousands. It would be nice to keep that streak alive.

Apr 07 2020: Top 25 Ranking - by mduban4 on October 30th, 2014

The Pirates have, for the first time in their history, made it into the top 25 rankings. This secures their position as an elite team. Congratulations to them for the accomplishment!

Feb 19 2020: Pirates move to Michigan - by mduban4 on October 16th, 2014

After their one year vacation at a temporary field in Hawaii, the Pirates are completing their transition from Greater Kingsfort, Nowhere to Dearborn, Michigan. They'll be moving into the newly built Dearborn Stadium. It is situated conveniently between the Detroit Metro Airport and the city itself. Dearborn is just about a 15 minute drive out of downtown Detroit. The Pirates are looking forward to acquiring many new fans in this large market. Best of luck to the Pirates in the upcoming 2020 season!
