So, here I am, painfully counting the seconds until spring training starts again. No baseball, not even fantasy baseball (does anyone have the stats from the exhibition series in Japan?).
I was curious about what the response would be to starting an online OOTP league.
For those who don’t know, OOTP stands for Out of the Park. It is a baseball simulation game that puts you in the general manager’s seat. Their website is here. In short, you have your 25 man roster, plus three levels of minor leagues (AAA, AA, A). You draft and develop players, sign free agents, offer and negotiate trades, set promotion dates, manage your team’s finances, etc. The game is available through the website.
If there is enough of a demand, I’d like to start a league using the following parameters:
[li]Modern-style play[/li][li]Fictional players (to avoid prejudice toward names we already recognize)[/li][li]No DH[/li][li]A small league (6-8 teams at first, so we don’t have to remember 2000 players!)[/li][li]No salary cap[/li][li]All market sizes set to Average to start[/li][/ul]
So, is anyone interested? If you have any questions, I’d be more than happy to answer them.
