Press Releases:

Aug 21 2056: McMillan Canned; Whaley to Take Over as Manager - by 95th Cub on September 16th, 2022

In the midst of a disappointing 2056 season, the Racine Bombers have elected to part ways with manager Carlton McMillan, who has elected to retire, citing his age. Third base coach Calvin Whaley has been tabbed to manage the Bombers for the remainder of the season.
Dorsey Black has been hired as the new third base coach.


Jul 07 2056: Stray Cat: Lefebvre Released - by 95th Cub on September 4th, 2022

In the midst of a disappointing season for the Racine Bombers, longtime second baseman Felix Lefebvre has been released, and there are hints that this may only be the beginning regarding a veteran exodus out of the Belle City.
With the Bombers likely to be relegated after the season, GM 95th Cub has stated that Lefebvre's release was mainly a financial move, adding that "The Cat" had been playing well and that everyone at the ballclub hopes Lefebvre lands with a team that could use his bat to win a pennant.


Jun 04 2040: Viking Funeral for Erik the Red; Sanchez New Manager in Racine - by 95th Cub on April 13th, 2019

With the Racine Bombers playing listless baseball and facing the very real threat of relegation, longtime manager Erik Rogers has been relieved of his duties, Gery Woelfel reports.
Rogers had been in the midst of his twelfth year as the Bombers' skipper, and had led Racine to a pair of LL VI championships during his tenure, but owner 95th Cub had reportedly become increasingly frustrated by the club's inability to rise above LL V, as well as the lackluster development of the club's prospects under Rogers.
Replacing Rogers in the Belle City is veteran manager Jose Sanchez, who most recently served as the Rapid City Red Devils' manager last year.
Rogers' firing and the Bombers' poor performance reportedly has several veterans on edge, as Sanchez, lauded around baseball for his ability to develop young players, is expected to give some of the younger Bombers more playing time if the on-field situation doesn't improve, with some likely facing waivers.


Aug 09 2036: Barker Honored by Bombers - by 95th Cub on June 26th, 2018

In one of owner 95th Cub's first acts since returning to the Racine Bombers, club legend George Barker has been inducted into the team's hall of fame.
Barker, who spent almost his entire professional career as a Bomber after starring at San Diego State, also represented the USA in the World Classic five times in his career.
About the honor, Barker admitted that his one great regret was that he was unable to vault Racine anywhere near the Legends League, and though he wishes he could still play at the high level he was once capable of, he'd had a good career and is enjoying retirement.
Barker will throw out the first pitch at the Bombers' next home game against Azusa, and will also be in the booth during the broadcast on Spectrum Sports.


May 29 2033: Racine Releases Bailey - by 95th Cub on August 24th, 2017

Longtime Racine Bombers pitcher Willie Bailey has had a relatively tumultuous tenure since reaching the Major League level, sometimes showing flashes of brilliance, but in recent years, too often allowing home runs in bunches. Indeed, he actually hadn't allowed that many hits, but the majority of them had cleared the fences too often for the Bombers' taste, leading to Bailey's release.
In his place, prospect Sandy Hawke has been promoted from Star Prairie (AAA).
