After a long dispute over a new stadium, which the city council declined, the Amarillo Wranglers ownership have decided to move the team from Texas to Madison, Alabama (nicknamed Rocket City), and after a vote by the fans in the area have chosen "Trash Pandas" as their mascot.

Manager Terry Stratton said, "I'm excited about this move and am ready to bring our brand of high quality professional baseball to North Alabama."

It took all 7 games, but the Amarillo Wranglers won the championship over the Manchester Falcons. Manager Bobby Caruso was ecstatic. "The ownership had a 5 year plan, and I'm just glad that the players and I could come through and make that plan a reality. Even better we got our revenge on Manchester from 2025."

This is only the 2nd championship ever for Amarillo, and the first since 2006, some 22 seasons ago.
