Mar 06 2057: Bay City Owner Requests a "Bigger Wall" - by msigg6 on October 17th, 2022
In recent developments owner tough was berated that the Bay City Lions couldn't win a championship. He said that last season "there were too many homers in my ballpark! I want to mitigate those dingers out at left field. BUILD ME A WALL." Part of it might be due to the starting pitching staff consisting exclusively on left handed pitchers, with not many righties in the starting rotation. Thus, tough has hired a construction company to modify the ballpark for the first time in over 40 years. A new, state of the art scoreboard wall will don the left field area, towering of over 20 feet in height. Hopefully this helps the pitching staff out, as tough has championship aspirations for his club before Roach begins heavily declining...
Sep 04 2031: Back in the Top 25 - by msigg6 on April 18th, 2017
For the first time in a decade, the Bay City Lions have climbed back into the top 25, closing the date of September 4th, 2031 as the 23rd best team in the game. It's a testament to the hard work owner msigg has made in efforts to get the team back to the top again after their rebuild started in 2020, with the release of certain star players and the upbringing of rookies such as Aaron Jennings and the development of minor league players such as Rodney Pitts, Aroon "Angel" Sathriati, Andres Portillo, and other players who've been developed throughout the 2020s.
GM msigg just had to say this: "Just because I'm back near the top doesn't mean I'm a threat yet. I still have certain hitters developing and still need some depth in Pitching. This also doesn't mean I won't stop trying to put the best team out there possible to win. This phase is just the beginning of what we're about to do. We WILL return to the Legends...soon
