Mar 08 2039: Boulder Free Zoner's Make A Stand - by JJNZ on January 1st, 2019

Team Owner JJNZ has mad some wholesale changes during the off season, the most notable of which is moving to Boulder, Colorado. A new mascot, the Free Zoner's hints as to the reason behind it.

"I visited Boulder on a trip to the States a few years ago after reading Stephen King's 'The Stand'. It was my favourite place of the 25 states I visited and given that 'The Stand' is my favourite book it was only appropriate to take the team there once the location finally came available!"

JJNZ was full of praise for Missoula and has it high on his list of future places to visit. He still has a contract with the city to supply water to the College Station Athletics.

Further changes include a new uniform and new manager Charley Dailey after previous manager Steve Foxx tried to hold the team to ransom with his wage demands.


Mar 04 2037: Mass Hall-of-Faming in Missoula - by JJNZ on July 29th, 2018

Missoula GM JJNZ was accosted by the media for his first press release since the 2032 season which was the last time he has been seen in public. Some say he has been hiding in a secret place in the Rockies while scouring the BB free agent market feverishly.....

Regardless, a completely unexpectedly successful 2036 season was enough to drag him out of the woodwork long enough to knight some of the key players from the season.

Among those who were inducted to the hall of farm were long time catcher Alfredo Marrero, under rated CF'er Enrique Prieto, pitcher Barry Livingston and franchise 3rd baseman Ricardo Soriano.

Soriano and Livingston in particular tell the story of the successful campaign as Soriano was claimed uncontested in 2024 while Livingstone was a barely contested claim from 2023.

JJNZ wishes to offer his commiserations to Tiger and the Kalamazoo Tigers who were clearly the best team of the season and unfortunately stumbled at the final hurdle of the season.

He also wishes to thank Haselrig of the Novi Doubledays, FreddyTheEye of the College Station Athletics, PrivateSnowflake of the Bloomington Thunder and buffmckagan of the Scranton Bears for being solid and reliable sounding boards in the seasons leading up to the victory.

JJNZ was heard wishing good luck to all BrokenBat players as he was whisked away by his security guard to an unknown location at the conclusion of the 'media ambush'.....


Jan 15 2032: Missoula Climbs to New Heights - by JJNZ on May 9th, 2017

For the first time in history Missoula has a team at LL3. Team owner JJNZ who took over the team at the end of the 2020 season was over the moon with the Polar Bear's performance after the all-star break in 2031, resulting in sneaking past Garnet's El Monte Eagles to take the division.

Key to last seasons performance, and the long term success is long-time prospect Ceaser Farjado who had a massive break out season. "Caeser has been the kinda guy we've been missing for a few seasons, he mashed his way onto the leaderboard last season, and given his relative youth (24), he's likely to end up on the overall boards in a number of categories.

3 young prospects have stepped into the rotation, Clark Sager, Desmond Hester and Thurman Nelson are expected to anchor the pitching staff for a number of seasons, and big things are expected of them if the team is to stay in LL3.


Jul 28 2029: Barry Livingstone's no hitter drags Missoula out of slump - by JJNZ on November 6th, 2016

At this start of the season Barry Livingstone was fighting for the 5th starting spot and boy has he earned it. In 17 starts this season he's sporting a 2.44 Era and an 11-4 record including a complete game 126 pitch effort, allowing only 4 walks over 9 no hit innings to break up a 6 game losing streak.


May 10 2028: All time leader Juarez released - by JJNZ on July 31st, 2016

Holder of many Missoula records Ivan Juarez has been granted his release by the club.

Team owner JJNZ hasn't held back in showing his displeasure following the teams disappointing start to the 2028 season, with the pitching staff copping most of the flak with another sub par effort thus far.

Juarez holds the records for the all time highest number of wins, strike outs, WHIP and second in innings pitching and ERA. Juarez will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at the end of the season.

A number of other players have already felt the wrath of the owners displeasure with veterans Jesus Arroyo and Jesse Lombardo having already found their way to new clubs, and one time top prospect Glenn Atkins on the waiver wire after his 3rd straight sub par season.
