World Baseball League Quickstart

This is the fictional league I have been running for most of OOTP 11 and now in 12 as well - I thought some others might be interested in checking it out.

The WBL is a 16 team league set in an alternate world where baseball is the dominant world sport. It started in 2010 and is currently in the offseason after the 2142 season. In addition, there is a smaller competing major league, the Canadian-American League (CAL) which doesn't have a draft and tends to have a much lower standard of play. Trades and free agency is currently enabled between the leagues - you can adjust that if you wish.

I have turned off expansion and team movement for the WBL in league evolution (though one team moved to Phoenix before I did this.) In my league, I am planning on expanding the WBL to 20 teams shortly - you can do whatever you want with it of course.

WBL teams

Mumbai Marauders
Shanghai Slaughter
Moscow Titans
Tokyo Thunder
London Guardians
New York Giants
Phoenix Border Cats (formerly Los Angeles Lancers)
Mexico City Quetzals
Johannesburg Sharks
Singapore Pirates
Sydney Waves
Indonesia Leopards
Santiago Adventure
Sao Paolo Warriors
Lagos Senators
Argentina Gauchos

The Canadian-American League started in 2051 - after the LA Lancers franchise moved away, disgruntled fans joined others who wanted a larger presence in world baseball of the US and Canada and formed an eight team league. Originally there was a Dallas team as well but it folded from lack of attendance after 6 seasons, replaced by Denver. Originally this league was blocked from trading with the WBL in an attempt to squash the upstart CAL, but after it had been up and running for a while trading was re-enabled. The CAL does not have an amateur draft or any minor leagues. Good players tend to sign with teams in the WBL when they become free agents, and sometimes worn out players from the WBL go down to the CAL to have a few last good seasons.

Vancouver Foresters
Miami Cyclones
Chicago White Sox
Toronto Needles
Denver Mountains
San Francisco Sails
Los Angeles Knights
Atlanta Savages

With so much history, the file for this league is very large - over 1 GB. Let me know if you have any further questions.
