    Another Pilots site...

    Obviously there's some interest out there.

    Perhaps a Kansas City Atheletics Forum should be added, or atleast rename the Philladelphia Athletics Forum, so that It reads Philladelphia/Kansas City Athletics, much like the current Boston/Milwakuee Braves Forum, I just feel that Kansas City should get some love for holding the A's until their migration west was complete
    I must be first at everything!.......All the Time!!!!

    We could have some great "Ball Four" discussions on a Pilots forum. THe Pilots existed 15 years before I was born, but I have read that book 5 times. Its my favorite.

    Interesting in that Pilots' picture above that Jim Bouton is not in the photo, nor is he mentioned as being missing. Anyone know what the deal is there?

    Is There Really Enough

    The 1969 Seattle Pilots, as you are all aware, only existed one season. That one season is the one reason I have not started a stand-alone forum for the team. I believed that those seeking to post about the Pilots would just post in the Milwaukee Brewers forum.

    I will open it if there is a general feeling it will work. I look at the Braves (non-Atlanta) forum and they are barely active, with quite a bit more history which makes me doubtful. I am willing to try most anything and nothing will be lost, except for time, for trying.

    PS: Did you know that every box score for every Seattle Pilots game played can be accessed off that one link?

    Missing No Longer

    Per the requests seen in this thread, a Seattle Pilots forum has been created. Enjoy and I look forward to reading a little here & there about this unique club.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks webmaster, this team should be interesting to talk about.
    My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

    1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

    2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

    3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

    4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

    5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

    Team Photo

    I just bought the team photo shown here on ebay. Jim Bouton isn't in it because he had already been traded to the Houston Astros for Dooley Womack,who is in the photo.You might also notice that Dooley Womack is in it and Tommy Davis isn't. He had also been traded to the Astros for Danny Walton and Sandy Valdespino.
