You might be able to find a mod that allows for female face gens somewhere! And yeah, it is hard to find the perfect way to bring them in. Possibly, you could include the granddaughter of a fan-favourite player down the line as a trial run?

But yes! Iona is here! Farel and Nimya are very proud of their baby.
Yes, I mostly try to keep my politics quiet here as I realize the baseball world tilts a bit more (well, a lot more) right than I do and I know that many of the folks here are heading well into middle age and beyond (I certainly am myself), a demographic that can tend to be a bit more traditional in its approach. (I noticed the level of agitation caused for some when something as minor happened as the Disabled List being re-named the Injured List.)
So, good to know there is at least one kindred spirit here.

And go Iona!

2049

Keesha DeWilliams became the first unanimous Hall of Fame inductee.

The 2049 no. 1 pick was Sam Nilsen out of Pepperdine, made by Huntington. She had gone 11-4 with a 2.31 but was best known for her controversial position as a pitcher on the men’s baseball team, as Pepperdine does not sponsor softball. Tam Bastian, the previous season’s first overall pick, went .310 in 48 games for Bristol.
Asheville won the East with 89 wins, two wins ahead of Charlotte. Richmond was the only other eastern team to make the postseason. Jasper broke out to win the Central Division with 90 wins to make their first postseason in franchise history. Once again, they were the only central team make the postseason. Lakewood took the #1 seed as they won the West with 102 wins. They were joined in the playoffs by Bakersfield, Provo and Seattle. However, Bakersfield, who finished second, still finished 16 games back of Lakewood.

Seattle made a statement as they upset Lakewood in a 2-0 upset of the top seed. Jasper also swept their opponents to progress further into their maiden postseason run. Asheville and Bakersfield both won in three games. Seattle continued their run, beating Bakersfield 3-1 in the semifinals. Meanwhile, Jasper’s Cinderella story came to an end as they were beaten by Asheville in five games. Seattle were denied a title as they squandered a 2-0 series, eventually losing the Abigail Lawlor Trophy Series in seven games.

Returning from injury, Elena Cortez took back her batting title, hitting .474. Behind her in second at .381 was her Georgia teammate Ruby O’Reilly. Darma Djajadiningrat of Portland, was crowned home run champion with 45. Jasper’s Wilhelmina Ogas, as part of their amazing season, was the RBI queen with 145. On the mound, Jo Stein led in ERA with 2.56 while Jo Gearhart (Jasper), Bea Petronio (Lakewood) and Stein shared the winningest pitcher title with 16 wins apiece. Charlotte’s Jessie Noland topped the Ks charts with 238 (Stein was second with 218).

Portland’s Manuela Macias won Rookie of the Year. The Cuban-born left-field free agent hit .288 and 20 home runs. Jo Stein won her first Madeeha Baqri Award thanks to her impressive season on the mound while Elena Cortez returned to the stage with her 7th DeWilliams Award.

Iona’s 2049

Iona Lukska enjoyed an improved sophomore year. After winning RoTY, she showed what she could do, hitting .291 with 20 home runs in the #5 spot for Hamilton. The Vibes fell two games short of the playoffs, impart due to losing 5 of their final 8 games of the season. However, Iona was enjoying her time in Ohio- it wasn’t the most vibrant place but she could travel around the state fairly easily and it wasn’t too much of a hassle to head home to see her parents in Massachusetts.

2050

2050 began with a 6-team expansion that surprised many. Rumours of bringing the league in line with the MLB had been circling since around 2045 but the decision to go ahead with it without much warning due come as a shock to a majority of fans and pundits.

In the East, franchises were added in Bar Harbor, Maine (the Acadias) and Daytona Beach, Florida (Zesty Oranges (picked after a fan vote, beating out the Party People). In the Central, teams in Winnipeg, Manitoba (the Eagles) and Rapid City, South Dakota (the Railroaders) were created. In the West, teams 29 and 30 were added in Pomona, California (the Peaches) and Tijuana, Baja California (the Gold Rush).

Jayla Van Iderstine and Kenya Burch were added to the Hall of Fame between the expansion announcement and the expansion draft.

The expansion draft took place on January 17th. With the first pick, Rapid City took Peri Ginola, a starting pitcher from Salisbury who had joined the league in 2038. The biggest move saw Fiona Hurd go to Pomona.

