Apr 03 2036: Rosales hits #300!
- by Charlie Foxtrot on May 23rd, 2018
Josue Rosales hit his 300th home run in his 1367th game and followed that up two games later with his 301st, tying him with Randy Bruce for the franchise career record. Rosales has a few years left in his career and should leave Bruce far behind by the time his career with the 'Backs is over.

3B Randy Bruce hit home run numbers 300 and 301 in a 10-5 Razorbacks win. Bruce is the first Razorback to hit the milestone and also holds the team record for career RBI's. The team has stated that they won't be offering the 35 year-old third baseman a contract for next season but they look forward to inducting Bruce into the team Hall-of-Fame when he decides to retire.

The Razorbacks take the championship series 4 games to 1 over the favourite Roanoke Orioles. Nicolas Orellana had four saves and a 1.29 era and was named Team MVP for the series.
Aug 31 2021: Berry Released
- by Charlie Foxtrot on March 3rd, 2015
In a somewhat surprising move, the Razorbacks have released all-star 3rd Baseman Robert Berry. The diminutive Berry is a five time all-star, two time all-leaguer and has four gold gloves to his credit.
"This one hurt," GM Charlie Foxtrot said "This is one of those many times I wish there were trades in this game so I could have some measure of control as to where he goes and I could get some value in return. However (Randy) Bruce has been playing great this season and deserves a shot at playing his natural position. I hope a good team picks up Robert and he has shot at another title."
Berry was the team's lead-off hitter for years, however the last couple seasons his average has steadily dropped and his stolen bases have decreased as he has lost a step going into his thirties and he has been slotted into the 8th spot in the lineup this season.
"Wherever he lands," longtime teammate Kees Kroes said today "that team is getting a world-class defender, a good hitter and base-runner and a great teammate. We're going to miss him around here."
Jan 24 2021: Folsom Promotes!
- by Charlie Foxtrot on January 6th, 2015
After finishing second or tied for second in four straight seasons, the Razorbacks finally made the playoffs in league V.12 and rolled to their first league championship. Jay Walter received the Cy Young for his 20 win season, only the second 20 win season for a Folsom pitcher since Carlos Davila in 2008 who also received the award that year. Kroes, Berry and the gang will take their offensive depth to league IV.6 in 2021 to try and repeat their success.
