Press Releases:

Nov 04 2042: North Las Vegas congratulates award winners - by crazediamond on October 25th, 2019

NLV is excited to announce their first Cy Young winnger, Kai Kameāloha. Kai is joined by last season's rookie pitcher of the year Genaro Altamirano as all league pitchers. It was a fantastic year for NLV pitching as they ran away with the top 4 Cy Young vote getters.

This season, 1B Fai Gao and SS Julio Gutierrez were rewarded with their first gold gloves.

Oct 24 2042: after 15 seasons, North Las Vegas finally wins the division - by crazediamond on October 21st, 2019

The division race came down to the last 3 games of the season. In the end, the North Las Vegas Octopuses won the title in owner Crazediamond's 15th year (3.5 calendar years).

It is the franchise's 3rd division win, following efforts in 2014 and 2021 under previous management.

It is the team's 6th 90 win season since 2027, and 2nd best since a 99 win 2036 season that resulted in a 3rd place finish (!).

Oct 04 2030: Armstrong Bender sets VI.20 career stolen base record - by crazediamond on February 9th, 2017

North Las Vegas congratulates Armstrong Bender on setting the VI.20 league career stolen base mark at 592.

Bender is a life long NLV player, having worked his way up through the minors before his promotion to the majors 7 seasons ago. In recognition of his major league service, including a rookie of the year award, and all star and all league honors at outfield and catcher, the Octopusses have inducted Bender into their hall of fame.

Fans should make a point to attend the remaining Octopus home games, as team owner crazediamond has mentioned that given Bender's advanced age and salary, he might not have much of a career left with North Las Vegas.

Jan 15 2028: Sparks Aliens are on the move - by crazediamond on June 28th, 2016

Not content to simply dump "highly" paid, old, terrible players, the Sparks Aliens also dumped some moderately paid, old, bad players.

Considering the last place, -240 run differential from the 2027 season and that the free agent list is seemingly flush with better players with a lower salary, why the hell not.

Finally, giving up the destitution of Sparks for the less destitute environs of North Las Vega, the Aliens are now the Octopuses. Between now and opening day, the management is determined to come up with a pitching analogy for our mascot.
