Gibson, Paige, Bell


Gibson, Paige, Bell

Do any of our industrious Commissioners have any of the Greats like Josh Gibson, Satchell Paige or Cool Papa Bell created in a custom league that I could import into a sandbox league I am making?

Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

I haven’t seen those players anywhere yet.

Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

In 70's and Beyond league. The Louisville Bats have a version of Josh Gibson. He has been custom progressed one season.
I basically went to baseball reference and manually input his stats from a certain season into a created player. If I remember right I may have double or even multiplied his stats 150% to translate.
If you look through the league you may find a version of Paige, Bell, and a handful of other Negro League players. I did the same with.
For defensive stats I found a real life Major Leaguer who was average defensively or better and used those stats in ratio to games played at a position and gave them to the imported player.

Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

Thank You! You have exactly what I am looking for plus more. I appreciate the work involved in creating all those players.

I do wish we could create a player and be able to create multiple seasons for them instead of relying on progression.

Re: Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

No problem. Good liuck.

Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

I have created about 20 Negro League players in League #46, MLB Career Stats.

Papa Bell, Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Pop Lloyd, Biz Mackey, Willie Wells, Buck Leonard, Sam Jethroe, Newt Allen, Turkey Stearns, Leon Day, Dave Brown, Nip Winters, Bill Foster, Rube Foster, Smokey Joe Williams, Wilbur Bullet Rogan, Judy William Johnson, Dizzy Dismukes

We do not use "On Fire" in this league, so you would need to adjust that stat.

Re: Gibson, Paige, Bell

The stats created for MLB Career Stats is the career average for players, it is not their best season.
