1930s Intrasquad Game

Thursday, January 18, 2018

The 1920s game is here.

1930s Reserves 11
1930s Starters 7

-I'm now planning on scaling back the offense a tick, just around the periphery, extra bases taken, runners moved up on ground balls as opposed to being forced.  I'd like to see a little less scoring and games move a little more quickly.

-The star here was Stan Hack who hit 3 homers in a losing cause for the starters.  Foxx/Greenberg/Medwick also added homers for the starters, each of their runs coming via homer. The first six were scored in the first 3 innings, Carl Hubbell got knocked out after an inning and two-thirds. 

-Appling hit the only homer for the winning reserves, but Greenberg (played for both teams) reached three times and the reserves doubled five times.  Dutch Leonard was the star for the reserves, he went 7 1/3 in relief of Hubbell to get the win.

The Progressive Era game is here.

I tweaked the pitchers cards prior to this one; the game is going to be heavily batter dependent with the differences between pitchers being relatively small, but I wanted to increase that disparity a little bit. 

Another successful game -

1920s Starters 8
1920s Reserves 5

On a team filled with Hall of Famers, Heinie Groh was the star, he hit two 2 run homers and added a double in the Starters 8-5 win.  Bill Terry and Tris Speaker both added homers for the Starters.  Walter Johnson gave up 3 in 5 1/3 for the win. Ted Lyons gave up 3 in 2 1/3 for the loss. Goose Goslin went 4-4 for the Reserves, Harry Hooper and Ernie Lombardi both had a couple of hits.  Neither Ruth-Gehrig-Hornsby were a combined 0-10 for the Starters, who still scored 8 runs.

What This Is+The 19th Century Team

21st Century B

This is a dynamic team, once a player retires he is off the club - either he'll stick with one of the other 21st century teams (or the late 20th century leftover team; in the same way the early 20th century team also includes 19th century players, 21st century players are eligible for the late 20th century team) or he's out of the league.  This is the only team for active players, that's a hard and fast rule - if you're active, you're either here or not playing.
