Mar 14 2047: Happy Together! The Turtles Crawl into 2047 - by timothy on September 10th, 2020

Meet the Turtles! With the March 24th home opener fast approaching, here is a look at the new players in green pinstripes.

Julián Ocampo (starting pitcher) - An eight-year veteran from the Deerfield Beach Rats, Ocampo has a low lifetime WHIP of 1.35 and held opposing batters to a .232 batting average in 2046. Julián is also a six-time representative of his native Nicaragua in the World Cup.

Kai Kekoa (relief pitcher) - Joining the Turtles' pen, the Hawaiian native is also an eight-year veteran, with a lifetime ERA of 3.23. Hitters across those eight seasons have only managed a .208 batting average against Kai.

Tracy Jojima (relief pitcher) - A veteran who played in Legends 2042-2043, Jojima adds another lefty arm in relief. In 2045, Tracy held left-handed batters to an incredible .149 batting average in 116 1/3 innings of work.

Phillip Farris (shortstop) - In a platoon role, Farris hopes to "keep the line moving" against left-handed starters. After a year of inactivity, Farris brings both bat and considerable defensive ability to the Turtles' infield.

IN TURTLE NEWS: The March 24th opener will feature special guests "Flo and Eddie" (Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman) of '60s rock and roll legends the Turtles. The acclaimed singers will lead the West Fargo Grounds crowd in a rendition of "Happy Together" in the middle of the eight inning.
