NPBL News: The Offseason Begins
Wednesday, November 11th, 2082
It's time to put another NPBL season in the ledger. General managers must make key personnel and financial decisions during the offseason. A lot will be happening -- trades or player signings could send shock waves throughout the league. Hirings, firings and retirings will happen over the next several months. But most important, general managers must choose a direction and steer their teams as well as they can toward a championship berth next season.

Hardball Scholar: Hummer aiming for PhD
Wednesday, November 11th, 2082
In recent years, plenty of celebrities have shown their intellectual sides by earning degrees in subjects as diverse as quantum physics and English literature.

Now, a prominent former baseball player is joining them: former great James Hummer has announced he's entering a PhD program at Indiana University.

While most ex-ballplayers start businesses, open restaurants, or stay in the game as coaches or analysts, Hummer says he relishes the chance to continue his education.

"I always tried to read and keep up on things while I was playing," he said. "But since I retired, I've really been able to devote myself to learning, and this seemed like the next logical step."

And while it might seem like his classmates would have a hard time playing it cool while sitting in a classroom with a superstar athlete, Hummer says he's the nervous one.

"A lot of these kids are coming right from getting their undergrad degrees, or from seriously intellectual jobs," he said. "I've got a lot more rust to shake off."
Wisconsin Wins National Cup Series Crown
Monday, November 9th, 2082
It was a hard-fought battle for both teams to make it this far. But as the saying goes, "to the victors go the spoils." For the victorious Wisconsin Lumberjacks, that meant the NPBL National Cup Series trophy.

The Lumberjacks took a 3-2 victory over the Massachusetts Patriots at Northern Lights Park, winning their 7th championship after taking the series 4-1.

"We've got grit," said Lumberjacks right fielder Enrique Lombos, who was named MVP of the series. "We know how to win when we have to."

The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the Great Explorers League North and a 87-75 record.
