Mike's Sports Simulations Website
Introduction to Site
Like most of you, I have played a variety of sports simulations, both board game and on computer. Over the last ten years, I returned to my board game roots because board games involve me in the season I am replaying in a way that computer games just don't. I spend the vast majority of my time with Replay Baseball, but I also dabble with Hockey Blast and Second Season Football. This Website will house my replay results and some other stuff of interest to like-minded folks and also some stuff of interest to no one at all. Welcome.
The picture to the right was taken at the 2014 Replay Retreat in Pittsburgh. I am on the left and my good friend Ringo is my opponent.
My Completed Replays and the Current Project
1979 Major League Baseball
This one is near the All-Star Break. Interesting races in all three divisions.
My Replay Baseball Encyclopedia
At the end of each season Replay, I publish an encyclopedia that includes all the records from my projects. There is a section of season-by-season recaps in the style of the old Neft and Cohen "Sports Encyclopedia: Baseball". There is a section of leaderboards, both single season records and "career" leaders. Lastly, the bulk of the book contains each player's season-by-season stats in the format of Total Baseball or the old MacMillan Encyclopedias. This whole thing is silly because the records only reflect the odd lot of seasons I have chosen to play, but I get a kick out of knowing that Mickey Mantle's next home run in one of my projects will be the 186th I have rolled for him.
