Baseball-Reference now has boxscores going back as far as 1916: www.baseball-reference.com/boxes
I ran a few themes like this a few years back when I was more active at WiS, so I thought I'd bring it back.
When you sign up, I'll assign you a random date (via random.org). Go to b/r.com to view the box scores from that date in history.You will be allowed to twist any player who appears in any box score
from your date to any season in his career. The player could appear as a pinch runner, pinch hitter, etc - as long as you see his name in the boxscore, he's eligible.
Caveat: I will ensure every date has at least SIX
games played that day to ensure you have a sufficient pool of players to draw from. If not, I will generate a new date. Be warned, if you draw an early year, your pitchers could be extremely limited (6 or 7 games played may only yield 12-16 pitchers or so - but hey, it's luck of the draw).
- $140m cap
- No clones, no WW, no AA, no trades, no live play
- Yes to DH
- Ballpark must have been played in on your date
- Allignment - Random
I'll be traveling Friday afternoon thru Sunday 11/8-11/10 - so I may be delayed in getting you your date if you sign up during that time, but I'll get it to you ASAP.
The first willing person to sign up can generate my date and post it to the forum (there are a couple of options on Random.org - you can run three random sequences (4-9 for month, 1-31 for day and 1916-2013 for year) or use the date generator (set range to 4/1/1916 - 9/30-2013) - obviously rerun if you get a date that's out of range.
