After a four-year hiatus from running a successful, twenty year-old simulation league, I am recreating a 16 team online simulation league using Mike Cieslinski’s Dynasty League Baseball Online. My old league originally played his Pursue the Pennant board game, moved to Strat-O-Matic for a number of years, and then turned to Dynasty League Baseball board game the last few years. Unfortunately, as the league participants aged, real life responsibilities made it difficult to find time to meet face-to-face to play. Fortunately, Mike has developed a new online version of the sim, so we are giving it another go. So far ten old-time members of the league have signed back up. We are waiting to hear back from a few others. Since I’ve always felt that sixteen teams is the perfect size for a sim league, I’m posting on the site to see if any of you might be interested in joining in. It will be an auction-based keeper league with some dues required and a commitment of a few hours of week.
I realize this post isn’t particularly newsworthy but running this site does have its privileges. :D
Additionally, Mike has offered to run a free Greatest Teams Tournament with participants from the site.
If you have interest in joining the league, post within the thread and/or friend me on Facebook so I can provide more info.
If you have interest in participating in the Greatest Teams Tournament, make your interest known in the thread as well.
