Radio Days Baseball - Historical, Recalc League starting in 1930

Rather than continue to discuss the idea in the Historical League Part 2 thread, I figured it'd be good to start a thread for the league itself now that the essentials have been nailed down.

The league is Radio Days Baseball. I've added it to the homepage on my website though right now what's there is very bare bones.


  • League will be a historical, recalc-on league starting with the 1930 season.
  • Sims will be run each weekday morning, Monday thru Friday around 6 am ET.
  • Players will debut and retire according to history and enter the league via an annual draft.
  • Players miss seasons according to history (this will make the WWII era pretty interesting)
  • GMs will start the league with their team's actual 1930 roster
  • Recalc is on, based on 3 years, double weight to current season
  • All ratings are on 2-8 scale and based on neutralized stats
  • Coaches and scouts are off
  • Injuries set to Low
  • Suspensions on, drug suspensions off
  • Financial system is off
  • Spring training is off
  • All Star game is off until 1933
  • There will be a lottery to determine team assignments to allow everyone an equal chance at getting their first choice (details on this below).

GM List (updated as people sign up and originally based on the original thread):

Jestre*
DWK*
Bigdummie*
legendsport*
SilverSlugger*
MarkInCincy*
Abnerdoubleday
RayFleetwood*
devaneyfan*
Hrycaj*
deuelz*
rocknfire7*
tward13*
DDMartin*
sigbrat*
alanabel*

There were a few others who posted in the thread but never specifically said they were in. The seven people mentioned above are those who did state that they were in.

An asterisk indicates that a PM was sent and an account set up for the league on simsportleagues.com

How do I sign up?

The easiest thing is to post in this thread but you can PM me as well. For everyone who does sign up, I'll need you to PM me the following info so I can set you up with an account on the website & forum for the league:

Name (will also be your GM name in game), username, and preferred email address. You can also send over a password if you'd like, or I will make a temporary one for you to use. I stopped letting people sign themselves up because of spammers.

How do I pick my team?

I plan on using state lotteries to determine the order in which the GMs pick their franchise. Since there are teams that will undoubtedly draw more interest than others, the method outlined below will give everyone an equal shot at getting their first choice (though someone will obviously end up as the 'last man standing').

Each of the 16 GMs will be assigned a state and that state's lottery number in its Pick 4 evening game will determine the order (the winning numbers will be sorted low to high and the guy with the lowest number will get first choice of team)

The 16 state lotteries and their corresponding GMs:
Maine - Jestre
New Hampshire - DWK
Massachusetts - Bigdummie
Vermont - legendsport
New York - SilverSlugger
Rhode Island - MarkInCincy
Connecticut - Abnerdoubleday
New Jersey - RayFleetwood
Pennsylvania - devaneyfan
Delaware - Hrycaj
Maryland - deuelz
Virginia - rocknfire7
North Carolina - tward13
South Carolina - sigbrat
Georgia - alanabel
Florida - DD Martin

Each state's Pick-4 type game will be used. Evening drawing on the same day.

GMs can use the Lottery Post website to see all the results (Lottery Results (Winning Numbers) | Lottery Post)

I've replied to all the PMs I received. Jestre made an excellent point about the method his league used re: state lotteries. Instead of having guys pick a slot, we'll just assign a state to each guy and then sort the state lottery numbers to determine the order of selection.

So I will start slotting guys in beside a state as they sign up (and I will edit the first post accordingly).

We have 8 confirmed GMs and two others who posted in the original thread but have not yet sent a PM to set up their user accounts for the league.

So we have either six or, worst-case scenario, eight openings remaining.

We are at 11. Five openings remaining. I'm going to put out a call to the guys in my other leagues so hopefully that'll wrap up the recruiting.

So if anyone's been on the fence and wants to jump in, now's the time to get it done.

And we're full.

We'll use the Thursday 8/28 evening drawings in the various state lotteries to determine our "draft" order (we'll be selecting teams and starting with their stock rosters).

I just realized I never patched the game to 15.2.25 - that might be why you're having issues.

I have now patched and uploaded a new league file. Not sure if the original email quick codes will now work or if I need to send out a new batch.
