Oct 22 2052: #6,000 - by PrivateSnowflake on November 29th, 2021

The final out of the 2052 regular season also marked my 6,001st game (regular season, Cup, Playoffs) as owner of the Bloomington franchise. When asked for comment, my wife said, "What are you talking about?".


Aug 31 2052: Conte alone in 2nd - by PrivateSnowflake on November 16th, 2021

Aug. 23, 2052 Bloomington, IN: In a dominating complete game performance in front of 40,870 Thunder faithful, five time All-Star and 2044 Cy Young Award winner Craig Conte moved into sole possession of second place on the all-time Thunder franchise wins list. The future Hall of Fame southpaw is enjoying one of his best years at age 34 and is two wins away from matching his career high for a season.


Oct 22 2051: 5,000 - by PrivateSnowflake on September 13th, 2021

Sept. 19, 2051 Bloomington, IN.: On a rainy September evening and with 39,990 Thunder faithful braving the elements, Girardo Hinojosa lifted a game-winning, walk-off home run to right field, capping a dramatic 10-9 win over visiting Birmingham which gave the Bloomington franchise, including playoff and Cup games, win number 5,000.


Jul 21 2049: Cesar Sacked - by PrivateSnowflake on March 19th, 2021

Bloomington, IN.: The Winds of Fate that blew Cesar Reyna into Bloomington just last mid-season have turned ice-cold and swept the now former skipper out of town.

Just 9 months after turning in a 73-32 record and leading the Thunder to the Legends Championship, Reyna was let go after posting a 33-52 first-half performance.

Gregg Barone has been brought in to replace Reyna.
