GENERAL MANAGERS MEETINGS for the Winter Months.
It’s not a mandatory thing, but it is kind of fun to be online and talk trade with 20+ General Managers of the Mid-West Baseball League. We need to get everyone signed in with a Facebook account as we will be using Facebook chat for Draft Day 2016.
We always appreciate it when we get a lot of Community activity from the General Managers, much of the off-season wheeling & dealing is usually done at this time.
It’s a precursor to Draft Day to make sure everyone can get into the CHAT Room.
The Commissioner Office will arrive in the CHAT room around 8:50 PM ET on the dates listed below, and General Managers can come and go as they please. The Meetings usually last about one hour maybe two.
The Three Dates are as follows:
MWBL DRAFT DAY is Scheduled for Saturday February 20th, 2016 – 10:30 AM ET.
SOUTHWEST DETROIT – On Opening Day, April 12, 2016, look for another franchise relocated to the Detroit area. This one will play games in the Mexican Village area of Southwest Detroit.
Mid-West Baseball League announced Thursday that franchise formerly known as the Elyria Indians, (& Chiefs) will be moving to the Southwest area of Detroit & become the Southwest Detroit Fighting Chihuahuas.
The city was to celebrate the news Thursday afternoon with a news conference featuring people associated with the Indians he official said.
“I think we’ll be in a position where we can have a celebration come opening day. The city deserves more & bringing the Chihuahua’s home to the city, especially the Southwest portion of the city is an exciting new time for all of us” said General Manager Brian “Miz” Mazurek.
A crucial hurdle was cleared this week when, according to city officials, baseball reached an understanding with Detroit Crime, Motor City Muscle franchises who previously objected to having a team relocate within the city of Detroit. But with the new Corktown Cycle franchise within the city boundaries the Crime & Muscle gave up some of their territorial rights. However this could become a very bitter turf war for crowds & merchandising rights. Continue reading

Welcome to the 2015 MWBL series which pits the four-time American League Champion & (and defending World Series Champion) Hollywood Werewolves vs the National League Champion (& eight-time World Series) Tempe Tempers.
They are facing each other for the 3rd time in the World Series. Hollywood won the series last year & Tempe won the first match up back in 2005. Tempe has an incredible pen and a very deep bench, but they lack an overall ace. Hollywood on the other hand has two bonafide #1 Aces, a deep pen, but a relatively weak bench.
Hollywood made surprisingly quick work of the Chicago Mobsters in the ALCS and entered the World Series completely rested. Tempe rallied late against the Clovis Wheat Kings in game seven of the NLCS so they needed to expand their pen to eight relievers for the World Series.
This year’s outcome is a tossup according to the Jarl Jackson’s 2015 World Series Preview, so settle in as we bring you the details & highlights. games.