The Zesty Oranges chose Jewel Jacobs out of Wichita State first overall. Jacobs hit .305 for the Shockers in her senior year. Last year’s number 1 pick, Sam Nilsen, went 1-1 in 23 games for Huntington, earning an 8.30 ERA.

Richmond took the East with 98 wins. They were joined by Salisbury, Charlotte and Asheville in the playoffs. Bar Harbor made an impressive started to their franchise, finishing with a winning record (80-70) and 5th in the East division, though it was not good enough to make the postseason. Jasper once again won the Central, this year with 103 wins. Beaver also made it back to the postseason, winning 92 games. Lakewood won the West with a 100-50 record while Seattle also made the playoffs with 93 wins.

Jasper started strong once again, sweeping Beaver. Meanwhile, Salisbury also swept Richmond. Charlotte and Asheville won in three. Both semi-final series went the distance. Jasper improved on the previous season, making the final after beating Charlotte. Meanwhile Salisbury beat Asheville to face Jasper in the final. However, after trading wins in the first two games, Salisbury won the next three games to take the series.

Elena Cortez once again won the batting title, though with a down year in her terms with an average of .434. Marcia Colon was the home run queen with 45. Roberta Flores of Jasper lead the league in RBIs with 148. Hamilton’s Ahri Yamaguchi led in ERA with 2.11. Hunter Vowels was the winningest pitcher with 19 wins in 30 starts. Jessie Noland was the strikeout queen with 224.

Wichita’s Tomiko Hashimoto won Rookie of the Year, hitting .288 and 20 home runs. Victoria de Jesus, formerly of Wichita and now of Richmond, won the Madeeha Baqri Award. She pitched a 14-9 record with a 2.29 ERA and 222 Ks. Elena Cortez, unsurprisingly, won the DeWilliams Award for the eighth time. Along with her .434 average, she also hit 34 home runs and 119 RBIs.

Ma Price retired at the end of the season. The right-fielder joined the league in 2039 and played there until 2049 before playing her last season in Huntington. In 1584 games, she hit .325 along with 382 home runs and 1168 RBIs.

Iona’s 2050

Iona continued to play well as entered her third year in the league. While her average dropped from .291 to .284, she improved her home run tally for the third straight season, rising to 22. Her RBIs also rose, not quite to her RoTY level of 109 but up from 82 in 2049 to 99 this season. This was also the first season where Iona didn’t hit a triple- she had hit 6 in her rookie season and 2 a year later. The lack of playoff play was a little frustrating but she managed to push through it and just keep going. Hopefully one day Hamilton would break through.

2051

The Winnipeg Eagles began the draft by taking Rachel Hicks of Rock Hill High School in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Hicks hit .495 in her senior and had serious power and contact potential. The 2050 no. 1 pick, Jewel Jacobs, hit .228 in 78 games for the Zesty Oranges.

Asheville won the East, going 95-55 and beating Richmond by 2 games. Richmond were the only other eastern team to make the postseason. Beaver won the Central with 93 wins, beating out Hamilton by 1 game. Jasper, at 88-62, also made the playoffs. Lakewood took the #1 seed with 102 wins. They finished ahead of Seattle and Portland, who both made the playoffs.

Try as they might, Keesha DeWilliams’ Vibes couldn’t get past Asheville, being shutout twice as they were swept by their East Division opponents. Portland upset Lakewood in a sweep of their own while Beaver and Seattle also swept. Beaver denied the league with a PNW rivalry final as their beat Portland 3-1 in the semi-final. Seattle beat Asheville by the same score. Beaver came out swinging, cruising to a sweep.

Elena Cortez led in batting average once again, hitting .459. Millie Jonas was home run queen with 49 while Marcia Colon was best at brining them home with 140 RBIs. Hamilton’s Ahri Yamaguchi led in ERA with a 2.12 mark and also led in strikeouts with 222. Victoria de Jesus was the winningest pitcher with 22, the first 20+ season since 2047.

Charlotte’s Toshi Yanagisawa won Rookie of the Year, hitting .329 and 44 home runs. Victoria de Jesus retained the Madeeha Baqri Award with her 22 wins and 2.26 ERA. Elena Cortez won her 9th DeWilliams Award. After deliberation between the league’s administrators and Keesha DeWilliams, the MVP award was renamed the Cortez-DeWilliams award in recognition of the living legend that was Elena Cortez.

