After their 8th season in the Atlantic League, the Lancaster Barnstormers have been through multiple managers, hundreds of players, front office personnel, and fans have come and gone.  One of the most consistent thing about the franchise has been their on field host...I.M. Fun

We've been to many games in the minors and there is not a better host for the game that I.M. Fun.  He is wacky, funny, and definitely entertaining.  He wears some of the craziest outfits and makes the in between inning games fun to watch.  It doesn't matter what the score is, you can definitely have a fun family night out at the ballpark knowing you'll be entertained by I.M. Fun

The Barnstormers do recognize that they have the best when they had a night to honor him and even gave away I.M. Fun bobble heads! 

Whether dressed up like Rocky, a cow, or just wearing a goofy hat, I.M. Fun is a great game host...not just for a 1/2 inning...but for the entire game!

Clean Sweep!

Winning a championship is the ultimate goal every season and this year the Barnstormers had the team but came up short.  One of the positives that came out of the season was the end of season awards.  The Barnstormers swept the Manager of the Year, MVP, and Pitcher of the Year for the first time in league history.  Congratulations to Butch Hobson, Blake Gailen, and Dwayne Pollok

Butch Hobson, Dwayne Pollok, Blake Gailen

In another note, Blake Gailen was named the Independent Baseball Player of the Year for all Independent leagues!  His effort has been rewarded as he has already signed a contract for the Colorado Rockies next season!
