Something in a game…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 5:10 pm

I enjoy playing APBA Baseball. Lately, I’ve been playing 8 team 1-&-Done tournaments and using different teams from across the history of baseball, but more specifically, teams eligible for the APBA Convention Tournament. I pick teams, play the seven games to declare a winner, then select seven more teams and allow the winner to play in another tourney.

This works well for my short attention span. I have been scoring the games using BallScore (From for free) and it goes fairly quickly with my Surface. My wife calls it my geek hobby, but there are worse things.

I have played several tourneys and sometimes the favored teams win and sometimes they don’t. That is why we roll the games. I could play tourneys using best-of series and the better teams would most likely win more but not necessarily. I manage both teams and sometimes I do prefer particular teams over other teams but I don’t give my preferences any favorable treatment. There have been some interesting match-ups and I think I will post some box scores here.

The 1928 Philadelphia Athletics were my defending Champion and I felt like they were a much better team than the 1995 Boston Red Sox.  In this particular game, the Red Sox started a CYZ pitcher against the A’s BZ.  To further disadvantage the BoSox, the A’s were a Fielding One and the Red Sox were a Fielding Three.  Basically, the A’s had better fielding and their pitcher should give up fewer hits.  Still, a 1-0 game by a C pitcher against a fairly powerful offense is rare indeed and a lot of fun to roll since a 66 could possibly undo that in a hurry.

I will continue to play games and post more frequently on the Delphi Forums in the group APBA Between the Lines.  I will post much less frequently on my various personal blogs.  If anyone has any questions or interest in the APBA game, post a comment or shoot me a question.

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