Oct 22 2037: Bowie Clinches, Will face National City in Playoffs - by Benchwarmer on October 1st, 2018

Bowie has clinched the VI.14 championship with a strong run in the second half of the season. They enter the playoff as the underdog to the National City Rebels, who have been the team to beat all season. "It's a surprise, really. We are still working on a rebuild, but it will be nice to go right back up to League V the year after relegating." said owner Benchwarmer. "Our goal next year is to stay up and continue getting stronger. We have a lot of promising young talent that we fully expect will bring us a lot of success."

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.
