Jul 01 2063: New Jacksonville Jets All-time Saves Record!!! - by gmat14 on February 24th, 2024

On June 29th, 2063, Chuck "Bail" Bonds broke the all-time franchise record for Saves with his 274th as a Jet (352nd for his career) passing Toren Rouse, who had the previous record of 273 for 16 years. Chuck came into a 5-3 game against the Brea Buffalos and allowed no runs on 2 hits and a strikeout to record his 19th save of the season. We were able to catch up with Chuck after the game and he had this to say, "To be the new Saves King for this franchise is an honor. When ownership brought me in, they told me that I was the missing piece to their championship puzzle. They put their trust in me and I'm just happy that after 7 years, 274 saves and 2 titles, I've been able to keep up my end of the bargain". Bonds was immediately mobbed by the entire team and doused in Gatorade as the team celebrates the latest milestone in the Future Hall-of-Famer's career.

Nov 02 2062: 2062 League Champions! - by gmat14 on January 11th, 2024

For the first time in franchise history, the Jacksonville Jets are moving up to League IV! One year after their disappointing 2061, finishing in 2nd place for the 3rd consecutive season, the Jets were looking to breakthrough behind the strength of their pitching staff. After a slow start to the season, going 26-24 in their first 50 games and in 4th place, the Jets engaged the afterburner in inter-league and soared into first behind a 45-15 record. They maintained most of the momentum going 24-19 in the next 43 games to clinch the division title with 7 games remaining. As the young players in the system were inserted into the lineup and rotation for the last 7 games, we caught up with long time captain of the team, Luis Roldan, who had announced at the start of the season that he would be retiring. This is what the future Hall-of-Famer had to say about this season, and his career, “Going through this season was definitely one of the most special experiences I’ve ever had. To experience promotion twice in my career at two different points is humbling. When we promoted into League V I was in the prime of my career and to be able to see us promote into League IV now that I’m one of the old dogs is something I will cherish forever. I am glad to have been able to spend my entire career with this franchise and have the privilege of being the team captain for the last 9 years. I will miss this team, but I know that Bobby [Kirk] will do a wonderful job as the next team captain”. The Jets went on to finish the season with 96 wins and win the League Championship 4-2.

Oct 22 2057: 2057 Division Champs!!!!! - by gmat14 on December 18th, 2022

For the first time since 2021 the Jacksonville Jets are Division Champs!!!! In a roller coaster of a season the quality of this team shone through. In a year where it wasn’t known exactly what the pitching staff was going to provide, Manager Harris managed to get the pitcher to turn in the best performance in team history allowing 4.3 runs per game led by Cy Young favorite Edgar “Karate” Zarate finally having his breakout season. Another breakout star was Salvador Becerra, with team captain Luis Roldan saying about him “We knew he could have this kind of season, we just didn’t know when. But with the work he put in the off season, the clubhouse knew we could see something special this season and boy did he deliver.” This team almost let a 8 game lead with 33 to play slip away but managed to hold on winning on run differential. We will see if the pitching staff can turn in a repeat performance next season in a League V that features vaunted rival St. Joseph Hitmen.
