SCORESHEET OLD TIMERS BASEBALL
Relive Baseball History with Players of the Past
How would you like to enjoy this off-season having Cecil Fielder hit home runs for your baseball team? Instead of spending the off-season with no baseball, now you can have fun drafting, trading, and managing your team of players from the years 1988-91.
Join a National League and maybe you'll get Will Clark to bat third or Brett Butler to bat leadoff. You could choose to spend your top pick on a pitcher such asJose Rijo, or go for the great hitting of Darryl Strawberry. In the American League, such players as Kirby Puckett, Cal Ripken, Jose Canseco and Rickey Henderson will all go in the first few rounds.
Just as in our regular Scoresheet Baseball game, your team will play complete simulated games, based on your players' major league performances from 1988-91. Drafting will begin in early November and go until early December, and the 12-week season runs from mid-December thru early March, taking you right up to spring training. We'll use 1988 stats for the first 3 weeks, then 1989 stats for the next 3 weeks, 1990 stats for 3 more weeks, and 1991 stats for the last 3 weeks. Changing the stats used every 3 weeks will keep you supplied with fresh challenges, as you trade or change your lineup to get the most from your team. And in this off-season game all trades and lineup changes are free! Of course, all the games are played on our computer while you get the fun of running your team.
As in all of our games, a player can only be drafted by one team in each league. Once the draft is over, we have found that trading in these winter leagues hits a fever pitch. This is your chance to discuss blockbusters such as Eddie Murray for Nolan Ryan, or Dave Henderson for a package of pitchers. You will get to see exactly how your trades work out as your read over your results each week. And to help refresh your memory of these past players, we do print year by year statistics for each player in the draft packet.
Your team will play 12 games a week, for a full 144 game schedule. We'll send you a complete scoresheet for every game your team plays. Games can also be viewed on the web in a text based play-by-play format. You'll also receive: league standings, individual and team stats, trade offers and results, a weekly newsletter, league leaders, team-vs-team records, and the best and worst team stats in all of Scoresheet. League winners will be awarded trophies engraved with your name and accomplishment.
