Brooklyn Out of Time, Out of Playoffs
Friday, September 16th, 2016
The Brooklyn Bats will have to put any fleeting championship aspirations on hold for the time being. The Bats were mathematically eliminated from contention for the 2016 playoffs today.

The Bats have missed the playoffs 25 times in their 34 years as a The Virtual Baseball League franchise. This playoff miss is the club's 6th in a row, with their last postseason appearance coming in 2010. In the last 10 seasons, the Bats have missed the playoffs 7 times.
Division Remains Up for Grabs, but D.C. in Postseason
Friday, September 16th, 2016
The D.C. Teddys will be going to the postseason.

While it remains to be seen if they will officially capture the Prior League Clemens Division crown, the club will have a spot in the playoffs.

"It's a weight off our shoulders for sure," said manager Greg Brummett.
Chambers Finalizes Contract Extension with Nashville
Friday, September 16th, 2016
Nashville fans celebrated as word of a signing became reality. Wilford Chambers won't be pulling up stakes anytime soon, as he has signed a 5-year extension at a pay rate of $980,000 per annum.

Since he is widely seen as an integral part of the club, Nashville officials had to keep Chambers from jumping ship.

To date this year Chambers has won 4 and lost 8 with a 3.31 ERA, 36 saves and 81 strikeouts in 63 relief appearances.
