Introducing the British Baseball Association


Currently, the BBA is looking for new GMs who are looking for more than just exporting.

Join us in the great endeavor of baseball in Great Britain. In our alternate history, the wealthy Scottish McAndrews family returns to their home after living in the United States for a decade. In 1899, Thomas McAndrews inherited his father's fortune, teaches his employees how to play baseball, and the sport spreads in the kingdom.

Seven years later, the British Premier League started with nine teams. The league expanded to 24 teams over the next 20 years with a break during WW1, and the decision was made to split the league into Premier League and Championship League, and form the British Baseball Association.


After a rocky start in which we only simmed twice a week to give everyone the opportunity to create content, we want to focus more on the game, and therefore we added the Wednesday sim. Nonetheless, our wiki still delivers the core of the league and will play a crucial part. Also, the podcast will hopefully be ready in the next few weeks.

You will jump in for our 1928 season, the first season with two leagues. Some teams have a deep history, as the BPL took off in 1906. The draft is about to happen which will give our new members a good chance to form the future of the desired team.


Complete list of teams

Available:
Birmingham Rifles
Unfortunately and surprisingly neglected by the former GM. Needs a lot of work but has a decent base for a rebuild. And being last of the lower tier, things can only get better.

Bristol AC 1923
Bristol is one of the newest teams. Formed in 1923, joined the BBA in 1925, relegated in 1927. But like a few other teams, they fight a tough battle for promotion.

Cardiff SC 1899
One of the two teams out of Cardiff. They made the playoffs from 1906-1908 and won the trophy in the last year. In 1915, they entered the playoffs again, but the war stopped their carefully planned future. From 1921-1924, they were a contender again. Now, they're almost in the relegation zone.

Derry BC 1920
A strong minor league team and among the teams that are candidates for a possible promotion.

Glasgow Lowlanders
The Lowlanders are a quite successful team of the early days. Seven straight playoffs since 1906 with two McAndrews' trophies. It took more than ten years for their first and last playoff run after 1912. This season they're on track to the playoffs.

Leeds Owls
The former Athletics were THE surprise in 1927. Coming back from two losing seasons since they joined the league, they first magically made it to the playoffs and then swept all opponents, including the 1926 champs and favorites, the Nottingham Reds.

Liverpool BC 1909
Liverpool joined the league in 1911 and finished the first season with a laughable 6-84 record. Right after the Great War, they had three winning records, including winning the regular season in 1922. This year could change dramatically as Liverpool is sharing the bottom of the BPL with Sheffield and Leeds.

London Arsenal FC
Started off as a pure baseball club, the LBC was bought by a famous football club. Obviously, this helped. The club could promote by the end of the season but will face a grim future if it doesn't fix the farm.

Manchester Bees
A BPL team since 1906, the Bees look back at six playoff seasons and one championship in 1913. Manchester has the second-best farm and is ranked fourth in the BPL standings.

Newcastle BC 1902
Newcastle only made the playoffs once in 1913. Twelve years later they achieved their best record but failed to join the postseason. This season they're just a half game behind Aberdeen and the playoffs.

Oxford Scholars
Formed by the famous Oxford University in 1896, the Scholars belong to the founding members of the BPL. Just before WW1, they qualified for the playoffs twice, but their prime was in the four years after the war. Three playoffs, two championships. Can they win it again in 1928?

South Wigan BC 1924
An expansion team that is on a good way to end up in the promotion run.

Sunderland Navigators
One of the founding members. Four playoff runs with one championship in 1911. The glory days are over though. After an unlucky relegation (.500 record), the Navigators will have to find a way against strong competition to make it back to the BPL.

Love this concept and the groundwork already behind it. A few questions:

I don't see much activity on the forum (trades and trade block). Are these things maintained on your slack?
What are the requirements, if any, for writing wiki articles?

Originally, we planned on only using Slack but we’re slowly bringing people on the boards. I think it will mainly be used for news articles though.

As for Wiki Articles, we don't have many requirements. If you have an idea for a story, write it. If someone started a story, don't delete or edit it, but expand the backstory.

Some spring cleaning and we have a whole bunch of teams vacant...
