Apr 07 2043: The Leprechauns look again to Pops - by Papa on November 15th, 2019
After a dismal 1-8 start with a minus 30 run differential 46 year old Pops Jenkins has been called back up from Triple A to fill the role of Pitching Coach and Missing Bullpen Link. This should be the spark that ignites Manager "Drunken" Karl Conley's bench alcohol and brings the Leprechauns back to the top of the league.
Mar 16 2042: Pops continues to AMAZE - by Papa on August 23rd, 2019
Just when the common East St. Louis fan thinks that he or she has seen everything. Manager Drunken Conley has made a move to improve the team. Pops Jenkins has been promoted to team pitching coach. Now the HOF Pops is Pitching Coach, part time mascot, and Setup Man 2. To prove his 45 year old arm can teach and command...he has posted a 4-1 record this spring with a 2.89 era. If this old man can straighten out Conley's pitching staff the Leprechauns can make a solid showing this season.
Mar 02 2041: Forever the Leprechaun - by Papa on May 31st, 2019
In the first game of his 25th yes 25th Spring Training Wesley "Pops" Jenkins had a scoreless outing and earned a big ole spring training "W". Fans have gathered outside the Irish Spring Dome throwing an impromptu East St Louis BBQ to show their appreciation of the Old Leprechaun.
Jul 16 2033: All Star Congrats - by Papa on September 6th, 2017
From the Leprechaun Baseball Operations overlooking the Mighty Mississippi from the great state of Illinois we want to congratulate all of the All Stars East and West! But especially our own "Skeeter" Jacobs and Jose Enriquez get special recognition. And at the ripe old age of 34 Jose had the West's lone stolen base and perhaps the oldest player to swipe an All-Star bag. Let's have a great 2nd have Ladies and Gentlemen!
Oct 24 2031: 2031...The Beginning - by Papa on May 1st, 2017
Papa, owner of the Leprechauns and new manager Eddie "The Boss" Stevens finished their first full season together with this storied franchise. After moving the team from Yankton SD to the Eastern Banks of the Mississippi River Papa has begun to build a legacy of Pot 0 Gold FEVER!!! The Wee Li'l Man and the wearing of the green are fueling a movement that is becoming a great wave of Mid-State Pride and a Left Handed Mo-chine that will be a force for years to come. Thanks for Season 1
