TCBA News: The Offseason Begins
Saturday, October 23rd, 1926
The Transcontinental Baseball Association offseason is like a river. It ebbs and flows toward a sea of uncertainty. The next few months, though, are where a superior general manager really makes his mark: contract negotiations, trade talks, club assessments, scouting and minor league evaluations. Now that the 1926 playoffs are in the books, it's time for GMs and their staff to get down to the business of creating next year's version of their team.

You may now vote for the league award winners, the option is available in the league menu.
New York Highlanders Take Transcontinental Series
Thursday, October 21st, 1926
With a 5-3 win over the Cincinnati Trojans at Palace of the Fans today, the New York Highlanders wrapped up their 4th title in team history.

The Highlanders left little doubt who was the better team. Celebrating a banner year, "team" was the word of the day in the victorious clubhouse after the game.

"Hitting, pitching, fielding; those are all things you need to win, but most importantly you need a team, a team that works together toward the same collective goal," said New York manager Buzzie Bavasi. "Our players felt that way all year, and they played that way. When one guy had an off day, 24 others stepped up their game and filled the void."

A jovial mood filled the air as New York celebrated into the night. The city's mayor said parade plans were underway and a "huge celebration" would be in order.

"I hope they have a big celebration," Cincinnati manager said. "They deserved to win this series and they deserve to celebrate it."