Iona’s 2051

Iona once again played well with Hamilton- .278 average and 22 home runs. She got her first taste of the playoffs as Hamilton qualified to the postseason. In the Vibes 2-0 first round loss to Asheville, she hit .375 in 8 at-bats. Her most impressive feat of the season was legging out a triple that she hit to third base, essentially pulling off an infield triple.

2052

Carla Vasquez joined the Hall of Fame.

Rapid City began the draft by selecting Christine ‘Jellyroll’ Jolly, a pitcher from Huntington High School in Shreveport, Louisiana. Jolly went 9-0 with a 0.09 ERA in 12 starts during her senior year. Rachel Hicks, Winnipeg’s first overall pick in 2051, did not play for the side last season.

Richmond won the East with 96 wins, 7 games ahead of second place Asheville. Third place Charlotte did make the playoffs with their 87 win season, 3 games back of Asheville. Hamilton finished the season with 96 wins, taking the Central division ahead of Huntington, who finished a game back of them. At 88-62, Beaver also made the postseason. In the West, Lakewood won with a 109 wins, their best record in franchise history and their fourth consecutive 100-win season. 23 games back, at 86-64, Anchorage slipped into the postseason as the 8th seed.

Lakewood and Beaver swept their first round opponents while Huntington and Charlotte won in three. However Lakewood were stunned in the semifinals, being swept by Huntington. Meanwhile, Beaver saw off Charlotte in four games. Emboldened by their upset win over Lakewood, Huntington won the trophy series in four games to take the title to West Virginia for the first time.

Once again, Elena Cortez won the batting title, although she dropped to a career low of .425. Charlotte’s Dyl Stebelton was the home run queen with 52 home runs. It was the first time since 2048 that the 50-home run mark had been broken. Cortez’s college teammate Ruby O’Reilly led the league in RBIs with 140. Cape Cod’s Fran Kroon led the league in ERA at 2.41. Huntington’s Belle Brodeur was the winningest pitcher with 19 in 31 starts. Rae Lopez was the strikeout queen with 220.

Saskatoon’s Maggie Pollitt won Rookie of the Year. The 26-year-old pitcher went 14-8 in her first year in the league, along with a 3.18 ERA. Anchorage’s Charlie Jones won the Madeeha Baqri Award with her 16-8 record and 2.48 ERA. Elena Cortez won her 10th MVP award, winning it in the first year that it also carried her name.

Iona’s 2052

Iona set new career bests for batting average and home runs in 2052 as she hit .293 and 30 home runs as Hamilton won the Central Division. However, they were swept by Beaver in the first round of the playoffs, making the second year in a row where they the Vibes left in the first round. This was also Iona’s most valuable season to date as she recorded a WAR of 6.0. While she was still under arbitration, Iona began to wonder about eventual free agency. She enjoyed working under Keesha DeWilliams but as much as they played for the love of the game, she wished they could take her talents a step further.

Minors

2053 marked the introduction of a minor league system. The players’ association had complained that the long-standing reserve roster rules allowed for teams to just stash players away under minimal contracts. Therefore, the league made changes and introduced two minor league teams for each WBLA team.
The WBLA Premier Minor League and WBLA Entry Minor League operated as equivalents to the MLB’s Triple A and Class A respectively. The Divisions of the league were named after WBLA legends. There was a minimum salary and benefits for the players in both leagues to safeguard against players being unable to afford to pursue their dream.

The WBLA Premier Minor League

The WBLAPML (or “the Prem”) saw the following teams formed to create the league

The Eischens Division (named for Billie Eischens):
Augusta Colts (Augusta, Georgia- affiliate of Roanoke)
Brampton Flight (Brampton, Ontario- affiliate of Winnipeg)
Buffalo Anchors (Buffalo, New York- affiliate of Wichita)
Greensboro Monsters (Greensboro, North Carolina- affiliate of Daytona Beach)
Lexington Hot Rods (Lexington, Kentucky- affiliate of Pomona)
Longueuil Bonnies (Longueuil, Quebec- affiliate of Saskatoon)
Louisville Golden Eagles (Louisville, Kentucky- affiliate of Bakersfield)
Lynwood-Pricedale Steelheads (Lynwood-Pricedale, Pennsylvania- affiliate of Bristol)
Northwest Harbor Raging Bulls (Northwest Harbor, New York- affiliate of Asheville)
Yonkers Prospects (Yonkers, New York- affiliate of Hamilton)

