The third annual Kyle Hunlock Series will get underway in just ten days.  This special, intra-club event is named for fallen Falcon #36 and is a great opportunity for all HBC members to enjoy some friendly (yet competitive) postseason baseball at Grovehill.

Unlike years' past, the 2008 Hunlock Series will set aside the established regular season rosters.  Instead, three new managers will draft three new teams from all available Herts players.  The Red Roosters, Blue Dogs and Black Widows will be comprised of Raptors, Hawks and Falcons.  During the live online draft next week (Thursday 18 September, 8pm) the managers must make shrewd selections when stacking their bench with pitchers, catchers, position players and sluggers.

A Draft Prospectus with relevant hyperlinks will be posted a few days before the event.  Plan to get online next Thursday around 7.45pm and tune-in to the Herts Baseball Internet Radio station.  You will be able to listen to live commentary from the League Commissioner, hear live interviews with the Team Managers and potential superstars, and follow each draft pick as it happens… including your own!

Three special members have been selected to manage the 2008 Kyle Hunlock Series.  These individuals have gone that extra mile this year for Herts Baseball, making an extra commitment to helping the Club and its teams to improve (on and off the diamond).

Red Roosters – Hunter Devine
Blue Dogs – Tim Elkins
Black Widows – Marty Cullen

The series format is straightforward.  Three teams will face each other twice, with two finalists advancing to the Championship Game.  The Thursday before the Championship, the third-place team will be re-drafted (or dealt out) by the finalist managers.  Therefore all Club members will have a chance to compete in the Final and the finalist managers have more options in fielding a competitive line-up.


In the coming days this site will be updated with draft details, team rosters, game results and Series standings.  You will already find the Series schedule and rules, including game rules and draft/trade regulations.
