Aug 09 2047: Busy month for the Falcons - by Ducksnort Single on October 21st, 2020
Since July 19th Pharr's owner, Ducksnort, has made 12 roster moves. This includes 1 draft pick (20 yr old Claude LeBlanc), 3 players released (OF prospects Meza & Simpson) and 1 veteran (30 yr old C Cliff McGee). Ducksnort said in a press release, "After falling to 5 games below 1st place Marion, we realized we needed to improve at a few positions, especially the left side of the IF. With our starting SS & 3b (Bert Close & Hisashi Takagi) seriously underperforming we had to make some changes. We called up Tomas Pena from AAA to play short and signed 29 yr old Gonzalo Jasso to play 3b. We also acquired 3 other players (veteran Tobias Jung & prospects Cooper & Schell) to bolster our bench and minor league prospects." Only time will tell if all this will pay off or not. currently the Falcons have climbed to 3 games out of 1st.

May 31 2032: Pharr says goodbye to Mueller and hello to new owner - by fatpen on June 9th, 2017
On game date May 29 Pharr welcomed a new owner to help turn around their season around. Fatpen had this to say about his new job," our team has struggled a lot this season, besides a very talented roster. We made some great plays but weren't consistent. As the new proud owner of Pharr, I believe that if we can rally around each other and really push ourselves, we can make this a legendary year for the Pharr Falcons!" The powerful words have not seemed to sink in yet, as the falcons sit at the bottom of their division with a depressing 17-26 record. But with over 100 games left in the season, anything can happen!#falconPride!
Oct 24 2030: Pharr bids farewell to veteran slugger Mueller - by Mesh77 on February 14th, 2017
After twelve seasons in Pharr and team records in at-bats, hits, doubles and runs scored, not to mention being second in career home runs and RBI, veteran second baseman Ryan Mueller announced his retirement after the Falcons last home game of the 2030 season.
"It's definitely emotional," said the veteran slugger, a seven-time All-Star, three-time All-League and one-time gold glove winner. "I hoped to just get a shot at the bigs, and to have played this long for such a great organisation as the Falcons has been a huge honor. I'm going home to California to grow oranges and lemons, but part of me will always belong to Texas."
Mueller becomes the sixth member of the Falcons Hall of Fame, and - like the others - had his #23 shirt retired by the ballclub.
