The 2042 season featured a record-tying hit streak, a perfect game, a pitching triple crown, exciting races in both leagues, a tie-breaking game 145, and several tense playoff series. In the end, a familiar name had won the Championship: the Chicago Architects. The Architects made the playoffs for the 20th time in 28 years and won their eighth Championships.
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.Continue reading Mounties Streak to Title #3
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.Continue reading Bears are Champs
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.

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.Continue reading Architects Again!
In 2038, the Toronto Maples survived a tough Canadian campaign, upset first-place Owen Sound in the playoffs, and dispatched a Cinderella Toledo team to win their second Championship.Continue reading Fall Season, Maples Prevail
Truman Dare stole third base in the ninth inning for the Caribou. Jamel Langlois single past the drawn-in infield meant the series was over and Thunder Bay had secured its 4th GLBL title, three under the leadership of Rob L.Continue reading Thunder Bay Strikes for Another Title
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.Continue reading Designs on a 6th Championship and a Game 7 to Remember
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.Continue reading Hamilton Captures First GLBL Title Since 2021
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.Continue reading Architects Build Upon Last Year’s Success
