2008 CBL Championship
Here is a CBL trivia question:
On July 31, 2010 the CBL played its last game when the Big Bend Cowboys won the final game of a best-of-three series against the Las Cruces Vaqueros.
Who was the final pitcher and the final batter on the last pitch in the CBL?
Sean Kramer batted for the Vaqueros and Reed Alfieri was the pitcher for the Big Bend Cowboys.
Finally found a video clip of the post-game ceremonies from the final game in CBL history. That was the 2010 CBL championship series between the Big Bend Cowboys and the Las Cruces Vaqueros. The YouTube video is now on the 2010 championship page on the CBL website, or you may watch the video at this link. Feel free to share the link with others whom you believe would enjoy it.
2010 CBL Championship
In February 2010 the CBL announced its intended 4-team schedule, which was to include two teams operated by the New York State League — a developmental, pay-to-play league which would promote its players from a developmental league to the CBL. That arrangement fell apart which led to the return of 2009’s Coastal Kingfish to replace the named “West Texas Roadhogs”. The Desert Valley Mountain Lions were kept in the schedule as a travel team, and operated by the league.
Both Ron Baron and Bob Ibach were quoted in the release, and the release mentions previous league championship teams such as the Tarrant County Blue Thunder, Bay Area Toros, and Alexandria Aces. Aspirations of expanding the CBL to Arizona and Colorado for what would have been a 2011 season also were mentioned.
