    Even though it's 1901, can we select a ballpark from a later era? Maybe that's been covered, but I haven't seen it.

    the park you choose has to be from the 1901 season. you keep that park every year so you need to see how the ratings progress from year to year in order to know how it will affect your team.

    Okay, then.... I assume that we keep a park only as long as it was actually in use? Then move to a different park?

    In any case, I'll take

    Exposition Park,

    even though the outfield often flooded during games in the Spring.

    Thats correct Ron .... once a park is out of use you may switch parks. teams also get one free move per decade if they wish.

    TMI backround. Living in Stevens Point, WI, our D-III basketball program has been very successful. In the past Dick Bennett and his brother Jack coached our Pointers. Dick moved on the UW-Madison. Dick’s son Tony, now head coach at the U. Virginia, dribbled circles around our son in YMCA basketball. Therefore, I am proud to have the Kalamazoo Kumquats play in Bennett Park. Jack

    stadium graphics are updated on team pages on our website. Also let me know what you want to do with your team logo if you haven't already done so so I can finish up the team pages.

    I am not very good with logos either so I will just take whatever you have for it. Also my name is spelled wrong on the site. It is Jason. Thanks!

    This is the pic I want (maybe edit out the reflection). I don't know how to add my team name.

    What are you talking about? The Iron logo is great! Let me see what I can do.

    I'm just a little confused here Rich. I thought that if we took a park, when the real team switched parks (like Pittsburgh from Exposition Park to Forbes Field in 1909) that we inherited the new park. Was I wrong about that - we can just switch to any other available park? Or do we get first option on the new park but take another one if we don't want the new park?

    if an owner wants to change to the new park they would have dibs on that. but since park factors change so drastically in the earlier years of park building I want owners to have the chance to opt out if a park closes

    I'm good with that arrangement and agree completely with the reasoning as well.

    Oh, OK. I could have worked something up for you, but the one Rich did looks really good to me. If there's anything you might want changed, let me know, but that one looks great to me.

    Angels are pleased to announce they will play their home games in Washington Park

    "A ballplayer has to just go out and be mean. You can't play half-heartedly. If you do, there's someone right over your shoulder that'll take your job away. If you don't do your job, what they're paying you for, why should they pay you? You just can't put in eight hours, that's what a lot of people don't realize about athletes. Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    Drats, good choice Garry. I was hoping that one would sneak through. There will only be five parks left when I pick. It will be interesting to see where I end up.
