Feb 10 2035: Deadwood Changes Team Name, Logo - by wickersty on December 28th, 2017

Deadwood, formerly known as The Pioneers, has changed its team name to The Deadwood Ambulators in honor of the reknowned walking club based in Deadwood, SD during the 1800s.

The team has also revealed their new logo to support the name change, and is dedicating the changes to their modern era LL5 debut in 2035.

(The franchise was briefly in LL5 in 2008 as an unowned, unnamed organization.)

Sep 12 2034: The McElroy Era Begins - by wickersty on December 8th, 2017

The Deadwood Pioneers are excited to announce that Daniel "The Cannon" McElroy has been called up to the big club and will be making his major league debut Sat Dec 9th @ 2:00 pm against Arcadia.

McElroy has long been a coveted prospect due to his abilities behind the plate as a catcher and his elite rated arm strength. Hit bat has been improving during his time in the minor leagues, and management feels he is ready to join the big club and finish his development at the major league level.

McElroy will assume all catching duties for the remainder of the season, as Darrin Abbott assumes the backup catcher role.

"We're excited about what McElroy can do for us," said team owner wickersty, "both in our 2034 postseason push and into the future."

Deadwood is currently leading the West in LLVI.16.

Jun 25 2034: Emiliano Salcido To Make Major League Debut - by wickersty on November 17th, 2017

The Deadwood Pioneers are pleased to announce that Emiliano Salcido has gotten the call up to the big club and will be making his major league debut against Bristol on July 2nd BBT (Broken Bat Time).

The Pioneers are hopeful that Salcido will continue to develop at the pace he has during his previous few seasons in the minors.

Veteran hurler Christian Ontivaros has been designated for assignment to make room on the 25 man roster. Ontivaros is a well respected journeyman who was unable to continue his late-career reconnaissance from last season.

Nov 04 2033: Luther Polk - Rookie of the Year! - by wickersty on October 6th, 2017

The Deadwood Pioneers would like to congratulate Luther Polk on winning the VI.16 League Rookie of the Year for 2033!

Deadwood is lucky to have Luther as part of their rebuilt franchise and look forward to many more years with him as a Pioneer as we improve in LL6 and beyond!

Go Luther!

Oct 28 2033: One Year Into Rebuild... - by wickersty on October 4th, 2017

The Deadwood Pioneers would like to thank their outstanding fans for their patience and support during the total rebuild of the organization from Rookie League up to the big club.

We are one year into the rebuilding process, and have gotten much younger and freed up much financial obligation. We are poised to grow and add to our talent while organizing our finances in anticipation of the salary requirements of our future stars.

We will need more time, and we ask for more patience from our fans, but we will get there and we will make you proud.

Go Deadwood!
