hey there steve ! I don't see a problem with allowing Live Play as long as it's same/next series setting so the schedule doesn't get more than a couple games ahead. I'm not sure how many Non-Live players will actually play live, but it could be a cool experience for some people to play even a handful of games live each season & "take the field" with their players on the journey through Baseball history. I've been playing both live & non-live for...9 years, and to me it feels like you're up there hitting AS Ty Cobb or pitching as Pete Alexander or Mariano Rivera, lol. Games take about 10 minutes to play & they "read" just like simmed games.
* If anyone that has already signed up or is considering signing up has any objections or concers, feel free to sitemail me or discuss it here. I don't want to lose good people by allowing live play.