The Leachy Division (named for Belle Leachy):
Birmingham Pumas (Birmingham, Alabama- affiliate of Richmond)
Fordyce Assassins (Fordyce, Arkansas- affiliate of Provo)
Ft. Wayne War Eagles (Ft. Wayne, Texas- affiliate of New York)
Galveston Bass (Galveston, Texas- affiliate of Odessa)
Garland Steelhawks (Garland, Texas- affiliate of Beaver)
Lake of the Woods Generals (Lake of the Woods, Illinois- affiliate of Bar Harbor)
Lincoln Silver Wolves (Lincoln, Nebraska- affiliate of Charlotte)
New Orleans Eagles (New Orleans, Louisiana- affiliate of Vancouver)
Oakport Gray Sox (Oakport, Minnesota- affiliate of Hastings)
Shenandoah Alleycats (Shenandoah, Texas- affiliate of Salisbury)

The Baqri Division (named for Madeeha Baqri):
Aurora Admirals (Aurora, Colorado- affiliate of Lakewood)
Helena Aces (Helena, Montana- affiliate of Seattle)
Hermosillo Blue Falcons (Hermosillo, Sonora- affiliate of Tijuana)
Irving Explorers (Irving, California- affiliate of Portland)
Medford Thunder (Medford, Oregon- affiliate of Jasper)
Nampa Marauders (Nampa, Idaho- affiliate of Cape Cod)
Oakland Swarm (Oakland, California- affiliate of Huntington)
Riverside Foxes (Riverside, California- affiliate of Twin Falls)
San Jose Blue Wahoos (San Jose, California- affiliate of Rapid City)
Whitehorse Stallions (Whitehorse, Yukon- affiliate of Anchorage)

The WBLA Entry Minor League

Better known as ‘rookieball’, the WBLAEML contains another thirty teams in three divisions named after Hall of Famers Taylor DeVos, AJ Timan and Alex Quirk. While I won’t list all thirty teams here (unless people really want them), it should be noted that Puerto Rico was awarded its first team as San Juan became the host of Daytona Beach’s EML team.

2053

Jay Manley, Breanna Dudley and Ronda Olague all joined the Hall of Fame.
Bar Harbor took Brienne Taylor from Tombstone High School in Tombstone, Arizona with the first overall pick. The shortstop had hit .509 in a state championship winning senior year. Last year’s 1st overall, Christine Jolly, did not pitch for Rapid City during the 2052 season.

Bristol won the East with an 87-63 record. This marked the first time they had made the playoffs since 2042 and their first winning season since 2044. They were the only team from the East to make it through to the playoffs, despite Asheville only finishing three games back of them. This was because Saskatoon and Wichita had 90+ win seasons in the Central, with Saskatoon winning the division after a tie-break match with Wichita. Jasper, who finished on 87 wins, also made the playoffs. In the West, Seattle won the division with 91 wins. However, only four games separated them and 4th place Anchorage. Lakewood, Provo and Anchorage rounded out the playoffs.

Bristol announced their return to the postseason by sweeping Seattle. Lakewood also swept Provo while Wichita and Saskatoon won in three. However in turn, Lakewood swept Bristol while Saskatoon did the same to Wichita. Lakewood’s strong form continue as they won the first three games of the Abigail Lawlor Trophy Series before dropping game four to Wichita. However, they bounced back and took game five to win the title.

New York’s Dede Carruthers took the batting title with .403. Elena Cortez didn’t appear in the top seven as a hamstring injury side-lined the living legend for six weeks and while she finished the season on .422, she only appeared in 80 games and was therefore ineligible for the batting title. Meanwhile Jasper’s Kelly Lasky lead in both home runs (52) and RBIs (172). On the mound, Bea Sherman of Hamilton had the best ERA at 2.61 while Jo Gearhart was once again the winningest pitcher with 18 wins. She shared that title with Vi Gonzalez of Provo. Asheville’s Victoria Hernandez was the strikeout queen with 210.

