Apr 25 2037: Record Set by the Cash Register - by Benchwarmer on August 14th, 2018

Today, Lloyd "Cash Register" Adams set the all time team record for career strikeouts by ringing up 4 batters in 1-2/3 innings of relief at the end of an otherwise forgettable game for the Blue Crabs. "This is a really special moment for me," said Adams after the game. "I never imagined how far I'd come, and to do it with Bowie my entire career is such an honor." The fans began chanting "ring 'em up" as Adams entered the game, and cheered and began the chant again after he recorded his 1673rd strikeout to break the old team record. This is a record that looks like it will stand for a long time, and Adams has plenty of time to add to his record still. "I feel like I could keep doing this for a few years as long as my arm holds up. I hope to be around for a little while longer." To commemorate this event, the team will be selling limited edition cups that come with a lid shaped like a cash register at the team shop and in all of the food shops around the stadium.

Mar 16 2037: The Cash Register Approaches Milestone - by Benchwarmer on August 3rd, 2018

Ace pitcher and strikeout king Lloyd "Cash Register" Adams appears poised to set an all-time record for career strikeouts for the Blue Crabs. He needs only 23 to surpass the legendary Mark Lewis. It seems like a pretty sure bet that the Cash Register can ring up enough batters to claim the all-time team crown, and in about 300 innings less than Lewis.

May 06 2030: McDaniel Released - by Benchwarmer on December 31st, 2016

The team announced that it has parted ways with long-time DH Chris McDaniel. "Chris decided it was time to go a new direction, he knew he was not performing the way he needed to." Said team owner Benchwarmer. "We wish him all the best with his new team or in retirement, whichever way he decides to go."

Oct 20 2029: Bowie Clinches With 4 Games Left - by Benchwarmer on November 27th, 2016

Finally after several seasons of near misses, the Bowie Gulls have finally won V.7 East to move up to LL IV. "This represents several seasons worth of work building this team. I've got guys that I drafted or picked up when I took over ownership pulling a lot of the weight. This is really something special. Hats off to Broken Arrow, they fought to the last." said team owner Benchwarmer. "Wow, this is amazing." said star 1B Yusuke Fujita after scoring the winning run on a sac fly in the 10th inning to win the game and clinch the division. Fujita was mobbed at home plate by his teammates after he scored. Bowie will now face old rival Missoula in the playoffs. Last time these two met, Bowie got the better of their post season matchup.

Apr 12 2029: Stover Fired, Reed Hired - by Benchwarmer on October 8th, 2016

Amidst a slump that dates back to last season, the Gulls have decided to fire their manager Ike Stover, and in his stead hired Rob Reed. "It's time to put some fire under the belly of this team" quipped Reed in his introductory press conference. "We have a bit of an early hole to dig out of, but I think we can do it."
