Jun 27 2027: DiMaggio Hits 100! - by Carcharoth on May 21st, 2016

Veteran Don DiMaggio, who has been with the Elyria Blue Jays since their time at Brunsway Point, picked up his 100th career win with the team last week. In a tight game with the West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, DiMaggio pitched an 8 inning gem, giving up 2 ER on 6 hits and 1 walk with 1 strikeout. After the game, he admitted, "[the team] wasn't very confident going into our series with LA. We knew it would be tough, but I'm glad I was able to pitch a good game and give us a shot at the series win tomorrow." Clyde Armetta pitched the 9th to pick up his league-leading 22nd save.

After a disastrous 2026 season, DiMaggio was glad to start turning his performance around. However, even with DiMaggio's strong start to the year, management has indicated that changes may be coming in the near future. "We are very happy that Don has reached such a remarkable milestone with Elyria," said Carcharoth, the team's GM. "He has been an integral part of our team, the veteran presence that led us to our league championships in the 2024 and 2025 seasons. However, our goal this year is both to compete for the championship and continue to develop our rookie pitching to carry us forward in LL IV. We are confident in our pitching staff and our farm system has a number of guys looking for big league innings. Depending on how the next few weeks pan out, changes may have to be made."

When asked about a possible release, DiMaggio did his best to make light of the situation. "I suppose I pitch too deep into games," he joked, citing his team-leading 7 IP per start. "It's true, we have strong, younger guys who are starting to establish themselves. [Dwight] Clements (6-3, 2.00 ERA) has been absolutely lights out so far this season, definitely the best pitcher in the East. Unfortunately, roster changes are completely outside of my control. I'm just going to go out there and do my best with every start to remind team management why I am still a valuable part of this team."

The Blue Jays currently sit in 2nd place in the East with a 35-30 record, 1 game back of the Evansville Cubs.


Jul 14 2023: A fresh start - by Carcharoth on July 21st, 2015

After being stagnant for far too long, it is time for the Elyria Blue Jays to turn things around. We plan to build from the bottom up, and aim to become top contenders within three years.
