PEBA : the immersive, fictional, writing-friendly league has openings! (moving to 18 in offseason)

ONE OF OOTP'S MORE IMMERSIVE LEAGUES HAS OPENINGS!







PEBA is a dynasty report and online league, all rolled into one!
Check out our website for latest league-wide news!



PEBA, a storied and prolific league, has a few openings and we are looking for active GM's who enjoys providing updates on their team's progress :

- about their team

- or the league environment

- fiction peripherally related to the league

- Hemingway-esque international intrigue with a side of sabrmetric analysis

- ...umm, theology(?)

...or a whole host of random other stuff.

Are you that GM? Then PEBA is for you!

The 2025 Rodriguez Cup, the PEBA's final series, recently concluded, with Florida defeating cross-league rival Crystal Lake for the championship ...and a handful of teams are looking for new GM's to build towards the future! It is a perfect time to jump in! (see below for list of available teams)

OOTP Version: 18
Format: Fictional
First Season: 2007
Current Season: 2026 Spring Training
Days Per Sim: 7
Sims Per Week: 2-3

Our goal is to create an immersive and highly entertaining fictional baseball environment. We welcome any owner who enjoys contributing to that goal regardless of experience level. If you're an enthusiastic OOTP newbie or a seasoned vet looking for a new group of friendly people to compete against, the PEBA may be the perfect landing spot for you!

-----

League Origin Story


The year was 2007, and America was starved for its National Pastime. The PED Scandal and greed on all fronts broke the nations trust in Major League Baseball, and an Institution of well over 100 years folded up shop and closed their doors. In came John Rodriguez, Sr and a group of wise business men who brought baseball back to the forefront – eschewing the big city lights and bringing the game back to the people.

It's hard to believe that was over 18 years ago.

Since it opened its doors, PEBA has had its share of controversy and tragedy; dynasty and Cinderella. It’s the home to ‘Fireworks’, ‘Tugboat’, ‘El Chupacabra’ and ‘Moon Dog’. It is a shared dynasty of 26 like-minded souls who have crafted a universe – a PEBAverse, like none other – and now you can become part of that legend.


What We're Like


League Structure

Each major league team has 4 minor league affiliates (AAA, AAA, full season A, short season A)

Four feeder leagues: 2 college (1 international and one US), and 2 high school (again, 1 international and one US)

4 independent AI leagues.

Playoff Structure

10 teams make the playoffs (3 division winners and 2 wild cards in each league)

Division Winners in each league advance directly to the Division Series.

Wild Card round is best of 5; divisional, league championship, and Rodriguez Cup each best of 7.


The PEBA is a unique participation-based league – we pride ourselves with quality writing that not only covers the game, but takes us out of the dugout and, at times, into the sublime. Two sims a week means we move fast enough to enjoy ourselves, but give you enough breathing space to explore the depths of your team. Nowhere else do you find a GM running his club from a mental hospital, a team broadcaster heading to a foreign land to rekindle his game – only to be hunted for drug smuggling, a team hiring a GM and world-travelling manager, both trying to revive 'dead ball' baseball in modern times, and a pair of buddies heading out on the road to visit every ball park – and ending up becoming a real life published book! We use a Contribution Points reward system that allows members to make teams their own – be it through ballpark adjustments, sending players to winter ball to ‘hone their skills’, or simply giving your favorite player a nickname – Just ask Michel ‘Train Arollin’ Provost about that!


Our goal is to produce an environment that reflects realism. We play with Coaching and Scouting ON. Make personnel decisions that matter and prepare for the "fog of war" when judging prospects! It will be your skill and keen eye for talent that will separate you from the pack. Every GM has to rely on his scout’s opinion and his own gut feeling – everyone has their own opinion about a player – no cookie-cutter ratings here! Do you like to trade? Our bustling trade environment shows that if you can't swing a trade here, you can't swing a trade anywhere!


As part of our participation concept, we conduct our winter meetings and amateur draft live in our unique chat room. Shoot the breeze with your fellow GMs or lay the groundwork for that blockbuster deal. We have been fortunate to attract a quality group of friendly owners – a stable core group that has been together long enough to create an extremely rewarding environment, and now you can find out why for yourself!

We're always interested in getting to know more like-minded individuals with an interest in joining in our fun and would love to hear from you.

