I had the same thing happen. I'm up to 1950 and Ruth - after being traded to the Pirates for a pitcher who played for four years before being out of the league - ended up as a platoon player (if that) and retired after the 1937 season with just 212 homeruns. This doesn't really bother me though.

On the other hand, Lou Gehrig retired after the 1945 season with 4220 hits, 738 homers (most in the league by about 150), 2553 rbi, 2685 runs, 2411 walks, and a .364 career average. He also accumulated 12 MVP awards, a rookie of the year, 5 world series titles, and several gold gloves.

I noticed from Bruce's spreadsheet that a couple teams changed stadiums in 1902 - how do we add new stadiums to the game?

Also, I noticed a couple teams changed their nicknames, is there an update to the historical ID when this happens or do they remain the same unless noted in the online spreadsheet?

1. In "Game Setup", League Setup, there is a tab located bottom right corner titled "Other Functions". You can edit ballparks in here. Not sure if you can construct new ones or not.

2. Nickname changes do not effect the historical ID. You can change those to anything you like as often as you like.

When you do this, does the player card show pitching and hitting career stats, or just whatever he currently is ?

When does the importing of rookies happen? I am at spring training and there are no new players imported. I am using AROD/Garlan and I have changed the path to find the file but I have no new players in the league.

Tigerfan or anyone else... Is there anyway to release all players then hold a fantasy/inaugural draft before I start simming?

Thanks.

In "Game Setup", "League Options", bottom right, centre tab named "Financial Functions". There is an option to "Release all players, Clear Rosters."

OK, so if it seems like that didn't happen how do I go back/rectify the situation?

More questions. In 1902, some players, mostly rookies have no ratings at certain skills such as contact, or if a pitcher say movement. Yet if I click on the editor tab I see ratings. I must be missing something obvious.

Should I expect ratings at all spots in the Player ratings view?

I believe "scouting" is turned on.

You can't go back (without restarting this league). What you could try is to take a backup of the league folder and quick sim through to next year and check again. Because there are no notifications, you do need to check teams rosters to find them. If it doesn't work again, you have some option wrong somewhere (or one of the users who just seems to be having problems with historical imports?)

Damn, that stinks. I wonder what went wrong. I don't think I changed any of Tigerfan's settings. I guess I'll wait for the patch before I start over. Thankfully I didn't get too far but my team did finish second.

I'm interested in finding an accurate setting for 1901. It seems like the game does a great job of normalizing after the first year. I wonder if it could be right to input the old 1901 settings from version 6.

I found an old suggested version 6 setting searching the forum and it calmed down the home run parade for 1901 considerably, reducing it to something like historical levels. From what I've seen the game takes over after that.

I found the financial coefficient spreadsheet in one of the threads around here. Using that, I've altered the coefficient every few years or so as I sim.
