|Saturday, September 4th, 2032: LBSQ Double A News: The Offseason Begins|
The LBSQ Double A offseason is like a river. It ebbs and flows toward a sea of uncertainty. The next few months, though, are where a superior general manager really makes his mark: contract negotiation, trade talk, club assessments, scouting, minor league evaluation and more. Now that the 2032 playoffs are in the books, it's time for GMs and their staff to get down to the business of creating next year's version of their team.

|Saturday, August 21st, 2032: Haley 5-6 for Minneapolis|
5 hits in a game has always been a magic number in baseball. Only a handful of players will do that. Get 5 hits in a game and you get your moment of glory...your 5 minutes of fame...you get your name in the record book.
In the River Bandits 15-8 win over Cincinnati, Billy Haley was red-hot today, scorching them for hit after hit at Ballpark of Minneapolis.
"To hit the ball consistently well, you have to relax. I was relaxed for the first four hits, but I must admit, I got too much adrenaline going when I realized that this was a special once-in-a-lifetime chance for the record book. On the last hit, I was ready to swing at anything close, I was that excited. That's why my third base coach called time and told me, 'Calm down and wait for a good pitch.' That got me back on track and I nailed the first one in the strike zone."
On his record-setting day Haley delivered 5 hits in 6 at-bats, a day he will not soon forget.
B. Haley struck out in the 2nd, hit an RBI single in the 3rd, singled in the 6th, tripled in the 7th, hit a two-run single in the 8th and singled in the 9th.
This season Haley is batting .276 with 7 home runs.