Available Teams

Kalamazoo Badgers
Location: Kalamazoo, Michigan
2025 Team Record : 86-76
Home Stadium : Portage Park (capacity: 42,300)
(click above for team report)




Kalamazoo kept division rivals (and league powerhouse) Crystal Lake in their sights with
three second-place finishes to open their PEBA tenure, but soon the Badgers failed
to finish above .500, as the General Manager seat for the team became a revolving door.
Harry Bell, owner of Bell's Brewery, the team's outspoken owner, was vociferous in relating
his displeasure over the team’s failure to take steps forward. According to him, the team needed
stability in the front office to reach it's potential. Eventually, they found their man.

For the past 11 seasons the Badgers, lead by new GM Cole Hobson, began to carve themselves
into a contender. The team featured a balance of both offensive power and pitching prowess which
carried them up the standings. It was a never say die, tough-as-nails, lunch pail sort of team
which was able to give a solid product year in and year out and became a fixture in the division race.
From 2020 to 2025, the team finished with a winning record in four of the six seasons,
including a playoff appearance in 2021. After that initial taste, the team ramped up spending
in order to make playoff baseball a regular occurance.

This season, the team was competitive again, and missed out on a Wild Card spot by only one game.
The team sits on solid financial footing, with lots of wiggle room to mould them into a true contender.
Now, the General Manager seat for this scrappy team is available. Are you the GM to push them into the playoffs?

Fun Fact: During the franchise’s formation, the Badgers’ logo went through 67 iterations before the
current version was chosen.

-----

Okinawa Shisa
Location: Naha, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan
2025 Team Record : 68-94
Home Stadium : Shisa Stadium II (capacity: 55,000)
(click above for team report)




Okinawa, located on an island in a far-flung corner of southern Japan, is the most
isolated franchise in the PEBA. In terms of sports, people in the capital city of Naha bleed Okinawa baseball!
Reclusive 72-year-old owner Iyou Seigyoki, the founder of the Nyu Gijutsu Toiretta washlet
company, is known for his eccentricity and stern temperament. He is also one of the most
independently wealthy owners in Japanese baseball. Despite this, Okinawa always maintained a relatively frugal
budget, which has led some fans to suggest that Seigyoki cared more about his toilets than his team.


In 2015, the team's salary in the Japanese LRS ballooned to $45 million, far greater than any in
team history. Thanks to the pitching of Alberto Ramon and Naomichi Nakagawa, the team became a perennial
playoff contender in the LRS, making the post-season in the league's last six seasons, from 2015 to 2020.
However, they never quite captured the league's crown.

In 2021, the team, backed by long-time GM Morris Ragland, was absorbed into the larger PEBA, giving them
a new challenge. As part of the deal, the LRS teams kept their rosters, and would have to now compete with
the best baseball teams in the world... not an easy task. But, the perseverant little island
rose to the challenge, and Mr. Seigyoki opened his pocketbook just a little bit more, to ensure the team
had healthy funds to use. Thanks to the team's management and the available funds, the team
clawed their way back to competitiveness, producing a winning record in 2024.
The team is now well-established in the league, and has a healthy mid-range budget to work with.

With GM Ragland's appointment as PEBA's new Commissioner after the 2025 season,
the team is looking for a new GM that can take them to the playoffs and become
the first former Japanese LRS team to capture professional baseball's ultimate prize!

Fun Fact: The wild and unpredictable weather in the Okinawa region of Japan is legendary.
In order to remedy this, the team is now one of only five PEBA teams to play their games
inside a retractable roof stadium (the others being Fargo, London, Reno and Shin Seiki).

-----

San Antonio Calzones of Laredo
Location: Laredo, Texas
2025 Team Record : 71-91
Home Stadium : Elysian Fields (capacity: 43,000)
(click above for team report)




When Mötley Crüe frontman Nikki Sixx’s bid to bring an inaugural PEBA franchise to San Jose faltered,
B.H. Transportation Co. owner (and truck driver himself) Cledus “Snowman” Snow stepped in and
founded the Calzones within a mile of his company’s corporate headquarters. Finding the formula for
success under the baking Texas sun has not been easy for the Calzones. San Antonio endured three
consecutive seasons of 104 or more losses from ’11-‘13. In the last year of that stretch, fans made their
dissatisfaction with the team’s direction known by refusing to attend games until signs of progress
appeared. The team responded with a series of roster and coaching staff shake-ups. The moves may
have worked – San Antonio has slowly but surely been improving their record since that disastrous 2013 season.

"Trader Matt" Higgins, the team's original General Manager, was renowned for his
wheelings and dealings. No PEBA team completed nearly as many trades as 'Trader Matt'. As they
say, “If you don’t like the weather in Laredo, just wait a few minutes. You’ll probably be traded
elsewhere by then.”

