Jan 15 2034: Friars Settle in Houston - by TexasSeraphim on October 7th, 2017

Tex has settled the Friars in Houston after relocating the team to Lewisville, Texas for one year. When the press asked why he moved the team after a year, Tex stated that his long-term plan was to move to a major city in Texas to ensure the long-term economic stability of the club. Now that the Friars are in the fourth largest city in the United States, Tex vowes that the club is done relocating as long as he owns the team.

As for the press criticizing Tex for hiring young, inexperienced managers, Tex replied that a new owner should learn together with a bright, new manager for years to come. Only then could Lewisville be relevant, because all the good, experienced managers are already taken.


Jan 15 2033: Lancaster Relocate to Texas - by TexasSeraphim on July 23rd, 2017

After over a decade in Lancaster, CA, Tex has relocated the club to Lewisville, TX. Once considered as a possible relocation site for the Dallas Cowboys, Lewisville won the franchise, as they agreed to have taxpayers pay 95% of the stadium costs.

Tex also ensured that the relocated apartment residents on the stadium's current site get one free year rent at nearby apartments and also gave two season tickets to all forced to move out of their homes.

A majority of the minor league system was relocated to Texas, so Tex has been widely criticized that his players will not be able to adjust on the field to North Texas's extremely dry summer heat.


Sep 08 2032: New Ownership - by TexasSeraphim on July 6th, 2017

The Lancaster Friars, formerly the Athletics, have a new owner in Tex Cassian or Tex for short.

Tex is determined to turn this franchise around in the right direction and plans to relocate the Major League team to Fort Worth, Texas in the off season. Tex said that the off season's two priorities is to obtain a major league closer and to draft young pitching and hitting to strengthen the minor league system.