Charlotte’s June Martinez was named Rookie of the Year, hitting .302 and 44 home runs. Charlie Jones won her second Madeeha Baqri Award, with a 17-8 record and a 2.96 ERA. With Elena Cortez injured, Sian Mathis with a .378 average and 50 home runs did enough to secure the Cortez-DeWilliams Award.

Buffalo (Wichita’s affiliate) won the first edition of the Prem while Chula Vista (Charlotte’s affiliate) won the first season of rookieball.

Iona’s 2053

Iona hit well once again, earning an average of .289, 32 home runs (a new career best), 114 RBIs (another career best). Hamilton missed the playoffs once again but Iona didn’t mind. 2053 was her final year of arbitration and she would most likely test free agency at the end of 2054.

2054

Bab White and Sophie Thieman became the latest Hall of Fame inductees.
Jay-Jay Moore was the first overall draft pick, taken by Winnipeg. Moore had excelled for the University of Michigan. 2053 first round draft pick, Brienne Taylor, spent her first year in the league in Bar Harbor’s minor league, playing 39 games in Washingtonville and 47 in Lake of the Woods.

Charlotte won the East division with 96 wins, beating out Cape Cod (92 wins) and Bristol (88 wins). Jasper won 88 games, good enough to win the Central division. They were joined in the postseason by Huntington, who finished a game back of them in the regular season standings. Anchorage took the West Division with 87 wins with Seattle also making the playoffs with 85 wins.

Charlotte, Bristol and Cape Cod all swept while Jasper beat Anchorage in 3. In the semifinals, Cape Cod beat Bristol 3-1 while Charlotte came from behind twice in their series to beat Jasper 3-2. Cape Cod swept, taking home their first title since 2024 in their first postseason since 2047.

Elena Cortez took home the batting title with a season average of .446. Rain Harmon of Twin Falls set a new single-season home run record as she hit 62. The record had stood since 2039, when Carla Vasquez hit 60. Sian Mathis led the league in RBIs with 142. On the mound, Portland’s Brandy Prince led in ERA, setting a mark of 2.54. She also led in strikeouts with 206. The winningest pitcher was Rapid City’s Kel Shelton, who notched 19 wins in 29 starts.

Richmond’s Demeter Usoltev, a Belarusian free agent, won Rookie of the Year with a .308 average. Usoltev became the first outfield Rookie of the Year to hit 0 home runs in their winning campaign. Brandy Prince won the Madeeha Baqri Award for her league-leading ERA and strikeouts. Elena Cortez won her 11th Cortez-DeWilliams Award.

The Whitehorse Stallions (Anchorage) won the Prem while the Laredo Purple Aces (Wichita) won rookieball.

Iona’s 2054

Iona hit .289 for the second consecutive year but only managed 19 home runs and 64 RBIs. Speed training in the offseason paid off as she set a new personal-best with 17 stolen bases. Hamilton missed the playoffs and come the offseason, Iona rejected a qualifying offer from the Vibes and opted to test free agency. On January 7th, Iona signed an 8-year contract with the Charlotte Valiant worth $404.5 million. With Charlotte having been runners up in 2054, Iona was ready to do some damage.

2055

The Winnipeg Eagles began the draft by taking Dolly Summers out of UCF. The starting pitcher went 12-1 with a 1.26 ERA in her senior year. Their 2054 first overall pick, Jay-Jay Moore, spent the entire season at Winnipeg’s rookieball affiliate in Gatineau, Quebec. She hit .300 for the team.

Richmond won the East with 94 wins, beating Charlotte to the division title by one game. Three other teams from the East (Bristol, New York and Cape Cod) also made the playoffs. Huntington dominated with a 103-win season. They were joined in the postseason by Beaver. Provo won the West at 88-63, winning a tie-break fixture against Anchorage. The Utah-based team were the only West Division team to make the postseason.

