League Evolution

With every team financially healthy and a new champion crowned, the evolution for 1899 will be to build new ballparks for two teams who sold out every game in small parks. The champion Pittsburgh Industrialists will be moving into an extreme pitcher's park called Industrialists Park II, which will seat 14200, which is 12000 more than their old park. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Red Legged Devils will be moving into Ballpark of Brooklyn II, which will also hold 14200, which is 11000 more than their old digs.

One of the greatest hitters in history, Jaquan "Hypnotist" Dickerson, has been signed to replace his old Chicago teammate, Jim "Clang" Alexander, has a minor league instructor for Cincinnati. Alexander was previously promoted to the role of major league hitting coach for Cincinnati.

Only One Reliever of the Year?

I've never seen this before. There was no email for an SSL reliever of the year. Matt Berg won in the GABL.

GABL Reliever of the Year Award Winner Named

He's a veteran presence in the Pittsburgh Industrialists bullpen and now Matt Berg can say he's a 1898 award winner.

The bullpen ace was today named the Great American Baseball League Reliever of the Year Award winner.

"When you're 39 years old, your main objective is to just stay healthy and stay productive. I guess I did that this year," he said.

The award was won on the strength of a season that featured 7 saves in 72 relief appearances, with 87 strikeouts in 128.1 innings and a record of 11-5 to go with his 2.31 ERA.

Gary Rodriguez of the Cleveland Eries finished second in voting, while Glenn Cone of the Buffalo Freedom finished third.

Managers of the Year

Breshears is a four-time manager of the year award winner having won in 1891 with Boston and 1896, 1897, and 1898 with Pittsburgh. Callahan is a three-time winner having won in 1896, 1897, and 1898 with Cincinnati.

Pittsburgh's Breshears Cops GABL Best Manager Award
Saturday, September 17th, 1898
When Eric Breshears was hired to lead the Pittsburgh Industrialists, fans were expecting improvement over the last manager. Today, flanked by team officials, Breshears accepted the Great American Baseball League Manager of the Year Award, noting the level of passion for the Pittsburgh Industrialists.

"The biggest challenge was the fans. I don't know how many times I was asked, if I thought the club was good enough. It was as if they expected failure. It was much easier to win over the ballplayers. Slowly but surely the fans began to believe in us."

Breshears led Pittsburgh to a first place finish in the Great American Baseball League. The Industrialists ended up with a 92-40 record.

Breshears is looking forward to the offseason. "We're reviewing our options. You never stand still in baseball. You either get better or worse, 'cause everyone else is out to get your free agents or deal for your prospects. It's going to be a challenge." But the skipper has more than proven he is equal to the task.

Stars and Stripes League Selects Manager of the Year
Saturday, September 17th, 1898
The Cincinnati Abolitionists coaching staff broke out the bubbly when Manager John Callahan was announced as 1898 Stars and Stripes League Manager of the Year.

He skippered the Abolitionists to a 93-39 record this year and a first place finish in the Stars and Stripes League.

To a man, they all agreed that their boss was most deserving of the award. All had glowing words to say about this year's winning manager.

"He just has a way with people. Coaches and players alike love him."

Fun fact about Eric Breshears, he was Pittsburgh's first ever manager. They fired him after one season. Then they rehired him after Boston fired him, and he has won the Manager of the Year Award three years in a row.

The Corey Garvey Award for 1898 has been presented and the Great American Baseball League winner is Kevin Hill of Buffalo .

Jacob Mullane of the Cleveland Eries finished second in voting, while Mario Ledezma of the Cleveland Eries finished third.

Abolitionists Ace, Corey Garvey Award Winner
Sunday, September 18th, 1898
Tyler Vitellaro of the Cincinnati Abolitionists was in command and couldn't do much wrong when he was on the mound this season. His outstanding 29-10 won-lost mark and 3.19 ERA were big factors in his winning the 1898 Stars and Stripes League Corey Garvey Award.

In 344.1 innings of work and 39 starts, Vitellaro struck out 161 while giving up 357 hits and 37 walks. He held opposing batters to a .270 average.

MVP Award Winners

Three Industrialists finished 1, 2, and 3 in the GABL. Their lineup is amazing.

GABL Most Valuable Player Award Goes To Barajas

Monday, September 19th, 1898
It's been a year of triumph for veteran Mike Barajas of the Pittsburgh Industrialists as he hit his way to the 1898 Great American Baseball League Most Valuable Player Award.

The 31-year-old veteran compiled a .358 average and .397 on-base percentage by putting together 192 hits, 35 doubles, no triples, 31 home runs and 36 walks. He also scored 94 times and drove in 116 runs.

Josh Doll of the Pittsburgh Industrialists finished second in voting, while David Gandara of the Pittsburgh Industrialists finished third.

The SSL's Best Player: Tyler Vitellaro
Monday, September 19th, 1898
Tyler Vitellaro said he heard the chants of "MVP! MVP!" during his starts towards the latter half of the season, but he never anticipated he'd actually win the Most Valuable Player Award.

The Cincinnati Abolitionists star has in fact won the honor, capturing the 1898 Stars and Stripes League award.

