Long-time Calgary closer John Coburn, (above) in his 14th season as the full-time Clippers closer, makes SIMBL history in 2040 SIM 2 by joining only six other closers in league history to save 500 career games.

SIMBL Contributor

More SIMBL history was made with the beginning of the league's 36th season of play.

Long-time SIMBL closers Chris Ross and John Coburn each became one of just seven players in league history to save 500 games.

Ross achieved his milestone on April 11, 2040 in a 5-1 win over Texas.

The 38 year-old Ross was a first round pick of the Calgary Clippers in 2019 but was traded to the Knoxville Lumberkings in a deal for eventual three-time Hurler Of The Year and SIMBL Hall Of Famer Vinny Corleone in a move that helped Calgary to the 2023 SIMBL championship.

Ross entered the SIMBL at age 20 in 2022 and became the Lumberkings' full-time closer in the 2026 season and spent 18 seasons with Knoxville before signing a two-year $16,000,000 contract with Westbury this past off-season. Ross is a 13-time All-Star, tied with Tony Aguilar and Dez Jordan for the second-most All-Star bids in the history of the league and only behind SIMBL Hall Of Famer Alan Alexander Anderson and Cedric Issacson's 14.

Calgary's long-time closer John Coburn also joined Ross on April 13, 2040 with his 500th career save against Cleveland in a 2-0 win.  Coburn was a second round pick, 61st overall, by Oregon in the 2021 SIMBL Draft and traded to the former Deer Lake Direwolves (now Norfolk Buccaneers) for closer Robert McFadden's whose 78-game save streak remains a SIMBL legendary record.

Coburn was obtained by Calgary in a trade with Deer Lake (now Norfolk Buccaneers) in 2027 for SP Christian Howard and immediately became the Clippers' full-time closer replacing eventual SIMBL Hall Of Famer Barrett Jenkins who left for Asheville in free agency after spending his first seven seasons in Calgary.

Coburn is a six-time All-Star who had a ten-season streak of 30+ saves from 2026-2035.  The 36 year-old is in his 17th SIMBL season and 14th as the Calgary closer.

Former long-time and current Boston closer Cedric Issacson holds the SIMBL record with 14 consecutive 30+ save seasons.  Former long-time Hawaii and current Bristol closer Todd Newell is second with 12. Calgary's John Coburn and Rochester's Otto Orf each have 10 consecutive 30+ save seasons.

The SIMBL New File Era (2019-current) has been blessed with several uber-Hall Of Fame-type closers in its time.  All of the 500+ Save Club are already enshrined or certainly will be inducted into the SIMBL Hall Of Fame.

Ross and Coburn are currently tied for 6th-place in league history with 501 career saves ten behind current San Diego closer Steven Pfleuger. Hall Of Famer Jenkins' 547 saves occupy fourth place and fellow SIMBL Hall Of Famer Willie Roger DeMarco holds third-place with his 580 career saves.

Current Las Vegas and former long-time Asheville closer Dez Jordan's 678 saves are two behind former long-time Las Vegas closer Cedric Issacson's 680 career saves currently as both long-toothed fireman still have gas in the tank before they are automatically inducted to the SIMBL Hall Of Fame upon their retirements.

Here's a current list of the SIMBL all-time saves leaders mixing the SIMBL First File Era (2005-2018) and the current SIMBL New File Era (2019-current) as of the 4/16/2040 league date:
