Aug 09 2036: Barker Honored by Bombers - by 95th Cub on June 26th, 2018

In one of owner 95th Cub's first acts since returning to the Racine Bombers, club legend George Barker has been inducted into the team's hall of fame.
Barker, who spent almost his entire professional career as a Bomber after starring at San Diego State, also represented the USA in the World Classic five times in his career.
About the honor, Barker admitted that his one great regret was that he was unable to vault Racine anywhere near the Legends League, and though he wishes he could still play at the high level he was once capable of, he'd had a good career and is enjoying retirement.
Barker will throw out the first pitch at the Bombers' next home game against Azusa, and will also be in the booth during the broadcast on Spectrum Sports.

May 29 2033: Racine Releases Bailey - by 95th Cub on August 24th, 2017

Longtime Racine Bombers pitcher Willie Bailey has had a relatively tumultuous tenure since reaching the Major League level, sometimes showing flashes of brilliance, but in recent years, too often allowing home runs in bunches. Indeed, he actually hadn't allowed that many hits, but the majority of them had cleared the fences too often for the Bombers' taste, leading to Bailey's release.
In his place, prospect Sandy Hawke has been promoted from Star Prairie (AAA).

Jan 15 2033: A Sad Day-Bombers Release Carmona - by 95th Cub on July 23rd, 2017

Enrique Carmona has been one of the best pitchers the Racine Bombers franchise has sent to the bump, but the 2032 season proved to be his swan song for the club he's spent his entire pro career with, as Racine's front office made the tough decision to part ways with their former ace. They hope Carmona finds work elsewhere, though his diastrous 2032 campaign may scare some teams off.

Jul 23 2031: Vaughn, Wise, Reynolds Given Walking Papers - by 95th Cub on April 8th, 2017

RACINE,Wis. - In a surprising move, the Racine Bombers have decided to issue pink slips to struggling P Hector Reynolds, as well as seldom-used young fielders Joseph Vaughn and Kenith Wise.
When push came to shove, Reynolds' 2-7 record, ghastly 8.53 ERA and 1.93 WHIP, combined with the Bombers' recent pitching woes causing them to cede first place to Clarksville, convinced Racine's front office to part ways with him.
Vaughn and Wise, meanwhile, simply weren't seeing the field very often, and in Vaughn's case, he had only appeared in one league game.
Taking Reynolds' spot on the pitching staff is Bryan "Hawkeye" Walter, who had gone 9-5 with 2 saves and a 1.29 WHIP in 25 appearances for AAA Star Prairie. Also called up from the Cloud Punchers was OF/1B Jim Flanagan.

Nov 04 2028: Phelps Shot Down as Bombers Manager; Rogers Takes Pilot's Seat - by 95th Cub on September 16th, 2016

The Racine Bombers' pitching troubles cost the club its spot in LL V, and the relegation has cost skipper Jason Phelps his post, and tomorrow, the club will introduce Erik Rogers as its new manager.
While the fielders largely bought into what Phelps was selling, many believe he'd lost the pitchers long ago. Rogers, whose reputation is that of being good with handling pitchers, formerly managed the LL III Midland Dogs, and was let go despite a solid 86-74 record this season.
Owner 95th Cub said that he'd wrestled with the decision for most of the season, as he likes Phelps as a person. "At the end of the day," the owner told the press, "it was just time for Jason to part ways with us."
