    Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2535 Postseason

    2535 Postseason League Divisional Series The Callisto Cubs started out hot by winning the first two games, but the Mars Warriors took them all the way to Game 5, winning three straight games to erase a 0-2 deficit in a massive upset. The no. 2 Luna Apollos picked the Ceres Belters apart by winning the series 3 games to 1. The Europa Mastodons rumbled through the canyons of Valles Mariners, defeating the Canyons 3 games to 1. In a see-saw affair between the Kennedy Rockets and the Venus Reign, the Rockets won the last two games to advance to the CLCS. League Championship Series: ALCS – With the Cubs out of the playoffs, the Luna Apollos thought they’d have it easy. They were wrong, as the Mars Warriors took them all the way to Game 7. The Apollos prevailed, defeating the Warriors 6-3 at the Lunardome to advance to the Galactic Series. CLCS – After losing the first two games to the Europa Mastodons, the Kennedy Rockets rode the hot bat of 4-time MVP Bobby Keenan to win four straight games to take the series, 4 games to 2. Note: The first Galactic Series where both teams are from the Moon! Galactic Series Game 1: In one of the longest Galactic Series game ever, the 19-inning affair became an instant classic. In the top of the 19th inning, the Kennedy Rockets scored a run to get ahead. But the Luna Apollos responded in the bottom of the 19th inning with a walk-off sacrifice fly from Jorge Chavez to win the game, 4-3. Game 2: Kennedy second baseman Gabe Louis produced all the offense the Rockets would need today in the club's 8-1 win over the Luna Apollos. Louis was 2 for 4 with 2 home runs. He drove in 4 runs and scored twice and was named player of the game, while Kennedy moved into a tie in the Galactic Series. The Rockets and Apollos are now even at 1-1 in the best-of-7 series. Game 3: Leave it to the veteran. The Kennedy Rockets got a great start from 35-year-old left-hander Zi-jun Wang, who earned player of the game honors today as Kennedy won the contest 5-3 at Kennedy Field. Wang threw 7 innings of 4-hit ball in the win, which allowed the Kennedy to grab a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series. Game 4: There must be something in the water on the Moon that makes the veteran perform at a higher level. The Luna Apollos got a great start from 36-year-old right-hander Jared Seiler, who earned player of the game honors today as Luna won the contest 7-3 at Kennedy Field. Seiler tossed 5 solid innings of 4-hit ball in the win, which knotted the best-of-7 series at 2-2. Game 5: An all-important Game 5 of the Galactic Series went into extra innings at Kennedy Field, with the Luna Apollos eventually emerging on top. Luna has Tim Channel to thank, after the designated hitter went 3 for 6 with a home run and 2 singles. He scored 2 times and drove in 2 in the 6-5 victory. John Gordon also hit a go-ahead homer in the top of the 12th inning. The Apollos are now one game away from the Round 4, holding a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 series. Game 6: The Kennedy Rockets and the Luna Apollos will take the Galactic Series to a decisive 7th game. In a must-win situation today, the Rockets beat the Apollos 8-4 at Lunardome to force the series into what will essentially be a one-game playoff. Kennedy first baseman Matt D'Ariano was named player of the game in the win after he slugged 2 home runs. He drove in 4 runs and scored twice. Game 7: The Kennedy Rockets ignited a huge celebration as they beat the Luna Apollos 3-0 in Game 7 to win the Galactic Series. Kennedy won the series 4-3, capturing the title for the 1st time. Zi-jun Wang had a game for the ages, throwing 8 1/3 shutout innings with nine strikeouts. He allowed just 2 runs over 15 1/3 innings in the series. "We stepped it up at the right time, and now we're the champs," said Kennedy manager John Torbeck. "It's a great feeling." The champs finished the regular season 88-74 and claimed second place in the Cosmo League Sputnik. In the jubilant clubhouse after the decisive game, series MVP and center fielder Bobby Keenan said the Rockets have "great fans and they deserve this." "I am so happy for our city right now," he said. “And the people of the Moon too. They got a fantastic series that went all the way to Game 7.” Game-by-Game Results G1 – Apollos 4, Rockets 3 G2 – Rockets 8, Apollos 1 G3 – Rockets 5, Apollos 3 G4 – Apollos 7, Rockets 3 G5 – Apollos 6, Rockets 5 G6 – Rockets 8, Apollos 4 G7 – Rockets 3, Apollos 0 Past Galactic Series 2535 – Kennedy over Luna, 4-3 2534 – Venus S. over Valles Marineris, 4-1 2533 – Earth over Valles Mariners, 4-1 2532 – Callisto over Valles Marineris, 4-0 2531 – Earth over Venus R., 4-3 2530 – Canyons over Earth, 4-3 2529 – Venus S. over Venus R., 4-2 2528 – Earth over Venus R., 4-2 2527 – Luna over Ganymede, 4-3 2526 – Earth over Mendez, 4-1 2525 – Earth over Kennedy, 4-2 2524 – Venus S. over Venus R., 4-2 2523 – Earth over Venus R., 4-2 2522 – Venus R. over Venus S., 4-2 2521 – Venus R. over Ceres, 4-3 2520 – Ganymede over Mercury, 4-3 2519 – Earth over Jupiter, 4-2 2518 – Mercury over Venus R., 4-1 2517 – Jupiter over Venus S., 4-3 2516 – Mars over Mendez, 4-2 2515 – Ceres over Jupiter, 4-3 2514 – Luna over Mendez, 4-3 2513 – Mercury over Mendez, 4-3 2512 – Mendez over Luna, 4-1 2511 – Ceres over Luna, 4-3 2510 – Luna over Earth, 4-3 2509 – Luna over Mars, 4-1 2508 – Mars over Luna, 4-2 2507 – Luna over Mars, 4-3 2506 – Mars over Earth, 4-2 2505 – Mars over Earth, 4-1 2504 – Mars over Mercury, 4-1 2503 – Earth over Mercury, 4-1 2502 – Earth over Mercury, 4-0 2501 – Earth over Mercury, 4-2 2500 – Earth over Mercury, 4-2

