| || Austin Bats Ship Kowing to Fargo |
Wednesday, April 26th, 2034
You can focus on the negatives after being traded to a new team -- finding a new place to stay, leaving teammates and friends, having to start anew -- but one player hopes to focus on the positives. "It means I'm wanted somewhere. At least one team sees potential in me." Those were the comments heard after the Austin Bats came to an agreement to deal 27-year-old 1B Duane Kowing and a 2nd round draft pick to the Fargo Nordiques for 20-year-old 2B Alfredo Tirre, 20-year-old CF Alfredo García and 24-year-old RHP Garry Webberley earlier today. The deal is expected to be formally announced later this evening.
In his season totals Kowing has 4 home runs and a .313 batting average.
Tirre is currently batting .208 with no home runs and 0 RBIs.

Tuesday, April 25th, 2034
Jorge Valdéz put on a hitting clinic today at The Big House, spraying hits all over the ballpark and lashing Traverse City pitchers for 5 hits in 6 at-bats. However, the offensive onslaught wasn't enough for the California Dreamers, who still fell, 6-3.
"Sometimes I try to pull the ball too much, so today I just went with the pitch," Valdéz told reporters after the game. "It's great to get 5 hits, but it would have been nicer to win the ballgame. too."
Jorge Valdéz singled in the 1st, flied out in the 2nd, singled in the 4th, singled in the 6th, singled in the 8th and singled in the 9th.
Presently Valdéz is batting .375 with no home runs and 5 RBIs. He has played in 17 games and scored 5 times.
