1885—It was another thrilling pennant chase in the NBBL, with Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, and Philadelphia all battling down to the final days of the season. The first-year wonders in Philadelphia spent several days in the top spot, but ultimately finished in fourth, albeit just four games out. Detroit emerged as the winner, besting the Haymakers by two games and the Colts by three.

There was little drama in the ABBA, as Cincinnati rolled to an 83-28 record and their third pennant in four years. Second-place Brooklyn finished forty games over .500 and still wound up 7½ games back.

Chicago’s Hugh Woods hit .327 to capture the NBBL batting title, while Henry Humphrey’s .319 mark topped the ABBA. Buffalo’s Hugh West fashioned a 1.52 (in just 118.2 innings) to take the ERA crown in the NBBL, while Baltimore’s Graham Thomas posted the best mark in the Junior Circuit, at 1.69. Detroit’s Al Williams won 34 games to top the NBBL in victories; Cincinnati’s Hiram Ballard won 35 to pace the ABBA.

It would be another off-season rife with activity. The ABBA's Indianapolis Governors called it quits after one last-place season and the league awarded a new franchise to Kansas City, the farthest-west expansion any major league would attempt for the next sixty years. The last of the NBBL’s “small-town” teams, Providence and Troy, both met the reaper soon after the season, and replacements set up shop in the nation’s capitol and the recently-vacated Indianapolis. Finally, the Toledo club headed east for the greener pastures of the Forest City. They would soon be known as the Cleveland Cats but before long the more familiar "Bobcats" would take hold.

1886—The schedule in both leagues was increased again, now running to 126 games. The season started a few days before May Day and was extended through mid-October.

Both leagues had fairly tight races until the eventual winners pulled away late in the season. Buffalo took the NBBL flag by five games over Chicago and six games over Detroit, and Cincinnati won in the ABBA, besting Brooklyn by seven games and Baltimore by nine.

The NBBL batting champion was New York’s Mike O’Sullivan, whose .357 mark was the highest in either league to date; Cincinnati’s Frank Fry captured the ABBA title by hitting .325. Buffalo’s Hugh West posted the best ERA in the Senior Circuit, a 2.08 mark, while his teammate Eli Taylor paced the loop in victories with 31. Royal Ricketts of Cincinnati led the Junior Circuit both in ERA (1.83) and wins (32).

For the first time, the two league champions faced off in a postseason series. Billed as the “World’s Championship”, it was a two-game affair on neutral fields (Cleveland and Erie, Pennsylvania, respectively). The teams split the two games. As the clubs did not carry full rosters (Buffalo ace Eli Taylor was not present) and apparently treated the game more as an exhibition than an actual championship bout, it is not considered the first World Series, but it certainly put the taste for postseason baseball in the public's mouth, if it wasn't already there.

The off-season was uneventful, as all 16 teams stayed afloat. It would be the last such off-season for the next five years.

The time is nigh. All that remains is Cleveland's Bobcats and the Wolverines of Detroit.

1887—Brooklyn broke Cincinnati’s hold on the ABBA flag, outdistancing the Excellents (and also Baltimore and St. Louis, as three teams tied for second) by six games. In the NBBL New York beat Chicago by four games and Buffalo by six.

Baltimore’s Tom Guthrie was the first batting Triple Crown winner, leading the ABBA in hitting (.333), home runs (14), and RBI (105), also becoming the first player to drive in at least 100 runs in a season. Riley Gamble of Indianapolis hit .354 to top all NBBL hitters.

Dick Mundy of Chicago topped the NBBL in ERA at 2.31, while Brooklyn’s Leander Mcnaughton posted a 1.91 mark to lead ABBA hurlers. Buffalo’s Hugh West was the top winner in the Senior Circuit with 33 victories while Leon Gurley of St. Louis topped the Junior with 25.

The second "unofficial' World Series took place. Like last year's exhibition, the games were not officially sanctioned by either league, were played on neutral fields (in Jersey City and Newark), and the series did not produce an actual winner (with each team taking two of the four contests).

Shortly after the season the ABBA's Kansas City franchise declared bankruptcy. The league decided to "stay west" by awarding a team to Milwaukee, which hadn't been represented since the then-NLPBBC abandoned the city after the 1878 season.

The league is now full, so I won't be posting any more recaps here. If you're still interested in following the league's progress the URL is american-circuit.net. If it's not up yet, it will be soon.

We're about ready to start.

It took a couple of months to run our "pre-history" (the years 1876-1945) because we only simmed one year a day.

Unfortunately while we were at full membership two months ago we're five members short now. Some GMs "officially" dropped out and some just stopped responding to messages, which is the "unofficial" way to drop out. This was actually somewhat expected as we figured some people might not have the patience to stick around for two months waiting to get started.

So we need five GMs. The open teams are Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia. Chicago is a member of the 8-team upstart league (essentially an expansion team); the other four are members of the now-70-year-old established league.

If you're just coming across this league for the first time, more details can be found at the website (http://www.american-circuit.net).

We have 70 years of simmed history, but aside from that we're a brand new league now ready to begin our "human" phase. You can be part of this "beginning". PM me if you're interested.

Since we're getting close to our first live draft, I'll take a moment to try to sell the three teams we still need GMs for:

Philadelphia is one of the elite teams in the league, with 15 World Series appearances and 9 world championships. They're coming off two poor years in a row, but those were years when all their best players were off to war; they're about to get those guys back, and they should be competitive again.

Boston and Buffalo are another story.

Boston has only made two World Series appearances in their 70-year history; they won both times, but the last one was 32 years ago. They did finish over .500 as recently as three years ago (1943), but that was in a war-depleted league.

Buffalo was a great team in the 1880’s (with three league titles during the decade) and a good one in the 1930’s (three pennants but three World Series losses); they've been poor-to-mediocre since.

If you’re looking for a ready-made winner, Philly is your team; if you’re looking for a challenging rebuilding project, Boston or Buffalo fit the bill.
