Oct 20 2044: Bowie Clinches V.7 East Title - by Benchwarmer on March 23rd, 2020
With 2 games remaining in the season, Bowie has locked up the V.7 division title for the first time in over a decade. "This is a special bunch of guys," said manager Pat Allison. "We had a slow start to the season, but the bats woke up and the pitching has become lights out in the second half of the season. I'm looking forward to taking on the West champion in the playoff." The team was anchored by stellar pitching performances by Dante Rodriguez and Miguel Vasquez, both products of the Bowie farm system. "Really glad to see these guys being productive in the big leagues," said owner Benchwarmer. "It's been a while in coming, but these great drafts are starting to pay off. We'll see how we hold up in level IV next season."
Oct 16 2039: Fujita, Adams to Retire at End of Season - by Benchwarmer on March 3rd, 2019
Longtime franchise 1B "Mount" Fujita and P Lloyd "Cash Register" Adams have both announced that they will retire at the end of the season. Adams will retire with the most strike-outs in team history. His propensity for striking out batters earned him the nickname "Cash Register" as he "rang up" batter after batter. Fujita has been a fixture at first base for years, earning numerous gold gloves during his tenure, but seeing a reduced role this season as he has aged and a new up and coming 1B has proved his worth. Both are sure locks to the team hall of fame. Bowie wishes them both well after their careers.
