Big Ed's 3001 Page
A quick synopsis: As with the OOSL, the 3001 Leagues bring baseball players from 1875 to 1996 together to compete against each other in two Leagues. The most sophisticated baseball computer simulation is used to magickly bring all of it to glorious life. Owners can trade players, make lineups, make rotations, and generally do everything that Owners, General Managers and Field Managers do in real life. The biggest difference between the OOSL and the 3001 Leagues is that the OOSL uses Normalized statistics while the 3001 Leagues use historical data. Normalized stats are historical stats that have been adjusted across the decades to level the playing field. Historical stats take into consideration only those years the players actually played. To put it another way - The 3001 Leagues see players compete with the equipment they actually used, so some play without gloves, catcher's equipment, and other things we take for granted. The OOSL gives all the players the same modern equipment.
There are two Leagues in the 3001 Leagues - the Federal and the Union Leagues. Each has two divisions of ten teams. Each team has a roster of 40 players drafted from the entirety of Major League history (1876-1996). Eligible players had at least 50 IP (30 IP for Closers) and 100 AB (50 AB for Catchers). The "CH" stats used are the averages of each players best 10 years, or the average of all their years if they played less than ten.
