Sep 14 2034: Knights Part Ways With Flanagan
- by ramar905 on December 9th, 2017
In an expected move the Reading Red Knights have announced the release of long time closer Louis Flanagan. The teams all-time save leader had recently lost the closer role while suffering through a poor season which saw his ERA regularly reach over 9.00. His control problems and routine inability to retire batters gave management little choice. At the time of his release Flanagan was ranked 15th in saves all-time and 6th among all active Broken Bat pitchers with 438 saves.

Jun 25 2032: Reading announces release of two veteran players
- by ramar905 on June 16th, 2017
In a move that was not entirely unexpected Red Knights management announced the release of veteran stalwarts OF Pablo Paz and 3B Andre Griffey. Both have seen significantly reduced playing time this season that is due primarily to their age and the emergence of younger players at their positions. Management added that their contributions throughout their careers have been one of the central factors in the club's rise to the Legends League this year. Both were proud products of the Knight's farm system who worked their way into the everyday lineup and can boast of solid major league careers. "Prince" Paz, an international draftee out of the Dominican Republic, holds the teams single season record for HRs with 42 and is second all-time in that category for the club. He was also a great fielder winning five Gold Gloves at CF. Griffey, a highly touted prep player out of Florida, ranks in the top ten for hits, HRs, RBIs and runs scored at the time of his release. The management thanks them for their years of service and wishes them well for the future.
