We found a June 2009 article recapping a game between the Texarkana Gunslingers and the South Louisiana Pipeliners. It has been added to the Gunslingers page here:
Found an article on Checkswing.com about Barry Fowler who, at the time, was 34 years old as a rookie. He made the roster for the Desert Valley Mountain Lions in 2010 and, later that year, went on to play in the American Association for El Paso Diablos (later in 2010), the Winnipeg Goldeyes (2011 and again in 2014), Sioux Falls Pheasants (2012), and the Gary RailCats (2014).
The link to the article was added to the Mountain Lions page here:
Here is a link showing the team batting totals and overall standings for the CBL’s 2009 season:
We have just added a link to a spreadsheet (PDF format) which contains the 2007 stats on the respective team pages (find all teams here) which played during the 2007 Continental Baseball League season. Unlike later seasons, the statistics and rosters were not maintained as well as they could be by the individual teams so the spreadsheet likely will have:
- Missing players and pitchers
- Players and pitchers appearing on one section (such as batting) but not appearing on the bio section
- Incorrect or missing height, bat/throw and other information
- College attended
- Any draft information and/or previous affiliated MiLB experience
Nonetheless, the credit for what accurate information is there goes to Ted Turocy and his work with SABR and any other baseball history services. If others need credit for the accurate information then they will be mentioned in future blog posts on this website. Thank you to those who helped preserve the history as accurately as possible during the league’s history, especially during the first season of play.
If you have information to help improve the content of this 2007 data, such as bat/throw information and any missing players & pitchers, then please contact us. Over time, we will improve the missing & incorrect information to make the data better overall.
