5 Different teams won the championship, with New York having itself a mini dynasty led by their pitching. Mike "Meager Mike" Monahan led that bullpen and they combined for under 3.00 ERA for 7 straight years(1878-1884). After the Revolution fell apart, four different teams won championships.

USBL Expands to 10 Teams


Commissioner Jim O'Malley announced today that two new teams would join the USBL and minor league systems. "We feel that now is the time to expand our league. The USBL has been a huge success and the fans have really latched on to the teams and players. The two cities we've chosen to add to our Professional League are Kansas City and St. Louis. Our great country continues to expand west and so will we over the next few decades. There will be an expansion draft soon with the current USBL teams allowed to assign 25 players as protected."


The New Teams


USBL: Kansas City Steam and St. Louis River Bandits

AAA: Omaha Ranchers and Springfield Mallards

AA: Wichita Twisters and Columbia Catfish

A: Tulsa Unforgiven and Peoria Rivermen

I'm happy with our expansion draft. We picked up a lot of really talented players that can play a variety of positions so that allows for a lot of different lineups and depth due to injuries. I plan on filling out the front office and our minor teams before the start of Spring training More to come.......


Now starts the 1st GM part of my OOTP career

You can create as many players over the course of this OOTP as you want. At the start it will be an Inagural Draft with the 8 teams. After we get this going and I introduce a draft you can make yourself a draftee or just continue making a Free Agent. Around the 1960s I'll allow International Free Agents.

ALSO KEEP IN MIND how baseball was in the respective Eras. Home Run Power doesn't starting kicking up untill around the 40s(IIRC).

UBL 1910 Report


Cleveland is a dominant force in the UBL winning 11 Championships, including 5 in the last decade. The Washington Freedom are the only team, out of the original 8, that have not won a single championship(Chicago won their 1st in 1909). Despite sporting the best win percentage out of all the teams, Detroit has only won 6 championships. St. Louis quickly asserted themselves in the UBL with two championships(1904, 1908).
