    FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY...

    We are currently accepting members for the National Base Ball League (NBBL).

    Members will own a team of their choosing and will draft a team of actual major leaguers from throughout history. Any player from 1876-2003 is available! Players are rated on their actual career performance, not on one particular season.

    Games will be played using Strat-o-Matic baseball and will be simmed on my computer. Each league member will submit a "managerial profile" so the computer can sim games for his team according to his wishes.

    Draw up your lineups, rotations, bullpen, strategies, etc.

    Make mega-trades to get that missing piece you need for the stretch run.

    Get a jump on the competition by landing a steal in the draft.

    We are looking for twenty-four players. We will have two leagues - the (William) Hulbert League and the (Ban) Johnson League. The Johnson league will use the designated hitter; the Hulbert League will not.

    And All-Star Game will be played mid-season.

    Each league is composed of 12 teams, divided equally between 2 divisions (based on team geography). At the end of the 154-game season, the division winners will play each other in a best-of-seven League Championship Series followed by the World's Series: a best-of-nine affair between the Hulbert and Johnson League Champions!

    This is a one-season only ticket. No fees, dues or other obligations besides your committment to draft your team and submit a managerial profile.

    The rest of the work will be done by the computer, with results posted regularly. You just have to sit back, relax and watch your team of all-time greats trample the competition on the way to October glory!

    Imagine Ty Cobb on first, ready to test the throwing arm of Johnny Bench. Imagine Bob Gibson staring down the Beast, Jimmie Foxx. Imagine Mark McGwire teeing off Warren Spahn. Imagine Vladimir Guerrero snaring a liner off the bat of Mickey Mantle.

    Well...in the National Base Ball League, you don't have to. You can read about it in tomorrow's boxscore!

    Sign-up today. There is limited room. (24 teams available.) Please apply by replying to this post and indicating the name of your team (first come, first served). You must use the name of a real major league franchise (though it may be a defunct one) and you will play in the league in which the team actually played (AL/JL or NL/HL).

    Stadiums will also be available. You may play in any park actually used in the major leagues from 1901-2003. We'll get to that later, however.

    For now...who's interested?
    I am interested can I use the name the Montreal Expos robbed of?

    I would like my team to be the Montreal Royals.

    Members will own a team of their choosing and will draft a team of actual major leaguers from throughout history. Players from throughout major league history are available!

    Games will be played using a computer simulation programand will be simmed on my computer. Each league member will submit a "managerial profile" so the computer can sim games for his team according to his wishes.

    Draw up your lineups, rotations, bullpen, strategies, etc. Make mega-trades to get that missing piece you need for the stretch run. Get a jump on the competition by landing a steal in the draft.

    We are looking for at least three more players (which would give us 24 teams to start with). We will have two leagues - the (William) Hulbert League and the (Ban) Johnson League. The Johnson league will use the designated hitter; the Hulbert League will not.

    The All-Star Game will be played at mid-season.

    Imagine Ty Cobb on first, ready to test the throwing arm of Johnny Bench. Imagine Bob Gibson staring down the Beast, Jimmie Foxx as Roger Bresnahan tries to frame the pitch. Imagine Mark McGwire teeing off Warren Spahn and seeing the ball sail over Billy Hamilton's head in center field. Imagine Vladimir Guerrero snaring a liner off the bat of Mickey Mantle, giving Firpo Marberry the save. Imagine Hughie Jennings rounding the bases with his "Eey-Yaw!" on a hit-and-run by Willie Randolph as Scott Rolen tried to fire the ball to Hal Chase in time.
