FFL Batting Title Goes to Maryland's Rangel
Friday, October 1st, 2088
He may only be 24 years old, but Fernando Rangel has already established himself as an elite National Pastime Baseball League player.

The Maryland Admirals star posted a .351 batting average this year, which won him the Founding Fathers League batting crown.

"I can't even believe it, to be honest," he told Baseball News Network.

His fantastic campaign consisted of 175 hits, 32 doubles, 6 triples and 2 home runs for the year. In 119 games Rangel added 46 RBIs and scored 80 runs.
Dan White Paces GEL with .315 Average
Friday, October 1st, 2088
Batting titles are tough to come by. It takes a lot of talent, hard work, consistency, few slumps, good health and a little luck.

Dan White of the Hawaii Kula Sox put it all together this year and led the Great Explorers League with a .315 batting average (208-for-661).

The Kula Sox second baseman played in 158 games, ending the season with 42 doubles, 12 triples, 2 home runs, 96 runs and 44 runs batted in.

"When you work hard, good things happen," White explained to reporters after winning the coveted award. "Slumps happen to everyone, but you won't break out of one without hard work. I think that's one of the prime reasons for my success this season."
Illinois Narrowly Wins Great Explorers League Central
Friday, October 1st, 2088
Fans of the Illinois Jethawks were taken on an emotional roller coaster this season. But the ride has a happy ending, as the team has captured the Great Explorers League Central crown.

"Our true fans stuck with us all year and knew we'd get this division title. It wasn't easy, but that just makes it all the more worthwhile," said starting pitcher Donald Church, of his franchise's 26th division title.

With a 97-66 record, the Jethawks will be heading into the playoffs with momentum.

"I think grabbing this division title gives us a big boost and some great motivation going into the postseason," Church said.
