‘Clones Advance to Single-Elimination Portion of Tourney With 8-0 Victory On Saturday


BY NICK ROBINSON milehighcbl@gmail.com WICHITA, KANSAS — After falling to the Fairbanks (Alaska) Goldpanners 5-10 on Thursday, the Colorado Cyclones did what they’ve done all season while facing adversity. Bounce back. “The win was huge for us,” Colorado head coach J.L. Buchanan said. “We hit really well against Fairbanks. We just couldn’t pitch or field really well. I felt good about San Antonio, though. The Angels made it to the semifinals last year and are a quality team. We were ready and had great pitching – that was the difference.” Darin Cook (4 IP, 4 K’s) led the Cyclones to an [...]

I don’t think we’ve been run-ruled the last four years before that. We went on to win 10-straight games after that. It was a wakeup call for everyone.” The 10-game [...]

Passion Drives Kubec In Second Year As League Owner


BY NICK ROBINSON milehighcbl@gmail.com DENVER – If you would have asked Amanda Kubec when she was a freshman in college about where her life would head, owning a baseball league would be near the bottom of the list. “I never in a million years, starting out as an art major (at Metropolitan State), would have guessed I would own a baseball league,” Kubec said. “Taking a sports management class as a hospitality major helped me spark my love and a realization, I could actually make a career of this.” Baseball wasn’t too big in Kubec’s life growing up, but her grandfather’s [...]
