May 03 2026: The Slow Start
- by Stormkrow on February 19th, 2016
“Good afternoon, and welcome to the BBR. Broken Bat’s all radio news show. I am your host, Chris Hoke, and my colleague, at the desk is James Durant.”
Chris continues, “Well James, this year’s season is well on its way; any surprises for you so far?”
James clears his throat and begins, “well the slow start out of the gates for the Hempstead Giants is rather disappointing. After last year’s performance, a lot of baseball elites thought the Giants were on their way up.”
Chris replies, “I agree. But when they dropped their proven manager for a more developmental manager, it turned a lot of heads. Let’s go now to colleague, Janice White, who is at the Giants stadium for this afternoon's practice.
“Afternoon Chris and James, I am Janice White of BBR, and I am currently at the Hempstead Field stadium for the Giants practice. After a surprisingly successful inaugural year under new ownership, the Hempstead Giants seem to have stumbled out of the gates this season. Last year’s 2nd place finish in the Eastern Division, with a record of 92 – 68, seems like it may have been just luck, as the Giants seem to be outmatched against their league rivals this year.
New team manager, Bruce "The Boss" Abercrombie, was quoted as saying, “our boys in the farm are developing nicely, but they’re not ready to cut their teeth in the big league as yet. However, as an organization, we need to keep in mind that these young guys are investments into our future, and bringing them up too soon may hinder their progress. Our veterans have more than proven themselves on the field. We may be battle-worn, but I have full confidence this club will find it’s groove. We just need a catalyst to kick it off, I just hope he doesn't wait too long to start this year’s spark.”
Janie continues, “Well that seems to be the teams position, the rookies are staying were they are for now. Let’s hope the Giants find that spark with the current roster, otherwise we might have another year of transition come next season.”
