The Kincardine Cubs are the first team ever to claim a regular season title in the Midwestern Ontario Senior Baseball League.

Kincardine clinched first place overall in the regular season standings and wrapped up the inaugural season for the MOSBL with a 9-9 tie on the road Sunday afternoon against the Lucan Irish Nine.

It was the final regular season game of the year for Kincardine, and the result leaves the Cubs in top spot with a 16-1-1 record. Listowel finished two games back of the Cubs at 14-3-1.

It means Kincardine will head to this weekend's MOSBL playoff tournament in Listowel as the top-seeded team.

The format and schedule for this weekend's MOSBL tournament was unavailable as of press time, as several teams were completing the 18-game regular season schedule over the weekend. Watch for more details online later this week at www.independent.on.ca.
