HUSTLERS ACE ANDERSON NABS 150TH SIMBL CAREER WIN

Las Vegas Three-Time SL Hurler Of The Year On The Way To Sitting WIth SIMBL All-Time Greats In Career Wins

Las Vegas ace Alan Alexander Anderson (above) is just now hitting his prime on a career that already has won 150 games at the age of 28 years-old.  'Triple A' has won 20+ games for the fifth season in a row joining future SIMBL shoo-in Hall Of Famer Bobby Grimes as the only pitchers in SIMBL history to achieve the feat.  Anderson has won three consecutive SL Hurler Of The Year Awards and is aiming to join Grimes as the only pitchers to win 25 games in three out of four seasons. The former #15 overall pick of the 2019 SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft hopes to lead the Hustlers back to the SIMBL postseason for the first time since the 2024 season. Despite posting 90+ wins in 2025 and 2026, Las Vegas didn't qualify for the playoffs playing in the toughest division in the SIMBL the past several seasons.  'AAA' recently became only the 20th pitcher in SIMBL history to win 150 games.

In the midst of his fifth consecutive 20+ win season, Las Vegas' reigning three-time SL Hurler Of The Year Alan Alexander Anderson has also achieved a career milestone. At 28 years, 290 days Anderson has climbed halfway to the 300-win mark. Though nothing is ever certain in the SIMBL, it seems like he's got a good as shot as any of reaching 300 wins.

Is averaging 15 wins per year for the next 10 years something that's even in his mind? You wouldn't know it to ask Las Vegas' ace, "It's about winning the last game of the year, not career stats. I'm trying to do all I can to bring another championship to Vegas. It's long, long overdue," "Triple A" said recently of the Hustlers quest to win the third SIMBL Championship in franchise history and their first since the 2015 season some 13 years ago.

That part, at least, is true. Despite several 100-win seasons and three trips to the playoffs in the SIMBL New File Era since 2019, the Hustlers haven't lived up to expectations. Playing in one of the toughest divisions in all of sports in the SL Central, GM Carl Hannah's Hustlers even missed the playoffs twice in 2025 and 2026 with 90+ win teams.

Anderson himself hasn't pitched in the playoffs since 2024 when he wasn't nearly the pitcher that he is today. The Hustlers face a tough Asheville Smokies team of GM Pete McGowan to take the division, currently standing three games back. More likely they'll be able to sneak into the playoffs with the SL wildcard berth, something that shouldn't scare a team that arguably plays better on the road.  Asheville has advanced to the SLCS the past three seasons advancing to the 2025 SIMBL CS losing to Calgary in six games.  Vegas made it to the SIMBL CS in 2023 losing to Calgary in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game Seven in what is regarded as one of the best championship series in SIMBL history.

Still, regardless of how the season ends up, the baseball world is seeing something special in Anderson. A big gamble pick by Hannah as a raw prospect with the #15 overall pick of the 2019 SIMBL New File Era Inaugural Draft that has worked out so far in Las Vegas' favor. He's averaging 21 wins per full season and, if he keeps up that nearly impossible pace, would reach 300 wins sometime around his 36th birthday. More likely, he'll need to pitch a few years closer to 40 but, if he manages to do it, he'll have a good argument as the greatest of all time in SIMBL history.
