Aug 21 2041: Louis McDuffie and Tyler Rodgers to the Catfish Hall of Fame - by Dcmrulz on July 20th, 2019

Congratulations for "King" Louis McDuffie and Tyler "T-Rod" Rodgers for their inductions to the Catfish Hall of Fame. Their contributions to the team as they progressed from V to Legends has not gone unnoticed, and they have been emblematic of the peak of Catfish perfection. While the Catfish may be back to toiling away in league V again, we will never forget the accomplishments that these two have brought.


Jan 15 2026: Farewell, Ricky Mitchell - by Dcmrulz on January 23rd, 2016

We honor the accomplishments that Ricky Mitchell have provided to the Catfish these 15 seasons, but his time has come to an end. The Catfish released him today.


Oct 28 2023: Team Update #4 - by Dcmrulz on August 19th, 2015

It is with great sorrow that the Huntington Catfish must part ways with longtime C Eugene O'Donnell.
He will be missed by the organization.


Jul 08 2023: Catfish Team Diary #3 - by Dcmrulz on July 20th, 2015

Seems like this will be a yearly thing. The first half of the 2023 season is nearing its close, and the Catfish of Huntington are holding a 7 game lead over the Catfish of Sioux City, riding on the backs of a 3.41 team ERA and some excellent hitting work by Larry Riley (.324/.400/.545), Hiroshi Saitou (.291/.384/.547) and a surprise season from Alvin Gentry (.304/.369/.543).

On the other end, it appears Ricky Mitchell is on pace to have his worst regular season since 2017, with a BAA of .235, and an under 50% Quality Start Rate (In 2017, Mitchell finished 10-10 with only 5 QS in 35 starts). His work has been uplifted by Blackhawk Ibarra however, who is on pace to have a very similar season to last year, with similar ERA, Ks and BAA.)


Here's to some marked pitching improvement in the 2nd half, while maintaining the offense and league-bet +126 Run Differential.

Catfish Rising!


Aug 25 2022: Catfish Team Diary #2 - by Dcmrulz on May 16th, 2015

114 games in, Catfish looking really good for another promotion. There are going to be some tough decisions to make over the next couple of seasons, however as the salaries climb and the years creep up. A logjam of prospects are starting up, so how the roster looks in the future will be interesting.
