two questions

1) If you are running a historical league with all of the various settings geared towards as-realistic-as-possible results (recalc on, development off, positions/roles based upon reality, etc.), is there any point to having Spring Training, other than for the pure thrill - if you're into that - of it? Does it increase the chance of injuries?

2) With historical players, if you decide to have one level of minors (one team per major league team) instead of reserve rosters, does it matter what level (AAA, AA, A, etc.) of minors you assign your single minor league? After all, it's just a bunch of reserve-level players playing against each other. Without either player creation or the AI needing to evaluate and move players between levels, would the level itself make any difference?

OK, that's four questions... Thanks in advance...

1. Players definitely are at risk to injury during ST as they're considered rusty. So you're probably right, not much point in ST in this case.

2. The level of minors won't matter, especially since you're playing with recalc.

I usually turn spring off when running historical league. Ive never been a fan of spring training in historical leagues. If you want to simulate the chance of a player getting injured why not simulate him getting injured on christmas vacation. Now if your in a historical league i can see that but not if your just commish for a solo league. It might be ok if you have recal off. I know for sure i wouldnt run it with 19th century leagues as you need every player healthy in the league as can be or you might run into a not enough players on a roster by opening day.

Never thought of turning injuries off during ST. But yeah you cant risk it especially if you have recalc on and ST is almost cosmetic.

Yeah, cause humans are perfect in the spring and never get hurt. *sarcasm off*. If I'm running a historical league, solo or not, and I commish an online historical league, I have spring training because it's part of the game. If players get injured, well, too bad.

That may be true but there arent enough players in the 19th century to risk it. Sometimes its hard enough to get through a season with out a team running short of players because of injuries. But its still fun to have that small what if even if your using real trades and everything.
