Welcome to the Great Lakes Vintage Rookies League


The Great Lakes Vintage Rookie League consists of franchises in Great Lakes cities with splendid ballparks alongside scenic coastlines. The player base is drawn from teams featuring the rookie seasons of various players with a tilt toward legendarily colorful players, stars, and a few of the commish's personal favorites. These players will generally start off in their rookie seasons, although in some cases they may start a few seasons later at the commish's discretion. A very few may enter in special seasons (i.e. Babe Ruth enters in his first Yankee season), but these will be rare. Looking forward to a good historical mix of players and a fun league.

Commish issues Veterans' Preference Ruling.


In the other I league I run we are beginning to run into players missing seasons when they served in WW2 or Korea. When this situation arises in this league I will be using the same rule I instituted in that league. Players who miss seasons for military service will have the stats from their last full season used until they reach the point where they again have statistics to use. Players will not miss time due to military service. This will be incorporated into the rules page. We currently don't have anyone effected by this, but IT WILL BE THE OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY to inform the commish when a player will be missing seasons for military service. So when players from that era appear in the league you will have to do a little research.

Player pool additions for season 3


"One percent of ballplayers are leaders of men. The other 99 are followers of women." John McGraw
The following teams have been added to the player pool for season 3, listed with key rookie:

1891 Baltimore AA John McGraw
1981 Los Angeles NL Fernando Valenzula
1964 Philadelphia NL Dick Allen
1978 San Diego NL Ozzie Smith

I looked it up and he has a .991 FLD% as a team which is right in the middle of the pack as far as his league goes but the amount of hits he saved helped a ton. His team batting avg is near the bottom of the league (.225) so those saved hits must have crazy impact for his team defensively to win 90+ games.

Thanks for sharing Jay.
