AL vs NL Offense comparison.

A few years back (OOTP12) I did a historical replay that began in 1906 and I made it to 1936 before the new version of the game came out and I moved on to something else. This league was played with recalc off and player development on, but with random talent change lowered significantly.

One of the things I noticed right away when playing this replay was that the National League always trailed the American League when it came to offense. Often the AL would have a batting champion hit .320-.360 when the NL would have it's leader hit .310 or lower. The leaderboard would often display guys in the .290's as only a few hitter were over .300. Needless to say, in the end most of the Hall of Fame players would end up being guys that played the majority of their careers in the AL.

A few months ago I started another similar replay using OOTP14. Once again recalc is off and development is on. This time I started in 1904 and used a draft(last time I left players on their original teams). Once again, I am seeing the AL rank superior in offense over the NL. Ty Cobb is in the NL this go around and he is always among the leaders in hitting, but more often than not he finishes the season somewhere between 290-300. Meanwhile, Home Run Baker and Tris Speaker in the AL are hitting .330 or higher. RBI's are also a AL dominant stat. With Home Run Baker driving in 120+ plus in 1909 and 10. 1910 seen 3 players in the AL drive in over 100. Meanwhile, it's been years since anyone in the NL has done so.

Just wondering if anyone else has witnessed this in their leagues. I may very well be a non recalc thing. I'm not complaining or saying this is a huge issue, I just find it interesting.

I had seen this in my EBL league 2003-2014. Now I do have a fair amount of custom players but they are spread throughout both league. NL hitters tended to hit more HR because the NL had the smaller parks. LA Coliseum, Tiger Stadium, an old New Orleans park, Old Busch, Baker Bowl. only big park 2004-2008 was Seals Stadium which was great for triples & doubles. AL had Old Comiskey, Candlestick, Big A in Anaheim, Olympic Stade, Forbes (where HR go to die), Texas Stadium, Baker Bowl was AL 2004-2008 NL 2009 - 2011.
pitchers in the AL had lower ERA's. SB were higher in the, AL as the AL had fewer C's with an arm better then a 6. NL had 2 10 C's. 1 8 and 3 7's 2003 - 2018.
Didn't the AL 1904-1920 have the smaller parks? What do the ERA's look like for NL & AL during those years in your league?

At work. I will check that when I get home. I do know that the big 2 Matthewson and Johnson are in the NL. This is a historical league with a twist type deal. As I said, I'm using development. I also have pitcher fatigue set to low (1.000 as the stamina modifier) and I'm using 5 man rotations/start highest rested with modern style bullpens. Gosh how I love this game.

I use normal even for 2019 MLB and my EBL is set to 1989 which is currently Normal. I believe it switches to low in 1993. I have both Mathewson and Johnson on the 1909 White Sox.
