Berri Warriors A Grade won its second title in a row and Berri Red won the club’s first B Grade premiership in something like 25 years when Riverland Baseball Grand Finals were played at Glassey Park last Friday night.
The A Grade match was perhaps closer than recent form had suggested with Renmark Angels rising for the occasion but just falling short of the well drilled minor premier, 4-3.
Dave Grenfell was amongst the players to lift Renmark and in fact won the Best On Ground Award from the losing side.
The exciting final brought back memories of the thrilling contest to decide the title in 2014/15 when Berri defeated Renmark 5-3 with USA recruit Nick Morrow inspiring the Warriors with a BOG performance.
In Friday night’s B Grade game Berri Red defeated Renmark Blue 9-5.
Berri Red’s Tony Halupka was named Best On Ground.
