Oct 21 2032: Norfolk clinches promotion
- by jdar25 on July 17th, 2017
The Norfolk Rebels previously known as Orlando Sharks have punched their ticket to III with a 4-2 win over the Lincoln Park Wolves. The Rebels got on the basepaths early loading the bases twice with 0 outs but failed to score a single run either time while former 1st round Pick Geoffrey Tackett cruised through the Lincoln Park Lineup Striking out 6. The tie was finally broken in the 6th on a 393ft Home run by Rookie C Darryl Greene his 3rd of the season in his 5th Career Game. He then followed this up by gunning down a runner attempting to steal a base keeping the score 1-0. After a rough 8th Inning for Tackett where he allowed two runs the Rebel's all league closer Justin Levine came on to record a 4-out save his 52nd of the year clinching the East Title.
Mar 14 2030: 2030 Season
- by jdar25 on December 16th, 2016
With Spring Training winding now seems as good as time as ever to reflect on my teams as the first season looms.
We started off with relocating the team to Norfolk despite being from Rhode Island the state the team was perviously located in. Norfolk is a good city and a good place for this team to grow down the line. The roster I have inherited isn't bad we have good hitters and the pitching is average but I have hopes that are team can run with the Bulldogs who won the cup last year.
Are Farm System reflects the majors roster with great hitters 3 15 POT but lacking in pitching. Hopefully we can turn that around but as it stand pitching is a key need.
Aug 31 2029: Make Orlando great Again

I have taken Control of the Providence Cubs and will return them to the former glory that they achieved in legends. looking at the history I can see that this has not done as well in providence. That will change with John Henry Money this team can and will go anywhere it pleases. The Sharks/Cubs will be made great again.
Oct 24 2023: It’s Over
- by Mig2012 on August 18th, 2015
My 13th complete season in this game is going to be the one where my team’s winning streak will end. After 8 consecutive league wins, the last 4 in Legends, the streak is finally over.
This record of 4 consecutive wins puts the Orlando Sharks in #2 in the all-time list of teams with more consecutive wins in the East Legends League, a list topped by the Legendary Saratoga Cowboys with 5 wins, and followed by another Legendary team, the Bay City Lions, with 3 wins.
It’s the end of a cycle and with that my cycle as this club’s owner comes to an end as well. Pains me to leave a team I’ve invested so much into but I’ve been here for too long and it’s time for a change.
Looking back at my accomplishments in this game I couldn’t be happier. I picked up a team in division VI and brought it to the Legends in only 7 seasons, and in only 4 from division V, beating none other than the Bay City Lions to enter Legends for the 1st time.
I’m also proud to have finished each and every season with a winning record, always finishing in the top 2 places, with the exception of my 2nd season, when I finished 3rd.
I never won the Cup, but I made it to the final once in 2017, and with what went on in that season with Las Vegas, I like to think that trophy belongs to my team.
I also won every play-offs played outside the top division. In the Legends league I only managed to win it one time, and the only reason why I didn’t win it more was because I was always facing the best team of all time in Broken Bat, the Thunder Bay Red Raiders.
With all the success I enjoyed, I ended up bringing the Club from the bottom of the Rankings to #1 in 2020, and I’m going to leave it again in #1, and, most importantly, in #5 in the all-time list of teams with more prestige.
What will happen to the Orlando Sharks in the future, what path the next owner will take, is a mystery to me. All I know is the path I’m taking at the end of this season. Obviously, that is not relevant to mention here. Maybe I’ll go manage a football team or a basketball team now, or even a new baseball team, who knows, who cares.
What matters is this is Orlando Shark’s first press release and it will be the last one under my command.
I very much enjoyed most of the time I’ve been here and I wish to thank all of those who contributed to that, especially Commissioner Steve Solana, without whom none of this would have been possible.
Take care you all.
