Aug 31 2045: Thunder Ship Shannon Out - by PrivateSnowflake on May 26th, 2020

Bloomington, IN.: Sparky Shannon was relieved of his managerial duties today as the club looks to retool ahead of the 2046 season. In two separate stints in Bloomington, Shannon led the Thunder to two Legends division crowns, a LLII pennant, and the 2043 Cup Championship.

Shannon recorded a 539-519 regular season record and an amazing 127-57 record in Cup play.

Former Murfreesboro manager Sheldon Brown has been brought in to guide the club over the final 43 games. The club would not comment on Brown's long-term outlook in Bloomington.

Aug 31 2043: Pitching Propels Thunder In Cup Tourney - by PrivateSnowflake on December 24th, 2019

Pasadena, CA.: The Bloomington Thunder closed out the Pasadena Owls on a hot evening in front of a capacity crowd of 30,000 in the same fashion they had done all tournament long, by holding the home team to two runs over two games. Sporting a miniscule 2.37 team ERA and an impressive .204 BAA for the tournament, Bloomington coasted to the club's first-ever Cup Championship.

Aug 31 2042: Shannon back in Bloomington - by PrivateSnowflake on October 8th, 2019

Bloomington, IN: Hours after his release from Troy, Matt Shannon has reached an agreement to return to the Thunder dugout as manager. Despite a return to the top division, Preston Orlando was unable to duplicate his success from a year ago and once Shannon became available, a split was unavoidable. Shannon returns 7 seasons removed from a Cup semi-final run and 6 seasons removed from a Legends East Division crown.
