And they’re off…

One of my favorite hobbies is my APBA Baseball Game.  Using that and BallStatBallScore v11, I am going to play a 64 team tournament with 64 teams from the Federal League and Major Leagues from 1914-1916,  The Majors had 16 teams in the three seasons and the Federal League had eight teams both seasons of its existence.  I seeded the teams according to record and place so that there are 64 seeds and each match-up will be a best of three series.  I am going to follow the rules established for the 2012 APBA convention with each team using a three-man rotation.  Each teams rotation will reset at one for each round.  Instead of limiting the teams to 20 man rosters, I will use the 25 man rosters available for each team, according to the team with which each player completed the season.  I will use most substitution patterns of the time (i.e. very limited) and use the lineups and rotations as indicated by the order of the APBA Roster Sheets.

The first series in Round One has the Top-seeded 1915 Boston Red Sox against the 64-seed 1916 Philiadelphia Athletics.  The rotation for the Red Sox is Foster Shore and Ruth and for the Athletics it is Myers, Bush and Nabors.

Game one saw the Red Sox win 5-2.

There's a fine line between visionary and wrong. Unfortunately, it takes a visionary to see it.
