March 16th, 2023 - Cuba crushes the Canadian Dream!
Canada had managed an easy path of Jamaica, Brazil, Panama and Great Britain – all the way to the finals. They were up two games to one in the finals versus Cuba. In game four, they were crushed by the Cubans 11-3. However, Canada was resilient and came back in the final game – taking a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the 9th. Mark Allan took the mound for the Canucks, but proceeded to walk a batter than then give up back-to-back homers to Federico Morales and Javier Rosa! Game tied and into extra innings. The game remained deadlocked until the bottom of the 12th, when Guillermo Heredia earned his nickname of “Godzilla” hitting a walk off home run to win the Classic for Cuba! Perhaps the most exciting World Classic final ever – congratulations to Cuba on the title!

March 23rd, 2023 - Lawrence Flies to New Heights - Lawrence Hawks
The champagne was flowing in Lawrence well into the offseason as the Hawks, after tying the franchise best performance of 3rd place in League IV the last two seasons, survived the beat'em up IV.2 East schedule and won promotion by way of superior run differential.
At the end of season awards ceremony, Owner Jayhawker had this to say after clinching the first ever trip to League III: "To the fans, you have the been the lifeblood of this organization since moving to Lawrence. When I first joined, I said we aspired to be the envy of all other franchises. It's a nice ending to the season but this only the first chapter; we now have to keep climbing into uncharted territory. Coach Bings & this group of guys are hungry for more!" - Jayhawker
