Nov 04 2035: Fast Eddie wins Hawks' second ROTY award in a row. - by GullyFoyle on May 4th, 2018

Following Christian Casanova's success in 2034, Fast Eddie Williams was named 2035 Rookie of the Year. Williams was the only Hawks player to play in all 160 games. Among his highlights were 39 steals, and a decent batting average of 0.266.

No announcement came about likely cuts from the team, but it is almost certain there will be some as the Hawks would enter next season with a major league roster with an average age of almost 29 if no changes were made.

Jan 15 2033: Leonardo Gamez retires. Three others waived. - by GullyFoyle on July 22nd, 2017

At the age of 36 Leonardo Gamez, Dayton Hawks starting pitcher for 11 seasons, has retired following a meeting with new Hawks manager Ismael Uribe. Gamez, who won 46 games during the Hawks miracle three promotions in a row had a 6-9 record last season, with a 4.500 ERA, the worst of his career. However Leonardo will be remembered as one of the best pitchers ever to play for Dayton, and was immediately inducted into the team's Hall of Fame.
Also waived following Uribe's appointment were starting pitcher Zach Price, 10-8 last season, 95-70 for his career, relief pitcher Joo Won Nam, and catcher Art Allen.

Uribe also hinted that further cuts may come, and though he didn't say where they may be, most observers point to the Hawks outfield as being the most likely place to see players leave.

Oct 24 2032: Ascensio out; Uribe in - by GullyFoyle on July 18th, 2017

After a disappointingly inconsistent 2032 season, the Dayton Hawks today announced the firing of Manager Victor Ascensio. While acknowledging his relative success in avoiding relegation two seasons in a row, Hawks owners representative Gully Foyle cited Ascensio's failure to improve Hawks pitching as the main reason for change.

The Hawks also announced the hiring of Ismael Uribe as their new Manager. Uribe, from Mexico City, guided the New York Yankees to promotion in 2031 and is immediately expected to look at ways to improve the pitching in Dayton. Whether this includes changes in personnel is not yet known.

Jun 15 2031: Luis Díaz Missing - by GullyFoyle on March 29th, 2017

Hawks pitcher Luis Díaz did not return yesterday from the road trip to Racine. Díaz, who was not seen leaving the team's hotel in downtown Racine, was involved in a heated confrontation with Hawks' coaching staff after allowing a walk, when scores were at the time even, in the 9th inning of the 2nd of the Hawks 5 games in Racine. Díaz did play again in game 3 but has not been seen since. For now the Hawks are being silent on the matter. Coach Victor Ascencio directed queries to the public relations office, as did owners' representative Gully Foyle. However, no one in the public relations office had any answers.

Díaz has been on the Hawks roster for 11 years, and if this is the end of his time in Dayton, then it is a bizarre ending.
