MacPherson Named MVP in High Scoring All-Star Match

St. Pete’s ace Jose Soto was the AEL’s starting pitcher for the All-Star Game

Norfolk Sharks catcher Earl MacPherson was named the game MVP, and first-time selection Nick Rangel of the California Tidals got the win, in a high-scoring All-Star contest between the visiting Lake League and the hosting American Eagle League tonight in Calgary.

The AEL side, which were the hosts this year, won the game 12-10, as some of the top pitchers in both leagues were rung up for plenty of hits, and fans were treated to some incredible baseball. Continue reading “MacPherson Named MVP in High Scoring All-Star Match”

Chicago on Cusp of Golden Opportunity

The Chicago Pit Bulls may be on the brink of an amazing opportunity to get a head start in a rebuild, judging by a glance at their 2018 roster and seemingly dismal season.

The storied franchise, one of the original 1989 clubs, which won the first Bull Cup Championship in 1991, has struggled to find success lately, despite producing two Hall of Fame players and making 11 playoff appearances since 1995. Continue reading “Chicago on Cusp of Golden Opportunity”

Florida Rookie League Playoff Teams Set

The FRL playoff matchups are set as the season came to a close yesterday. The teams advancing to the postseason include the Miami Motorheads (Detroit) who will face the Daytona Beach Danger (Denver), the Ft. Lauderdale Nomads (Toronto), who are up against the Key largo Oxen (Ohio), the Clearwater Sluggers (Louisville) who will face the Ft Myers Deputies (Dallas), and finally the Tallahassee Storm (Miami) who will square off with the Lakeland Salts (Seattle).

The Deputies held the best record through the FRL season, going 56-28 (.667), but were the top team in their division, the GCL’s Chris Felix Division, at the end of the second half of the season, going 29-13(.690) to tie the Storm, who led the Iron Arm Division.

Nevada Speed to the Top of Power Rankings

The Nevada Speeders have pulled ahead of the pack to take the top of the weekly team power rankings for Week 9, after taking the first three against their former AEL rivals, the Chicago Pit Bulls, in the interleague home-and-home series that marked the main event for all teams this past week.

The fourth and final game proceeds tonight for Nevada against Chicago, and then the league breaks until Thursday’s All-Star Game in Calgary. Continue reading “Nevada Speed to the Top of Power Rankings”

Testy Inferno-Oxen Rematch Leads to Brawl, Suspensions

In what was already billed to be a series that brings back memories of the 2016 Bull Cup, the Ohio Oxen rolled into Calgary to play the Calgary Inferno in the second half of a home-and-home series, a brawl erupted that cleared the benches tonight, and suspensions have been announced by the Commissioner.

The Inferno took the first two games, which were in Ohio, and then came home to open the last two games. Ohio was ahead for the first time since the first inning of game 1 of the series, after a Brad Bogus solo shot in the 2nd inning was followed up by one from Corny Maise in the 4th. Continue reading “Testy Inferno-Oxen Rematch Leads to Brawl, Suspensions”

Sluggers, Inferno in Player Swap

The Calgary Inferno and the Louisville Sluggers both announced they have agreed on a four-player swap that is expected to solidify the Inferno bullpen for the second half, and improve the speed and defense of the Sluggers prospect pool.

The Sluggers sent veteran RHP David Johnson to Calgary, where his 2.89 ERA, and strong performance against right-handed batters will be useful for the Inferno, who currently rank 9th in the AEL for bullpen ERA. Calgary gave up three minor league prospects in return. Continue reading “Sluggers, Inferno in Player Swap”
