The Lisbon Tunnelmen will not field a team for the 2018 season.
The Lisbon Tunnelmen have had a really tough offseason. We lost 6 players to either relocation or retirement and another 2 will be sidelined for the foreseeable future while injuries heal for a total of 8 players lost. Having said that we are down to 6 committed players (barely enough for an infield). We have tried to recruit this winter but have not had the response we were hoping.
I’ve polled my team and we have decided we will sit out the 2018 season and use this time to recruit for next season. I wanted to give everyone enough notice so teams might still be able to reschedule. I apologize if this communication comes late to some as we have been waiting until the last minute to salvage a team but it hasn’t panned out.
Good luck in 2018 fellas!
Disappointing news! We hope those Tunnelmen who wish to play base ball this season will find a spot on one of the other Connecticut teams’ rosters. We hope to see you back in 2019, Lisbon Tunnelmen!
