'TRIPLE A' & DICKS JR. JOIN SIMBL HISTORY AS 3RD & 4TH PITCHERS IN LEAGUE HISTORY WITH 3000 CAREER K'S

Two of the most dominant pitchers in the SIMBL New File Era and in SIMBL history, Chicago's Alan Alexander Anderson (above left) and Sacramento's Richard Dicks Jr. (above right), become only the 3rd and 4th pitchers in SIMBL history to strikeout 3000 career batters.  The two, who have 11 Hurler Of The Year Awards and 24 All-Star Game appearances between them, join SIMBL Hall Of Famers James Sousa and Bobby Grimes on the 3000 career K list.

Hi again everybody. Lance Stanley reporting for the SIMBL.

As the SIMBL celebrates its 30th anniversary season the SIMBL New File Era (2019-current) has now entered its 16th season of history passing the SIMBL First File Era's (2005-2018) 14-season of history and records.  

The two eras are combined for overall history and records for the SIMBL.

While many of the big career records have been passed in the last two seasons, one interesting contrast remains in the career strikeout list.  The SIMBL First File Era was vastly different than the current New File Era in number of pitcher strikeouts and strikeouts in a season and career.

For example, there were 11 300+ strikeout seasons in the New File Era from 2005-2018 led by Tacoma's former 2011 #1 overall draft pick Deangelo Ceja's single-season record of 344 in 2013.  The SIMBL New File Era single-season strikeout record thus far has been Seattle's Brock Vinci's 284 in 2031.  In contrast, the SIMBL First File Era featured 29 seasons of at least 284 strikeouts or more by a pitcher.

Recently, Chicago's six-time Hurler Of The Year Alan Alexander Anderson and Sacramento's five-time Hurler Of The Year Richard Dicks Jr., both future first ballot SIMBL Hall Of Famers, became only the 3rd and 4th pitchers in the league's 30-season history to strikeout 3000 SIMBL batters in their career.

"Triple A" is two K's away from overtaking SIMBL Hall Of Famer Bobby Grimes for second place while Anderson and Dicks Jr. both have a chance at breaking fellow SIMBL Hall Of Famer James Sousa's still-standing SIMBL record of 3334.  Sousa, one of the all-time dominating aces in SIMBL history, achieved his record in just 14 seasons while Anderson and Dicks Jr. are currently in their 16th SIMBL seasons.

As of the 5/22/2034 league date here are the current SIMBL career strikeout leaders in a list that features a combined 31 Hurler Of The Year Awards and six SIMBL Hall Of Famers:
