When a guy gets "retired", does that mean he is done forever?........I mean I know that SHOULD be how retirements work coughFavrewheeze.........

Sounds like a good plan, as you get as many super greats into as much playing time as possible...........one thing about all-time-great type of projects is many guys who are superstars or even "Inner Circle" guys don't get much PT.

Hahaha no I know what you mean! But for right now, yes, it means they're gone forever. It's unfortunate for guys like Ernie Banks who really struggled once he moved from Scranton to Allentown. For right now though, I'm going to keep them gone forever. I have plans for expansion after Season 5 with two new teams coming into the league as well, so if I run out of players maybe I'll change my mind. Maybe you sit out one season after a sub-.200 season and if you have 2-3 of those seasons then you're gone forever.

Yeah that's the one thing about this project that it is hard to get everyone in. Especially with just 15 players per roster. I really appreciate you following along though! I can't believe so many people are checking this out it's awesome.

Keystone Baseball League Season 5 Preview



ALLENTOWN FLEETWINGS


PITCHERS: Ed Walsh, Wilbur Cooper, Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, Jerry Koosman, Hoyt Wilhelm. CATCHER: Josh Gibson. INFIELDERS: Lou Gehrig, Rogers Hornsby, George Brett, Arky Vaughan. OUTFIELDERS: Ty Cobb, Ken Griffey Jr, Joe DiMaggio, Bobby Bonds.

FLEETWINGS OUTLOOK: An amazing draft by the Allentown Fleetwings as they scoop up Josh Gibson, Joe DiMaggio, and Sandy Koufax. Look out for Allentown, after falling short in the KBL Playoffs they sure do look like they could finally notch a winning season as their offense gets a huge boost from their outstanding draft.



BETHLEHEM STEELERS


PITCHERS: Tim Keefe, Christy Mathewson, Gaylord Perry, Babe Ruth, Chief Bender, Lee Smith. CATCHER: Gabby Hartnett. INFIELDERS: Buck Leonard, Jud Wilson, Harmon Killebrew, George Davis. OUTFIELDERS: Ed Delahanty, Tris Speaker, Turkey Stearnes, Babe Ruth.

STEELERS OUTLOOK: The Steelers had a solid draft after winning the Keystone Cup for the second time in their history. They picked up Tris Speaker, Harmon Killebrew, and Gabby Hartnett. They lost Al Simmons, Buck Leonard, and Roy Campanella to retirement. Look for the Steelers to once again be in the thick of things.



HARRISBURG SENATORS


PITCHERS: Big Bill Foster, Addie Joss, Roger Clemens, Babe Adams, Hilton Smith, Goose Gossage. CATCHER: Mickey Cochrane. INFIELDERS: Jimmie Foxx, Nap Lajoie, Wade Boggs, Pop Lloyd. OUTFIELDERS: Ralph Kiner, Larry Walker, Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell.

SENATORS OUTLOOK: The Senators picked up Mickey Cochrane, Nap Lajoie, Roberto Clemente, and Larry Walker. Lajoie should be a huge success at the top of the lineup for Harrisburg as they have a very potent lineup behind him. Harrisburg fell short in the playoffs but hopefully this lineup can bring them to the top.



LANCASTER RED ROSES


PITCHERS: Pete Alexander, Jack Chesbro, Jim Palmer, Three Finger Brown, Nip Winters, Roy Face. CATCHER: Buck Ewing. INFIELDERS: Frank Thomas, Mule Suttles, Joe Morgan, Pie Traynor, Willie Wells. OUTFIELDERS: Oscar Charleston, Willard Brown, Hank Aaron.

RED ROSES OUTLOOK: The Red Roses had the #2 seed in the playoffs and they could not come out on top as they lost to the red-hot Allentown Fleetwings. Lancaster added Pie Traynor, Willard Brown, and Jack Chesbro as they get a little more offensive firepower and they get a good top of the rotation guy in Chesbro.



SCRANTON ELECTRICS


PITCHERS: Old Hoss Radbourn, Rube Waddell, Tom Seaver, Satchel Paige, Nolan Ryan, Dan Quisenberry. CATCHER: Mike Piazza. INFIELDERS: Mark McGwire, Rod Carew, John Beckwith, Dobie Moore. OUTFIELDERS: Joe Jackson, Barry Bonds, Willie Mays, Frank Robinson.

ELECTRICS OUTLOOK: The Electrics have won two Governor's Cups which goes to the team with the best regular-season record. However, they have yet to win a postseason championship. They boast one of the best offenses in the league, and with the departure of Nap Lajoie, they picked up another great second baseman in Rod Carew. Look for the Electrics to make some noise this year, their offense is great but their pitching needs to be better.



YORK WHITE ROSES


PITCHERS: Kid Nichols, Walter Johnson, Vida Blue, Al Spalding, Dick Redding, Tug McGraw. CATCHER: Oscar "Heavy" Johnson. INFIELDERS: Hank Greenberg, Jackie Robinson, Tubby Scales, Albert Belle, Honus Wagner. OUTFIELDERS: Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Chino Smith.

WHITE ROSES OUTLOOK: After winning two Keystone Cup Titles, the White Roses took a significant step back as they have lost their star catcher Josh Gibson to Allentown. However, they picked up a pretty close replacement in Oscar Johnson. They also added Jackie Robinson and Kid Nichols. The White Roses are definitely going to be towards the bottom of the standings this year as Allentown, Harrisburg, and Scranton all have solid teams. 


SEASON FIVE PREDICTED FINISH

They didn't choose to...all random. If a team does not have a pitcher injured during the course of the season I have to sort the pitchers on the team and rank them 1-6 in terms of innings pitched. I then roll a six-sided die and the result is the pitcher that will go into the draft. Koufax had the most innings pitched for them, and the die result was a '1' so he has to go. no

It's kind of like a free agency situation. He's your ace guy, his contract is up, and you can't sign him because there's just not enough money to give him. I wish they could have kept him. Harrisburg would be looking really good this coming season if that was the case.

Wow. Allentown looks stacked -- and the pitching is not bad either!

Even though is a great replacement for LaJoie, Lajoie will be missed by the Electrics. Not much of a step down on offense, but on defense is where the difference will be noticed.

Red Roses look like they are ready to compete.

Let the games begin!
