On June 23rd Santiago Vazquez took the hill for the Mount Prospect Raiders in Intraleague play versus the Rapid City Vikings. Vazquez is the unquestioned ace for the Raiders and he was dominant in this start as he pitched a perfect game. His final stat line was 9 innings pitched, O hits, O walks, 7 strikeouts, and 0 errors for the team. He managed the perfect game on only 101 pitches. After this start he is 10-3 on the season with a 2.33 ERA, 1.051 WHIP, 94 Ks, 7 Complete games and 2 Shutouts. He leads the league in Wins, Innings pitched, Strike Outs, and WHIP, and is 2nd in ERA.

After the 5 game sweep on the road in Rapid City the Mount Prospect Raiders have taken an 11 game lead in their division with a 47-18 record.

Oct 12 2020: Manager fired - by Olerud on December 20th, 2014

Longtime manager is reportedly let go and Roger Clarke has been hired as the new manager. Clarke has not coached since 2016 where he led the rebels to a last place finish in division VI. Roger Clarke has confirmed his hiring and says he's excited for the opportunity. "This team has never left division VI. A feat that is quite rare and ultimately I'd like to get this team to promote. It is not one season away but with some patience I think this team can turn things around.

Clarke's track record of a 30% win record in both the league and cup do not inspire confidence. This was probably more of a financial decision as former manager Gilberte was the third highest paid individual on the team at 1.9 million.


Oct 12 2020: Massive team changes followed by redirection - by Olerud on December 20th, 2014

The team has been bought out and the new owners have taken major changes. Over half the team was dropped or sent down to the minors. Many free agents were signed giving the team a whole new look. A few big money contracts were signed as well. Not many just four and for a while the team had a winning record. However, the new team didn't inspire fans to show up and after the first economic update the contracts were not sustainable. Two of the big contracts were dropped and the team will have to wait until next year before revisiting a stratagem. Hopefully when the new season starts the team can find some free agents that will make up a winning record and hopefully when the team is not guaranteed a sixth place finish as they are now this late in the season the fans will show up.
