Oct 13 2055: Hawks Clinch Division Title, Champaign Flows in the Clubhouse. - by Ken_Kennilworth on July 15th, 2022

Today the Charleston Hawks secured a playoff berth with a 6-5 win over the host St Charles Sluggers, then held an hours long celebration in their locker room, drenching all there in sparkling wine.

Commented Manager Mariano Barrios "I am proud of how our guys rallied late in season when challenged by Bossier City. All the teams in our division played quality ball all year long and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to represent them in the playoffs."

When asked about how he would prepare the Hawks to the playoffs, Barrios said "because the final standings are locked in for the division, we will rest our veterans while giving some of our young players experience. Also, we will honor long time Hawk veterans by having them assume the roles of manager & coaches in the final series as my coaches and I will take off those days."

Team Stadium Manager & VP of Marketing Seymore Butz also announced that tickets for the playoffs will go on sale tomorrow.

Mar 30 2053: Hawks CEO urges passing of Measure 160 - by Ken_Kennilworth on December 21st, 2021

From: Julius Sleveen, chairman of the board and CEO of the Charleston Hawks Baseball, Inc.

2052 saw the franchise lose more than a million of profits. And starting in 2053 the Hawks face a significantly more challenging operating environment and greater compliance requirements. Stadium upgrades with improvements to access roads are needed to maintain the positive fan experience associated with our games and all other events held at the Charleston Dome. We join with the mayor of Charleston in asking the public to vote yes on Measure 160, a bond issue to raise $500 million for the needed improvements with repayment by a 1% increase in sales tax city wide. Without these improvements the long-term financial competitiveness of the franchise is in doubt as well as its ability to remain a part of the Charleston community.

Jul 16 2049: Charleston Hawks busy signing free agents - by Ken_Kennilworth on March 17th, 2021

Club General Manager, Joe King, in an exclusive to the Broken Bat Record, today commented on his club's recent series of free agent and waiver signings. “We are pleased with the recent additions and we will continue to have a leading presence in the waste-to-value circular economy. Our head talent scouts, Ben Thar & Don Thatt, have done a fine job in locating talented players that we feel can contribute to the success of the franchise.”

Jul 09 2049: Message from Chairperson to Stakeholders - by Ken_Kennilworth on March 16th, 2021

This first half will be recalled as one of the most challenging periods in my long leadership history of 5 seasons. The resilience of the franchise was on display with continued investment for the future and leveraging competitive strengths within the strategy of major league performance and player development. With a growing digital presence increasingly deploying cloud based artificial intelligence, I am confident the club can continue to drive long-term sustainable growth for all while moving toward carbon neutrality.
