The ARBL - Adult Random Baseball League is taking applications for a start-up league beginning in 1977! We will be drawing draft classes from 1968-2018 - 50 years of MLB! Random Debut represents one of the coolest game possibilities in OOTP and this league strives to enjoy OOTP while leaving the complexity behind such as Financials and complicated house rules. This is a "Fast" paced league in terms of sim length but, not a high demand in terms of frequency. We will move along 2 months per week. Live sims will be held and the thrill and anticipation of sim night will be amazing as we enjoy some of the greatest players in MLB over this period of baseball. Do you draft an older Nolan Ryan/Paul Molitor because he is your favorite alltime player in order to pass up a younger MLB star from that era?! The possibilities are endless and random.

I've been running an OOTP league online since 2012. We have achieved 30 seasons in 8 fun years. I've been running simulatuion sports leagues for over 2 decades, including 22 years in a competitors baseball game. League members will be given first crack at filling the open teams first, however; I do anticipate a few spots being open to reach 24 GMs in season #1 - 1977!

While we get setup, I can forward you a copy of the league constitution and initial draft class via email. Please reach out to me via email and let me know a bit about yourself and why you feel you would be a good fit for us.

I'm interested in OOTP fans that will jump right in with passion in joining a new league from the ground up and being part of something special. You do not need to be an expert at the OOTP game online. We can teach you what you need to know/do to participate in an online league if you have never tried.

Last chance to join a great league! Please PM today if interested and/or have any questions.

GM a team comprised of actual players from multiple generations competing against each other in a league run by one of the premier commissioners in the OOTP world. Further, the GMs in the ARBL also are among the best.

Imagine... Retired players returning to action to play for you! Aaron, Bonds, Seaver, Ryan, Yastrzemski, and many, many more. Imagine... Current MLB players also competing in the same league. Players such as Arredondo, Verlander, Benintendi, Judge, and more. Which players will dominate? Will players from one or more decades shine more than players from others? Who will equal or exceed real-life production? Who will become the ARBL career leaders?

The ARBL is preparing to begin our second season, which will be 1978. As GM, you will draft several players from a set of randomly generated rookies - real life players each at the age he first played at the MLB level. Next you will execute trades and otherwise manage your existing 40-man roster. Soon after, you and your new team will launch into the new season.

The league settings mean that you can enjoy the experience, competition, and camaraderie without an extensive time commitment. If you are interested in rising to the challenge, joining the fun, and guiding your team while the ARBL builds our unique history over time, contact Jason without delay. You will be happy you did.

We are just about to finish our 2nd season! That means our random debut draft will be right around the corner. We will have a couple of spots open in this 28 team league. If you are interested please PM.
