1976 League Contracts and Salaries

Contract status for all teams for the 1976 season (updated 9/25/17). This shows ONLY your salary commitments for the 1976 season, your cap total, and the amount you have to use in free agent bidding and in trades. Your total committed for the next season (1977) can be seen under the "Contracts" link on the web site. Keep in mind that you must also be under cap for any FUTURE seasons, as well, so careful when signing or acquiring players. (Any moves or trades that put you over cap for this or future seasons will be disallowed.) Also shown is the total number of players you have under contract for 1976 (includes expiring contracts).

UNSIGNED ROOKIES THAT YOU DRAFT AND FREE AGENTS PICKED UP DURING THE YEAR CAN BE SIGNED AT THE END OF THE SEASON, USING THE NEXT SEASON'S (1977) BUDGET MONEY, SO NO NEED TO SIGN THEM DURING THE CURRENT YEAR. In fact, you would be wise not to do so. Wait and see how they pan out, and keep that money in your budget for flexibility. The year WILL count against their contract year total if you sign them to a long-term contract, but you do NOT have to sign them until the end of the season.

TEAM – 1976 contracts and cap amount ($ currently available) (Players under contract)
Athletics -- $81 of $200 / ($119) (22)
Braves -- $151 of $172 / ($21) (30)
Cardinals -- $194 of $200 / ($6) (23)

Player and Pitcher Changes

Teams may change the starting position of one position player once each season, but this can only be done by making a player's secondary position his primary position. (Players with "IF" listed as secondary position can not be changed. Must be a defined secondary position, such as 2B or OF, for switch to be made.)

A team may also request to convert one pitcher per year from starting pitcher to relief pitcher, or from relief pitcher to starting pitcher. In order to convert a SP to a RP, the player must be at least 30 years old heading into the season in which the conversion is requested. Stats for the pitcher will be reduced roughly in half to reflect IP and number of hits, runs, etc. ERA and WHIP numbers will remain about the same. Stamina will also be reduced in half.

In order to convert a RP to a SP, there must be historic precedent for such a change in "real" baseball (player started as RP and then became SP for MLB team), and the pitcher must have been used mainly as a SP in MLB for at least 3 years in his career (based on G and GS posted for those years). The baseline stat to be used for the pitcher conversion will be the career per game averages for all games, according to baseball-reference.com. A pitcher's stamina and on fire statistics will be determined by looking at the imported historic figures used by Pennant Chase for that player and averaging those numbers during the years in which the pitcher was used primarily as a starter. The commissioner reserves the right to deny the conversion request if career stats overvalue a player due to statistical quirks.

NEW IN 1973: New owners to the league may drop one contract player from their roster, but only if that team has NOT already dropped a player that year. (So if a new owner signs on and drops a player and then leaves the league that same season, the new owner who then takes on the franchise will not be eligible to drop a contract.)

9/25/2017PC - type game for other sports ?achenier
Anybody know if there are any Pennant Chase - type sites for other sports ?

Specifically, Hockey and Football ?

PC is so much fun, seems like a waste to limit it to only one sport.