"You always just assume it's going to go to a position player," said the 32-year-old.

But Vitellaro's season demanded recognition, as he was 29-10, with a 3.19 ERA in 39 starts.

He threw 344.1 innings and had 161 strikeouts with 37. American Association of Baseball Clubs hitters struggled all year against the ace, hitting to an average of only .270.

Willie Sanchez of the Cincinnati Abolitionists finished second in voting, while Fernando Valdez of the Philadelphia Congress finished third.

I have traded minor-league second baseman Brad Hansen to Washington for back-up catcher Bob Baker. Baker is a leader. I hope that this makes my owner happy.

Hall of Fame Results

This is the deepest ballot that I remember seeing. The two that were dropped from the ballot have a good case to be in the Hall.

Graham Takes Place Among Greats

Tuesday, January 3rd, 1899
One of the best players ever, first baseman Mike Graham, has received the ultimate honor for a baseball player -- being inducted into the American Association of Baseball Clubs Hall of Fame.

The induction ceremony, which was held today, included tributes from his former teammates. One of them recognized his unparalleled work ethic, another his "naturally pure" swing, and yet another, his love for the game.

Graham received numerous awards during his playing days, but he said, nothing can compare to being enshrined into the Hall of Fame.

In a career spanning 1142 games, Graham batted .314 with 1249 hits, 40 home runs, 485 RBIs and 556 runs scored.

He retired in 1892. He was elected to the Hall on his 3rd try, with 80.8% of the vote.

Hall of Fame Inducts Catcher
Tuesday, January 3rd, 1899
Enshrinement beckoned for Ethan Edwards, as he was inducted into the American Association of Baseball Clubs Hall of Fame today. Edwards, who played most of his 1133 games at catcher, was an outstanding hitter and batted .321 over his career and swatted 43 home runs. Baseball's newest legend collected 461 RBIs and scored 448 runs during his illustrious career.

But while he was class act on the field, it was off the field where Ethan Edwards shined the most. He was most active in the Philadelphia Congress community, selflessly donating his time and money to various causes. The press was largely unaware of his charity and Edwards never made a fuss about it.

"I played a child's game for many years and this game brought me fame and fortune," Edwards explained during his ceremony. "For some people, it's enough, but my mother raised me to realize that money doesn't make a person great. Being good at a game doesn't make a person great. Helping those in need and giving of yourself selflessly is what makes a person great. And that's what I have tried to be my entire life: great, both on the field and off of the field."

Hall of Fame Voting Results
Tuesday, January 3rd, 1899
The ballots are counted and the results are in. This year we will witness two players added to the Hall of Fame. Ethan Edwards, and Mike Graham received the ultimate honor this year in being voted as the newest members of the Hall of Fame.

The full voting results are included here. Players require 75% of ballots cast to be elected to the Hall, may stay on the ballot for up to 20 years if they receive at least 5% of the votes. Players must be retired for 5 years before they are eligible for induction to the Hall of Fame.

C Ethan Edwards 90.6 (2nd year) Inducted HOF
1B Mike Graham 80.8 (3rd year) Inducted HOF

Draft Day 1899

Here are the top 3 picks in the 1899 amateur draft.

1. Baltimore Shippers- Jess McCall, CF- McCall could be one of the dominant hitters in baseball for the next ten years. He practically has no flaws in his hitting. If he stays healthy, he could be in the hall of fame.

2. Newark Leathers- Brad "The Scorpion" Keel, CF- A really valuable property that any team would want to have. Projects to be an impact player.

3. Washington Presidents- Elijah Grevious, CF- A really valuable property that any team would want to have. Projects to be an impact player.

An Era Is Over

After eight years of Stars and Stripes League dominance, the upstart Great American Baseball League has finally won its first ever All-Star Game. Coming on the heels of the GABL's Pittsburgh Industrialists winning the World Series, it is safe to say that the plucky underdogs have become the favorites in the American Association of Baseball Clubs.

Ceaser Dominates in 1-0 Win over Stars and Stripes League All-Stars
Rich Ceaser cemented his status as one of the best in the game with his performance tonight.

"It's an honor to even be invited to the game. To be rewarded as the MVP of the game is extra special," the Great American Baseball League star said after his great showing. "Just playing on the same diamond as some of these guys is a pure treat."

In the game itself, Rich Ceaser certainly wasn't the only great player out there, but he did enough in the Great American Baseball League's 1-0 win over the Stars and Stripes League All-Stars.

Mid-Season Review of Goals

Owner Josh Guy isn't real happy that my team is in second place. He wanted to win it all this year. On the other hand, he is happy that I traded for veteran back-up catcher Dave Kowalczyk a couple of weeks ago because Dave is just the leader that Guy had in mind.

What to do?

My team has trailed Boston all-season, and it currently trails the Brahmins by 3.5 games. Meanwhile, my owner wants me to make a late season push. The obvious thing to do would be to make a trade from where my team is strong in order to shore up where my team is week. However, my team does not have any weaknesses. We are in first place in both runs scored and runs allowed by a large margin. The problem is more that we win a blowout and follow it up with a one run loss. The only thing to do seems to be to let it play out and hope that my team is the best with a larger sample size.
