Bertrand Bombers fold after 9 games
NILES- 9 games into the 2016 regular season, the Bertrand Bombers have folded. Bombers manager Bryan Van Dyke informed Commissioner Alex Friedman of the news the night before their scheduled series with South Bend.
Bertrand will be remembered for a lot of negative things after failing to finish out the 2015 season. There were hopes that a new ballpark would bring excitement to the franchise in need of a shot in the arm. In terms of ballparks, it is an unfortunate loss for the league as the park quickly became one of the favorites around the league.
Bertrand leaves ORWBL with a 8-25 record, including 6 forfeit losses. Alex Friedman announced that league offices are searching for a replacement team. Expect more updates in the coming days.