    2535 Season Divisional Quick Recaps AL Enterprise Division: In an incredible underdog story, the Luna Apollos leaped from a last-place finish in 2534 to a division title in 2535, clinching their first divisional title since 2512, a 23-year drought. It was a neck-to-neck race for 2nd place in the division and the 2nd Wild Card spot between the Mars Warriors and the Earth Astronauts. The Warriors defeated the Astronauts in a one-game playoff, 10-3, with an eight-run inning. Defending SLB Champions Venus Sparrows finished 4th in the division. The Mets finished last in the division with an identical record from last season. AL Endeavour Division: As expected, the Callisto Cubs blew everybody away with an SLB-record 117 wins. Four of their starting pitchers had 5+ WAR, and centerfielder Sean Watkins set an SLB record with 13.7 WAR. Catcher Joel Heuer also racked up 11.6 WAR, good for third all-time. The Ceres Belters returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2532. The rebuilding Jupiter Kings has improved their record every year since 2531, building up from 61 wins to 74. The two recent expansion teams, the Io Vulcans and Ursula Majors, are still finding their footing. CL Sputnik Division: Leading the league in stolen bases with 226 swipes, the Venus Reign sped toward their first divisional title since 2531. The steady Kennedy Rockets finished with 88 wins for the second straight year and will be in the playoffs for the third straight year. For the first time since 2527, the Valles Marineris Canyons will not be a divisional winner, but they still managed to sneak in with the 2nd Wild Card spot. The Mendez Islanders improved by 10 wins by winning 80 games this season. With yet another losing season and a last-place finish, the PUA Emperors will be relocating to the Lagrange Islands. The most likely destination will be Pamoja, the third largest establishment in the SUN. CL Soyuz Division: The Europa Mastodons clinched their first divisional title in franchise history. The young Neptune Mariners finished in 2nd place with 79 wins, one more than last season. The Titan Scorpions and the Ganymede Giants, both who made the playoffs last year, finished 3rd and 4th respectively. The second-year Pluto Hounds are still finding their footing in the Soyuz Division with a last-place finish.

    Hey, you never know! Maybe they'll save themselves and get a winning season! Or someday down the road they could get the team back, a la Washington Senators/Nationals. According to wiki: In 1960, Major League Baseball granted the city of Minneapolis an expansion team. Washington owner Calvin Griffith, Clark's nephew and adopted son, requested that he be allowed to move his team to Minneapolis-St. Paul and instead give Washington the expansion team. Upon league approval, the team moved to Minnesota after the 1960 season, setting up shop in Metropolitan Stadium, while Washington fielded a brand new "Washington Senators" (which later became the Texas Rangers prior to the 1972 season). And then the Washington National moved in during the 2005 season.

    Right now every planet in the SUN has a team, so it's time to start adding a second (or third or fourth!) teams to a few certain high-populated areas in the inner system (from Mercury to Mars). I'll be making a comprehensive list of cities when the time comes.
  7. RoughRiders99

    Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2535 Postseason

    I absolutely agree with you. Harmony One WILL get a team at some point. either if it's a relocation or an expansion down the road. The Lagrange Islands are large enough to have multiple teams for sure.

    Yes, you are right about Earth being the most populous place in the SUN. I've toyed with the idea of moving the team to Moscow and calling them the Moscow Cosmonauts, but that might be a little too on the nose with the Astronauts, haha. I do have plans on Earth having a lot more expansion teams in the future. I'm toying with the idea of some kind of a league merger, but I have no immediate plans for it. It's just an idea rattling around in my head right now. The Emperors just want to get out of PUA's shadow for a little bit. I do hope that this league somehow reaches 30 teams. That's my next goal for this project. It'll take time though. EDIT: And you, my friend, just sparked an idea with the Guardians.

