Nov 01 2063: Legend - by Jobywan on March 27th, 2024

Eighteen seasons ago, Jobywan got off a plane in Hawaii and asked himself, "What have a I done?"

An LL6 club in the shadow of an active volcano with little support and little hope-- the faint smell of sulfur lingering in the air. And yet the build began, and so did the climb. He knew it would be hard to sell a dream to top Free Agents, so focused on the draft and built a home-grown core.

With Legends in sight this year, he pulled out all the stops and inserted half-a dozen prime veterans into his homebuilt squad, and it all came together.

Legends, here we come.


Oct 30 2061: Most Competitive League Ever? - by Jobywan on October 25th, 2023

After the dust settled, Season 2061, II.2 was definitely the most explosive division in recent BB history. On the very last series of regular season play, FIVE teams had a shot at promotion. World class club Texarkana was left holding the short straw and with an 87-win season, was forced to demote.

Brentwood finished strong in first and goes into the playoffs as the clear favorites. Makakilo Eruption's president Jobywan, after facing vicious and slanderous attacks on the public forums for his home-grown approach to team building, was vindicated yet again.

With a strong 2nd place finish and 89-win season, this squad would easily have been promoted to the Legends League in most other divisions.

"Let them squawk", stated Jobywan, "We've proven what we can do by caring for our own right here."






Nov 02 2060: Makakilo ERUPTS! - by Jobywan on August 9th, 2023

It took five seasons, but Makakilo put together a fantastic 98-win season this year, advancing their home-grown squad to LL2.

Rich Mueller was an inspiration in the playoffs, hitting .565 with an OPS of 1.44. The Sunrise showed a lot of heart, but it was over in 6 games. Can this surprise farm-league system continue to impress?


Aug 31 2058: Makakilo's Home Grown Squad Goes to the Cup Finals And ... - by Jobywan on February 20th, 2023

After squeaking out on 11-inning win in game 1, the boys just didn't have anything left. The bats went cold and anything that could go wrong (2 hit batters in the final game Mr. Dimas?)... did go wrong.

Hat's off to Lakeland with a dominant cup run this year. The Eruption still has promotion hopes, sitting just one game behind Rockford for the III.4 West title.


Nov 02 2055: What A Series! - by Jobywan on July 20th, 2022

In the 13th inning of game 7, Miguel Rivas smashed a three-run-homer to clinch the series. Makakilo's home-grown project continues to astound as they manage a third promotion in four seasons.

Will LL3 slow them down?
