2029 SIMBL PLAYOFF REPORTS

HAWAII WINS 2029 SIMBL CHAMPIONSHIP IN A CLASSIC FULL SEVEN-GAME SERIES AGAINST OREGON

Pioneers Let A 3-2 Series Lead Slip Away As Pineapples Finally Win First SIMBL Title In Franchise History After Three Previous Trips To SIMBL CS


Both Oregon GM Tim Imasa and Hawaii GM Troy Vogel rolled the dice by starting their #1 starting pitchers on 81% rest for the deciding Game Seven of the 2029 SIMBL Coveted Cup Championship.  The Pioneers threw youngster ace Francisco "El Fuego" Martinez while the Pineapples threw 35 year-old veteran Trevor Brooks (above) who was acquired in the off-season in a trade with Seattle.  After going 7-17 with a 5.36 ERA last season for the Seawolves, Brooks put together an 18-8 3.81 ERA season this season and was superb in 7.2 innings throwing scoreless ball allowing only 4 hits in the championship-deciding Game Seven of the 2029 SIMBL CS.

Oregon's upcoming SIMBL superstar Bobby Papesh (left) is comforted by shortstop Jason Hamilton (right) after the Pioneers let a 3-2 series lead leave their hands and lost Games Six and Seven on the road in the 2029 SIMBL Coveted Cup Championship Series.  Oregon will be the team to beat again in the Union League next season featuring an impressive several young core, which includes Papesh and Hamilton, that GM Tim Imasa will  build off of.  The Pioneers advanced to their first SIMBL CS since the 2020 season and the third in the charter franchise's 25-season history.

Hawaii's Deryk Ryles (above) smells victory rounding the bases after smashing a home run in 2029 SIMBL CS Game Seven.  The former #1 overall pick of the 2025 SIMBL Draft is a SL MVP candidate for this season and continued his onslaught in the Pineapples' run to their first SIMBL title hitting 7 home runs and driving in 17 runs while batting .276 in 21 postseason games.

Down to two games to one to the SL champion Hawaii Pineapples of GM Troy Vogel the UL champion Oregon Pioneers of GM Tim Imasa bounced back to go up three games to two and were one win away from the second SIMBL championship in franchise history and their first since the 2011 season.  After winning three straight games and going on the road against a 108-win team of assembled high-priced star veterans proved formidable and the Pioneers lost Games Six and Seven in Honolulu and the Hawaii Pineapples are the 2029 SIMBL champions.  Hawaii wins the first SIMBL title in franchise history after making it to the SIMBL CS in 2009, 2012 and 2016 led by SIMBL charter GM and franchise founder David Bliley but lost to their nemesis the San Diego Warewolves each time which featured epic and classic duels between SIMBL Hall Of Fame pitchers and the two top winning pitchers in SIMBL history in San Diego's Bobby Grimes and Los Angeles' James Sousa.

The two league champions GMs decided to roll the dice and go with their #1 aces of their staff for Game Seven though both Oregon's Francisco Martinez and Hawaii's Trevor Brooks were declared rested but at only 81%.  The chance paid off for Hawaii as the left-handed veteran Brooks threw 7.2 innings allowing only 4 hits, no runs, no walks while striking out seven. The 27 year-old Martinez, the former #4 overall pick in the 2024 SIMBL Draft, pitched well but was eventually banged up by Hawaii's top-rated offense getting home runs from sluggers Deryk Ryles, Carlos Molina and Gran Moulder, each who had over 35 homers each this season in a powerhouse Pineapples offense which set a SIMBL team single-season record of 244 home runs and produced one of the top team run totals in the SIMBL's 25 seasons of history with 889 and also had another historic mark of hitting a whopping .273 as a team, the highest in the 11-season old SIMBL New File Era.

Hawaii's march to the 2029 ring included grueling comeback seven-game series wins against GM Andy Hutchinson's Knoxville Lumberkings in the SLDS and also against GM Tim Melican's Tampa Bay Silverbacks in the SLCS.  The Pineapples join history as one of the very few teams to go the full seven games each series, 21 in all, en route to earning their SIMBL championship.

Not to be overshadowed by their powerhouse offense, Hawaii's rotation of Trevor Brooks (3-2 2.82), Fernando Martinez (3-2 4.57 ERA), Carlos Serrano (1-1 2.38 ERA) did their part as well as SL Fireman Of The Year favorite Todd Newell who came off the disabled list and went 2-0 with two huge comeback wins in Games One and Two of the SIMBL CS and with 3 important saves while not allowing a run in 4.1 innings pitched in five important games.

Propelling the Pineapples to their first title throughout the postseason were SL MVP candidate and former #1 pick of the 2025 SIMBL Draft Deryk Ryles (.276 AVG 7 HR 17 RBI), veteran stars Zachery Dye (.303 AVG 3 HR 13 RBI), Carlos Molina (.263 AVG 5 HR 14 RBI), Kendrick Templeton (.309 AVG 6 HR 13 RBI), Gran Moulder (.301 AVG 5 HR 16 RBI) and a surprising postseason output by Robert Stuart (.339 AVG 3 HR 10 RBI).

The SIMBL CS and all postseason MVPs will be announced shortly in a separate league announcement.

Congratulations to Troy on his first SIMBL championship and to Tim for an an amazing run and to all SIMBL GMs on another great, fun and competitive season, winning or losing, rebuilding or competing.  The 2029 off-season finances have been revealed and will be announced in Westbury Cannons GM and SIMBL Financial Commissioner Bill Atteberry's annual report via post and email.  Then, the official 2030 off-season SIM schedule will be announced and the off-season will begin as the SIMBL heads towards its 26th season of history.