PUA Emperors News The PUA Emperors announced that if they have another losing season AND finish last in their division, they will relocate to the Lagrange Islands for the 2536 season. The two Lagrange Islands candidates are: Pamoja – primarily shipyard and spaceport with an open immigration policy, welcoming people from all walk of life, with a population of at least 1.3 million, good for third largest establishment in the Space United Nations (SUN) behind Lake Armstrong and Kennedy on Luna. The word "pamoja" means together in Swahili. Harmony One – The capital City of the SUN and a major hub for trade and diplomatic relations. Its population is a little over 490,000, good for 10th largest establishment in the SUN. The economy is booming there due to the upper-class people that pass through there. The league is also accepting potential ideas for team branding should the Emperors relocate.

    I'd say that both is a great storyline on their own! The Sparrows won only their third title in franchise history on a Cinderella run as the no. 4 seeded team, but the Canyons are doing something that's quite special, both good and bad. At least they won a title in 2530. They remind me a lot of the Braves' dynasty in the 90s. They won all of these division titles, but only has one World Series title to show for it.

    2534 Postseason League Divisional Series • The 84-win team Sparrows pulled off an upset over the heavily favored 109-win team Cubs by winning the series 3 games to 1. Ryan Exum batted .526 for the Sparrows. • The Warriors cruised to the ALCS by sweeping the Astronauts in three games. Mars lefty Tony Crosley tossed a nine-inning shutout in Game 2. • Between the Canyons and the Giants, the home team won all of their games. Fortunately the Canyons had the advantage, as they won the series, 3 games to 2. Worth noting – facing elimination, the Giants hit a pinch-hit, walk-off GRAND SLAM in the bottom of the ninth to win Game 3, 6-5. Unfortunately, they couldn’t carry the momentum. • The Rockets launched all of their hitters and swept the Scorpions in three games, outscoring them 30-14. League Championship Series • ALCS – The No. 4 Sparrows continued their underdog story by advancing past the Warriors by winning four games in five games. Second baseman Nobuhisa Shimokawa, who signed a $151.2 million contract, paced the Sparrows with 8 hits in 20 at-bats. • CLCS – After struggling a little bit in the CLDS, the Canyons rebounded and propelled themselves to their third straight Galactic Series appearance by defeating the Rockets, 4 games to 1. Galactic Series The text below are copied from the OOTP Postgame Stories Game 1: The Venus Sparrows started the Galactic Series in style today, winning on the road against the Valles Marineris Canyons at Valley Stadium by a score of 6-1 to take an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series. Sparrows right-hander Ryan Dennis was named player of the game after he threw 7 innings of 6-hit ball. Game 2: With center fielder Eduardo Fernandez leading the charge, the Venus Sparrows got past the Valles Marineris Canyons, 6-2, in extra innings in Game 2 of the Galactic Series today. Fernandez was 3-5 with a home run and 2 singles. He drove in 3 runs and scored once at Valley Stadium as Venus managed to take to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series. Game 3: The Venus Sparrows moved to within one game of winning the Galactic Series today, downing the visiting Valles Marineris Canyons at Statue Field by a score of 5-4. Sparrows left fielder Danny Diaz was named player of the game after he went 2 for 4 with a home run, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once. The win gives the Sparrows a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-7 Galactic Series. Game 4: On the verge of being swept and facing a red-hot Venus Sparrows team, the Valles Marineris Canyons had a tough assignment. Shoitsu Fujita delivered. The Canyons designated hitter was unstoppable for the visitors, as he was 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 singles, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 2 in guiding his club to its first victory of the series, 10-8. Fujita, 25, was named player of the game for his efforts. The win means Valles Marineris now trails 3-1 in the best-of-7 series. Game 5: The Venus Sparrows are champions, today and forever. The Sparrows topped the Valles Marineris Canyons 4-2 at Statue Field today to claim the Galactic Series crown in a massive upset. "Nobody can take this away from us, not ever," said series MVP and first baseman Cesar Aguilar after his club had sealed the victory. "We worked hard and we accomplished our goal." The atmosphere was electric as the newly-crowned champs stormed the field at the conclusion of the game. Fans cheered, gloves flew in the air, high fives and hugs were the order of the day. "From day one of spring training, I could see it in their eyes," said Venus manager Jake Cragen. "The players had that look of intensity, of hunger, of a desire to accomplish something great, and today they did that. They're champions of the world." The Sparrows took the series 4-1. It is their third Galactic Series title in franchise history, and the first since 2529. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a third-place finish in the Astro League Enterprise and an 84-78 record.

    Awesome! Then I'll be a huge supporter of Grand Marais! A little disappointed that Lutsen won't have a team, but I guess it's a little too small. By the way, I love the backstory behind Ely's name about the Black Bears. And it's nice to know that I do have a follower over in the Solar League! I do have a question about this league: Where are all of the teams playing? I know some of the larger cities have their own rinks, but what about some of the super small towns? Do they have rinks too or are they playing pond hockey? Or am I just underestimating Minnesota's love for hockey?
