If you like to play some of your games some of the time, talk trash, rage quit, cause issues, violate the league rules, or just have something better to do, this is not the place for you. There are plenty of leagues out there where that is the norm. HOWEVER, If you are looking for an MLB 15 The Show League of dedicated people who want to be in an active MLB league with honest players and want be part of a community of sports gamers, this is the place.
SEASON LENGTH – We will play an 82 game season (Possibly 60) – This allows for a good pennant race to develop, teams to build and competition to evolve. It is also short enough that we can get through more than one season in a year.
SETTINGS – We will play on Hall of Fame difficulty for both HITTING and PITCHING.
SCHEDULING – We will play at a pace of at least one 3-4 game series per 7 day week. If everyone has completed their games, we will advance sooner and move to the next series.
WHAT IS REQUIRED – First, dedication to the league. We need you to play your games in a timely manner and be flexible with your opponent’s schedule. Stick with it. The league has been designed in a way that struggling teams can improve. Be a good sport, don’t be a dick. We are all adults, act like it. Trash talking (other than friendly fun) will not be tolerated and you will be removed from the league. Most important, have fun, afterall, it’s not just a game, it’s a game of a game. Take your business within the game seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously. We are looking for good guys (or gals) that want to have fun playing The Show, that are committed to their team and want to stick out a full season, or 10.
LEAGUE START DATE – We will give everyone two weeks to get the game and to get in some practice getting used to any changes and differences in the feel of the game. During this time, I recommend you add everyone in the league to your friends list and play as many games as you can against as many different league members to get a feel for how guys play. Consider this our Spring Training period. This will also allow time for some decent sliders to be developed and tested. If all goes well we are shooting for an April 15th Opening Day.
