  • Air Force fullback Broam Hart nominated for Good Works Team

    Published: Tue, Jul 15, 2014

  • Built by association: Which players are most thought of with each pro baseball team?

    Updated: Tue, Jul 15, 2014

    The results proved the hypothesis correct, even if the process was not entirely scientific. After Tony Gwynn's death from cancer in June, the question was raised if Gwynn was, in baseball history, the player most closely associated with one franchise. The question was taken to our...

  • Sky Sox game against Storm Chasers suspended by weather

    Updated: Sun, Jul 13, 2014

    The Sky Sox will have to sit on a four-run deficit for nearly a month, and their fans will have to wait even longer to see if they've won a car. The game between the Sky Sox and Omaha was suspended on Saturday with Colorado Springs trailing 4-0 with one out in the top of the fourth....

  • Sky Sox fall in blowout; Nicasio works from bullpen

    Published: Fri, Jul 11, 2014

    Hidden in a Sky Sox blowout on Friday night may have been a turning point in Juan Nicasio's career. The struggling starter worked out of the bullpen for the first time since 2007. It didn't much matter in this one, as Omaha polished Colorado Springs pitching for 13 hits in a 9-1...

  • Rehabbing Rockies help Sky Sox victory over Oklahoma City

    Updated: Thu, Jul 3, 2014

    That faint sound Rockies fans may have heard in Colorado Springs on Wednesday night? That was the bugle call. The beleaguered big-league club, losers of 14 of 16, saw Nolan Arenado complete his five-game rehab stint with the Sky Sox in a 7-5 victory over Oklahoma City that was kicked...

  • Sky Sox miscues open the door for Oklahoma City in 10-6 loss

    Published: Mon, Jun 30, 2014

    Oklahoma City's Enrique "Kike" Hernandez knew the Sky Sox played in a cavernous park, but he figured the shot he hit in the fifth inning at least had a chance. "I was thinking as I was running to first that if that ball is not gone, I'm bunting my next at-bat," said the RedHawks...

  • Sky Sox fall 2-0 in game played at a major league level

    Updated: Sun, Jun 29, 2014

    The contest played between the Sky Sox and Iowa on Sunday was as close to a carbon copy of a major league game as can be seen in Triple-A. Two starting pitchers dueled it out, a Gold Glove defender turned in a gem of a play, and the Iowa manager shuffled through three relievers in...

  • Iowa's vaunted infield decimates Sky Sox in blowout

    Updated: Sat, Jun 28, 2014

    The good news for Colorado Rockies fans is this infield is currently with just the Iowa Cubs. There will come a day when Kris Bryant, Javy Baez, Arismendy Alcantara and Chris Valaika will inflict this sort of damage in Denver. For now, the carnage was limited to Colorado Springs....

  • Hefty football class enters basic training for Air Force

    Published: Thu, Jun 26, 2014

    The wheels on the buses hauling future Air Force cadets to the start of basic training must have felt a bit more strain this year. A host of football players weighing in at 280-plus pounds joined 1,200 others in the Air Force Class of 2018 in saying goodbye to their families, walking...