Huntington, Bristol and New York all swept while Cape Cod beat Richmond in three. Both semi-final series went the distance, with Huntington and New York winning their respective series 3-2. Huntington won swept New York in the trophy series, meaning it had now been 22 years since New York had won it all.
While Elena Cortez lead once again in batting average (.437), there was a tie for home run champion. Both Kelly Lasky and Sian Mathis hit 53 during the season. However, Mathis’ 163 RBIs were enough for her to take that title for herself. Andi Carnini of Huntington was the best pitcher by ERA at 2.43 as well as the winningest pitcher with 22 in 30 starts. Pomona Laney Modugno was the strikeout with 192.

Huntington’s Hannah Ming won Rookie of the Year (as well as WBLA semifinals MVP). The Taiwanese-American hit .311 with 31 home runs. Andi Carnini won the Madeeha Baqri Award while Elena Cortez won her 12th MVP award.

The biggest retirement was Marcia Colon, who retired at the age of 38 after 2603 games. She hit .356 in her career and won the 2042 MVP award.

Ft Wayne (New York) won the Prem while the Spokane Dukes (Hastings) won the Rookieball.

There was one final piece of tragic news. On January 5th, Elena Cortez was involved in a significant car accident while driving through Kansas. No timetable was set on her return, given the severity of her injuries.

Iona’s 2055

Iona’s first season in Charlotte saw her earn her hefty free agent price tag. She hit .298 with 20 home runs and 106 RBIs as Charlotte reached the semifinals of the playoffs. However, for whatever reason, Iona was omitted from Charlotte’s playoff roster. Despite this setback, she settled in well with her new team, now wearing no. 11 as opposed as the no. 1 jersey she had worn in Hamilton.

Saskatoon finished with 92 wins, beating Beaver to the Central Division title by one game. Huntington also made the playoffs. Portland won the West, also with 92 wins, but were the only team from the division to progress. Asheville’s 89 wins was the cut-off point, with Anchorage falling a game short.

Charlotte were the only team to sweep in their first round series as they sent Saskatoon packing. Bristol, Beaver and Portland were the winners in the three series that went the distance. Bristol swept Beaver while Charlotte beat Portland 3-1 to set up an all-East division Abigail Lawlor Trophy Series. The teams traded wins back and forth before Bristol broke out in games 5 and 6 to win their first title since 2030.

With Elena Cortez out, Laney Marsh of Bristol took the batting title with a .396 average. Meanwhile, Jessie Jones of Huntington lead in home runs (54) and RBIs (154).

Meg Sinatra and Alba Duran were both elected to the Hall of Fame.

Daytona Beach began the draft by selecting starting pitcher Justice Pease out of UC Davis. Pease went 10-3 with a 2.24 ERA in 18 starts. Erica Buck, the 2056 no. 1 pick, spent her first season primarily in the prem. She went 7-5 with the Augusta Colts.

Elena Cortez, now playing for Daytona Beach, returned for opening day. The living legend went 0-3 with a walk in 7-3 road loss to Odessa.

The Bristol Bears won the East Division with 92 wins. Richmond, New York, Asheville and Charlotte also made the playoffs. Beaver, with 89 wins, were the only team from the Central Division to make the postseason. Anchorage went 90-60 to win the West Division while Portland rounded out the playoff picture.
Richmond and Anchorage swept in the first round while Bristol and Beaver needed three games to defeat their opponents. Anchorage once again swept while Bristol-Richmond went the distance, with Richmond knocking off the top seed. It was an easy win for Anchorage, racing out to a 3-0 lead before going on to win their first title with a 4-1 series victory.

Elena Cortez came back in style, picking up where she left off with a league-leading batting average of .409. Pomona’s Charlie Jackson led the league in home runs with 59 while Sian Mathis was the RBI queen with 152. Ahri Yamaguchi had the league’s best ERA with 2.88. Qi Lui of Beaver was the winningest pitcher with 17 wins in 30 starts. Jess Tennison of Provo had 211 strikeouts, best in the league.

Effy Calzada of Bristol won rookie of the year with a .324 average and 24 home runs. Ahri Yamaguchi won the Madeeha Baqri Award while Elena Cortez returned to her position as the undisputed Cortez-DeWilliams legend, hitting 25 home runs along with her .409 batting average.

Iona’s 2057

Iona hit .278, up from .268 in 2056, along with 19 home runs and 78 RBIs. Despite Charlotte’s first round loss, Iona hit .400. While not lighting the league on fire, Iona was more than justifying the payday Charlotte gave her that extends through till 2062.
