Apr 29 2043: Hopper pitches no hitter - by patborders on November 21st, 2019

Congrats to our second year stud, John "Hawkeye" Hopper, who pitched an 11-strikeout no hitter against Muskegon Heights yesterday. Hopper, named rookie pitcher of the year in 2042, allowed only two runners, one on an error, and one on an eighth inning walk. Hopper is part of an emerging core of youngsters that long-suffering Texarkana fans are hoping can finally propel the team up from the bottom division into a sustainable winner.


Oct 20 2038: Twisters achieve promotion for first time! - by patborders on December 17th, 2018

The Texarkana Twisters clinched division VI.7 West this past weekend, achieving promotion for the first time since the club's founding as the Fort Worth Dragons in 2014. Three full seasons into the tenure of owner/GM Pat Borders, the aging squad will need a fair bit of retooling in the winter.

Asked whether next year's team will be built around youngsters coming up from the farm or a continued reliance on washed up major leaguers, Borders said, "We'll get a nice mix here."


Aug 19 2038: Rangel throws no hitter in debut - by patborders on November 30th, 2018

In his first game as a Texarkana Twister, veteran Daniel Rangel a 116 pitch no hitter versus the Fayetteville Cubs. The effort must have taken a lot out of the 32-year-old, as he was immediately placed on the 5-day DL following the impressive outing.

The division leading Twisters signed the $4 million man to shore up the team's starting pitching in the wake of injuries to ace Justin Sell and youngster Sean Woods. After a poor showing in interleague play, Texarkana finds itself just two games ahead of the bot-led San Jose Bearcats going into the final stretch of games.
