Feb 17 2036: 2036 Spring Training - by oreohowell on May 10th, 2018
Many members of fan base have been wondering what will the upcoming season bring? Will another winning season be in the cards or will the club stumble and return to the bottom of the league? Under the current ownership the team has had a winning record 3 out of the 4 seasons, and that one losing season was the first year of a rebuild. Ownership was quoted, "We are very happy with how far we have come as a organization, but we know we can be better. Our goal is to be the best and we always are trying to make the team better with each move that we make. We were sad to see Atkins, Burt, Byrne, and Romero leave but it was time for them to move on. Hopefully some of our young arms are ready to make the jump and either Rivera or Wall will start hitting like we are expecting." The Raptors enter 2036 with the highest ranking they have had since the ranking were in place at 372 and a rating of 87.36. The fan base is hoping for another winning season and hopefully a championship around the corner.

As the 2034 season is just around the corner, the management of the Raptors were in a good mood. Manager Daniel was in high spirits as spring training is coming to a close soon. "We have a plan in place and we are entering the second year of it. Last season had many highs and lows. The bats were alive, but at times the bullpen was dead on arrival," Daniel said. Many feel that if the bullpen performs better and the bats perform about the same then their is a good chance the team will improve on the 84 win season.

Feb 19 2032: Elkhart enters a New League with New Hope. - by oreohowell on May 11th, 2017
Elkhart enters the new season with hope for the future. Management felt that the team was getting too old to compete but surprising many fans the group of salt old dogs made a final run for the league championship. After losing the championship series changes needed to be made to the team in the form of youth. With the retirement of many of the core group and a minor system that was depleted, the wavier wire and free agents was used to great effect. Management expressed that many of the staff are filled with hope, as many new faces are joining the organization. Only time will tell if this strategy will pay off or if it will be disaster.
