The Hamilton Mounties caught lightning in a bottle the last month of the season. They took the GLBL by storm as they surged their way to the Canadian Wild Card and defied what appeared to be a non-postseason year.
Once they caught fire, the flame burned even brighter as they defeated favored Owen Sound Waveriders in four games. If you were not convinced by thenm you only had to watch the Championship Series against the 89-55 Chicago Architects. The Mounties just could not be stopped as they dispensed with the other favored team in six games.

The Traverse City Bears were the last team standing in 2040, doing it the hard way as the Wild Card. A team that was good enough to take down the favorite Chicago Architects was not going to be stopped by the Canadian Wild Card entry, the Hamilton Mounties (79-65). Just 74-70 in the regular season the Bears found a way to bring it all together come playoff time.

By the time the 2039 season ended, the city of Chicago had captured its league-leading seventh championship, beating the Caribou in four of six games.
The Caribou provided plenty of drama themselves this season. Predicted to finish dead last in Canada, they started hot (49-28 over the first three months) before fading down the stretch (28-39). They had done enough early to keep themselves in the Wild Card hunt and swept Hamilton to end the season and clinch their playoff berth.

Left fielder John Davis, an All-Star in eight of his nine seasons with the Comets between 2029-37, returned to Kingston with the ‘September’ call-up crew. After signing with Windsor in 2038, Davis spent time at Triple-A Leamington, putting up decent numbers but never getting any playing time in the majors.

After a pair of second place finishes last season between the division and the GLBL championships, this year’s Architects had designs on heading back to the Championship series with something to prove. They would need all seven games and five extra innings in the GLBL Championships to do it.

At long last, the fans in Hamilton again have a champion. The Mounties have won the 2035 GLBL Championship, dispatching last year’s champs, the Chicago Architects, in six games.
The deciding game, won by Hamilton by the decisive score of 8-1, was anomalous in a hard-fought series rife with lead changes and late-inning comebacks.

With just four outs remaining in their season, the Architects were down 0-1 with the bases loaded. What looked like their best chance for scoring some runs had passed when the eventual Series and USA MVP, Daniel Huffman, had struck out as the second batter sent down that inning. It came down to David Mowry. If the Mounties could get him out, they would stand a very good chance of demolishing the Architects’ plans to cap off their historic regular season with a Championship.

What is it like to see a team win 18 in a row? What are the odds that a very good team could achieve that feat in a well-balanced league? To further accentuate the oddity of it all, how likely is it that a team with a record of 27-31 just prior to the streak would be the team to achieve it?
Whatever the odds, the Milwaukee Eagles defied them to win 18 straight in the middle of the 2034 season. The hot streak propelled the Eagles into second place, yet still trailing the Chicago Architects by 10 games after their three game losing streak on the heels of the big 18.
