AFBL officials are excited to announce that they have finally filled their last vacancy as they welcome Nick Holliday as the new Alabama Yellowhammers GM. Nick will have a challenge ahead of him but he sounds like he is ready for it. Good luck to him and Alabama!
AFBL has an opening with the Alabama Yellowhammers franchise. They need some attention as they are in a rebuild as they look for a new GM to take the reigns.
The 2052 Regular Season is halfway over with 81 games completed and 1 more sim remaining before the All-Star Game break. The division and wildcard races are starting to take shape. There has been several trades already made as teams look to set themselves apart of the others.
The Ontario Blue Pirates have won their first Federation Cup Series as the 2051 AFBL Champs! Congrats to Jon on the title!
We have now finished two months of the season and the Blue Pirates are (36-20) in first 6 games up on the Twin Towers. We talked about how this year isn’t going to be easy and after the month of May New York put up, going 18-8 just better then Ontario’s 18-9 has put them in a great spot leading the Wild card by 1. New Jersey has stayed around with the PL’s leading HR hitter. Pennsylvania has one of the best Pitchers in the PL so they are still around as well. Maryland has faded and won’t really factor Read More
Sim 1 4-4 to start the season. We are hitting the crap out of the ball but it all apparently landed in the hands of our pitchers because that’s what they threw. NM leading the FL with 22 stolen bases. That’s new. Only caught twice. Hope this keeps up. AAA Oklahoma City had a crazy first week. 7-1, 124 hits, 51 for extra bases. Scored 79 and allowed 29. Sim 2 5-1. Pitching calmed down, allowing 12 runs over the six games. Leading the division by two. Going to see how quickly and how well Sean Butler learns 1B while he’s Read More
The first month of the AFBL is done and the Blue Pirates (16-10) are in a familiar Position 1st place, with the team finishing 2nd in 2046 & winning the Division last 3 years this is good start. The road back to the Finals will not be so easy, old Foe New Jersey is only 1 game back so far, they might not be fully on the charge yet but they will not make it easy. The Railroaders have been out of the playoffs for 10 years! they look much tougher then last season. New York was so close to Read More
