Bulls End the 2009 Season with 22-28 Record -- The 2009 KIT League Season has come to a close. Although the team finished in fifth place out of six teams, the Bulls accomplished many achievements that are not readily apparent by looking at the season-end statistics and standings. The Bulls won more games in the 2009 season than in any previous season. With 22 wins out of 50 games, the Bulls had a final record of .440. Prior to the 2009 season, the Bulls had never won more than 18 games in a season (2007). The team’s win-loss record prior to the 2009 season was 47-89 in 136 games (.346). This record improved to .371 with a win-loss record of 69-116 in 186 games.

KIT League Standings
Historical standings since May 29th: Here
The Union City Greyounds had a nine-game winning streak that was broken on July 9th by the Tradewater Pirates.
Tyler McKay of the Owensboro Oilers pitched a 7-inning complete game shutout on July 1, 2009. The game was limited to seven innings because it was the first game of a double-header.
Three back-to-back homers were hit by Owensboro Oilers’ batters on June 28th in Marion. This is the first time in KIT League history that home runs have been hit by three consecutive batters. The event took place in the top of the fourth inning, contributing to the 6-1 win for the (then) first-place Oilers.
Cody Pack of the Owensboro Oilers hit 11 home runs in 2009. This number more than doubles the 2008 record of five home runs for the season.
On June 26th, Rob Dyer, of the Marion Bobcats, hit his first home run of the season in the Bobcats' 13-1 victory over the Owensboro Oilers. The 13-run win is also a record for the Bobcats in their two-year history with the league.
