November 19th, 2020 - Panama wins first World Classic!
Underdog Panama defeated an undefeated American squad to become the unlikely 2048 World Classic Champions! Panama’s road to the finals was not easy – they had to eliminate Colombia, Australia, Mexico (in five games) and South Korea (in five games). Meanwhile the heavily favored Americans had breezed through their opponents without dropping a game. That all changed in the finals when the Panamanians swept the Yanks. Panama’s offense was powered by timely hitting from Jaime Castaneda and Jaime "Jailbreak" Fajardo while the pitching was bolstered by Sergio Aguilera with 4 wins and a 1.97 ERA in the Classic. Congratulations to Panama on their first World Classic Title!

Or was it...for those who remember a few seasons ago (season 2035 in February, 2018), the start of the season got wiped out by massive database corruption at the server host and the season had to be restarted – wiping out what would have been Panama’s earlier Classic title.

November 14th, 2020 - Season 2048 is here!
The season rollover is now complete, and the schedules are released. If you wish to relocate your club or modify your ballpark, you can do that now. The World Classic will start next Tuesday, and Spring Training starts next Friday.

November 12th, 2020 - Corvallis champions!
The Corvallis Ravens had a great season and capped it off with the 4-1 gentleman’s sweep of the Minneapolis Tigers. The series wasn’t particularly close, but the final game went to extra innings where Trevor Pruitt’s 2-run walk-off home run turned a loss into a win. The playoff MVP was Yoshi Nakata who won two starts and posted a 1.72 ERA. The Ravens are a true success store. lostraven took the team over in 2028 when they were down in league VI.19 (circa 2016 IRL) and has now built them into a champion. Congratulations to lostraven and the Corvallis Ravens!

November 9th, 2020 - Legends League Playoffs
Playoff time is here again and in the Legends League we have another fine match-up featuring the Corvallis Ravens (96-64) and the defending champions the Minneapolis Tigers (93-67). Minneapolis looks like they have a power advantage while the Ravens have stronger pitching. Should be a classic match-up! But remember, in a short series anything thing can happen. Good luck to lostraven and xLee227.
