FIR NL North Record in ’14 – 16-12 Record in ’13 – New Franchise
Made playoffs, eliminated by the Glory Days in the Quarters, Finished seeded 6th
New team for 2014
Luke had branched off from the now defunct Industrials to form his new club for 2014. The Firebirds started as most new teams do out the break, struggling falling in 5 of their first 8 games of the season. They hit their stride winning 7 of their next 12 before locking up the 6th seed after finishing the year winning 4 of 5.

FUN FACT: 1st team to score a run off Lee VanStreain(GLO) all season. Lee went the entire regular season and 52 Innings before giving up a run in the first inning of their Playoff series.
2015 GOALS FOR THE SEASON: The teams in the NL will continue to improve as will the Firebirds. Need to find another bat to help Luke in the lineup. Continue to take advantage of the non-playoff teams and the playoffs should be expected again in 2015.