After the 2019 season, 'Trader Matt' moved to the Kwaguchi Transmitters in Japan, in a bid to
start fresh when the LRS merged with the PEBA.

Meanwhile, the Calzones thought outside the box and in 2020, hired only
the third European GM in league history: Simon Kuliszewski of Poland.
This quiet, intelligent GM added stability and a willingness to build from within, on top of his
still-prolific propensity for trades. The team quickly became playoff challengers,
and hovered close to the wild card race for the past few seasons.
After the 2025 season, the GM seat has become available for this solid PEBA team.

-----

Scottish Claymores
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
2025 Team Record : 66-96
Home Stadium : The Castle (capacity: 35,000)
(click above for team report)




The team now known as the Scottish Claymores began life halfway across the world in the Japanese
LRS league, as the 'Fushigi Yigi Celestial Warriors'. A respectable club, they won the Japanese
championship twice, in 2010 and 2018. But in 2021, in order to create a true 'worldwide' league,
the PEBA and LRS merged, and the team decided to move to the USA in order to ensure future growth.

That year, the team settled in Dayton, Ohio as the 'Dayton Flyers', and prepared to take on
the best baseball teams in the world. However, the team inherited their LRS roster, and growing pains
were expected. The limited resources in Dayton meant that the team was never able to financially grow
past a modest 50-60 million dollar player payroll, and thus struggled to keep up.

One man who believed in the team was Philadelphia businessman Sam Hayes. After the 2023 season, he
bought the team, and negotiated to relocate them to Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh. As crazy
as the idea sounds, the UK had already become baseball fans over the past two decades
thanks to the PEBA's London Underground (who even captured Europe's first PEBA title in 2018).
The team plays out of "The Castle"; a stadium that holds a modest number of fans, but
their home field is a middle-age-style stone structure that needs to be seen to be be believed!

The team is craving for an enthusiastic GM that wants to get this team off the ground, and
show the league (and especially their rivals in London!) what Scottish baseball can look like!

Fun Fact: When they introduce players on opening day, they are all dressed in proper Scottish
kilts, giving photographers a chance to snap some unique group pictures. Of course, to avoid
any wardrobe malfunctions, they quickly change back to a full baseball uniform before the game begins!

-----

Toyama Wind Dancers
Location: Toyama, Toyama Prefecture, Japan
2025 Team Record : 79-83
Home Stadium : Castle of Cagliostro (capacity: 59,000)
(click above for team report)




The Toyama Wind Dancers might have one of the strangest background stories of any of the 26 PEBA franchises. The team began in
Japan's top-tier "League of the Rising Sun", or LRS, in 2007 as the Lupin Cliff Hangers. They started strongly in the
first few years, but then went through a horrid decade and became better known amongst Japanese baseball fans for their
garish multicolored uniforms and odd ownership group than their play on the field. The Cliff Hangers, despite being located
in the city and prefecture of Toyama, were actually named after Lupin Ltd., a pharmaceutical company located in Mumbai, India, which owned the team.

After a decade of ineffective play, the team brought in an enthusiastic new GM, Ron Collins, to turn the team around. In 2019,
the team finally qualified for the LRS post-season again, and in the last LRS season in 2020, the team captured the Neo-Tokyo Cup!

In 2021, the Japanese league was absorbed into the larger, US/Euro-based PEBA to create one truly worldwide baseball entity.

Since the teams in Japan retained their comparatively modest LRS rosters as part of the merger, this would have been a tough transition for any
team, and Lupin was no exception; losing 103 games in their first PEBA season. But, thanks to GM Collins' clever work
in the front office, the team finished with two consecutive 98-win seasons in both 2023 and 2024.
In order to be taken more seriously and shed their cartoonish image, the team was renamed the Toyama Wind Dancers three years ago,
and adopted a new white/brown/maroon color scheme. You could say the team is now "growing up", as they become a force in
PEBA's competitive Rising Sun division.

The team is now looking for a new General Manager! The door is open for someone new to take over this unique (and currently competitive)
team in PEBA!

PEBA is a fantastic long running league with a deep history and a stable of long standing and dedicated GM's.

I've played in the league for several years and it continues to be a blast.

The live "Winter Meetings" event is coming up on 9-9. We usually get a majority of the GM's together in the same chat room for high speed wheeling and dealing. We've had as many as 20 trades spawn from that event, if I am remembering correctly.

So now is a perfect time to join up. You won't regret it.
