Constitution of the GUBA

League Forums

The Global Unified Baseball Association (GUBA) has deep roots in its ownership. The GUBA is the direct result of two prior leagues, the MBBA and the FIBB, joining together to form one unified place were the ownership could gather for an ultimate global fictional league experience with Out of the Park Baseball 2007. All original franchises were previous MBBA, FIBB or GBC franchises.

Welcome to the Global Unified Baseball Association (GUBA). We are a thriving league of 36 teams, each one owned and operated by a dedicated member of the GUBA family. We are always looking for people who are interested in following the league or becoming owners. With that in mind, please understand that the process for being granted an GUBA franchise is different than most other leagues. Please read the following to gain a better understanding of how the GUBA's owner selection process works:

The GUBA has an extremely solid ownership base and very active participants. As a result, owner turnover is low and positioning for involvement is expected to be competitive. The "Waiting List" consists of people who, out of their interest in the league and desire to eventually own a franchise, have become active members of the GUBA community. These people are affectionately referred to as "Vultures."

Vultures participate in day-to-day league activities by contributing to forum discussions, both about the league or general off-topic issues, write articles about teams and/or players, and otherwise interact on a regular basis with current owners and other Vultures. In most cases, Vultures are "hired" by current owners to assist them in running their franchise in an "Assistant GM" (AGM) capacity. Through their participation, Vultures gain valuable knowledge of the league, its players, and most importantly, its owners. Conversely, the other league owners get to learn more about potential ownership candidates.

There is no "pecking order" when it comes to Vultures; new owners will be selected based in part on seniority, but also based on overall participation and general "fit" with the rest of the league. Thus, having been around longer than the next guy might help you become the next owner accepted, but it is by no means a guarantee. By the same token, just because you haven't been around as long as some other, doesn't necessarily mean you can't or won't be considered for the next opening. Should you wish to be considered for an opening in the near future, please feel free to stop by the GUBA Forums and introduce yourself by answering some questions in the New Applicants forum.

Owners must have the leagues current version of OOTP and may only control 1 team. Violations of these or any rules described below may merit league enforced punishment, or in extreme cases, banishment from the GUBA. We are all assumed to be in various degrees of maturity and will be expected to dust it off on occasion. Simply put it’s this easy--------
1. Have fun
2. Try your best
3. Treat others as you would like to be treated (or better!)

GUBA has completed its initial draft and is finalizing uniforms. We had one original owner drop out due to time constraints. Thus I have an open team (we can discuss which one in private).

GUBA is not for the faint of heart, or for the "I'll give it a shot" crowd. One you're in, you need to be in. We're a very tightly knit group, we get into what we do, and we want someone to join us who will be the same.

PM me for more info.

Let me know if you didn't get it. Thanks.

The London Spitfires are now open in our freshly started league. They've jumped out to a nice 10-4 start, and need a strong hand to guide them. Are you that person? Follow the directions in the first post to apply, or PM me.

I'm aware of that. I approve them twice a day.

The Pago Pago Coconuts, in the GUBA's FIBB Far East Division, are now available for ownership applications.

Pago Pago is headed up by star catcher Anthony "Bun Bun" Key, currently ranked #1 in the GUBA's Positional Strength report.

Come to the forums, register, PM me here and I'll validate you, then fill out an application in the forums. We'll go from there. Hope to see some new faces soon!

Come join! I RARELY screw up the sims!

Recte44 07-10-2007 09:51 AM

Friendly morning bump. We're still looking for a Pago Pago owner- PM me.

Recte44 07-30-2007 05:07 PM

Pago Pago was filled by a high-profile OOTP Developments type guy. You want to play with the big boys, and get a good team to boot (with a couple days left until the trade deadline)??? The opportunities don't get much better than this one.

Warsaw Falcons, 56-44, 2 games behind the Dublin Shamrocks in the GUBA's Federation of International Baseball Euro Division.

The Falcons aren't your everyday open franchise. These guys have the ability to be a title contender right now.

Michael Hathaway is the club's leader offensively, and his pitching counterpart is Floyd McDonald. While several of the Falcons stars are aging, there is a bunch of young talent here and it will be a good candidate to be a contend and then build franchise (fun for all interests).

Interested? Register for the GUBA Forums, PM me here when you do and I'll approve your account there and give you further instructions.

We're not just recruiting for this one team, either. There's been a bunch of owners drop out because 2007 is just too big of a game for their liking (we've been around since OOTP4 in one shape or form). I anticipate there may be a few more openings as we move forward, and the best way to get in is going to be to get in NOW and make sure I know who you are.

See you soon!

Recte44 07-30-2007 06:59 PM

bump to the top- I want to lock someone down tonight but it needs to be the right person. COme join us!

Recte44 07-30-2007 11:15 PM


Ok, now the Moscow Enforcers are open as well as the Warsaw Falcons (listed above). Moscow is a rebuilding project.

Follow the instructions above/PM me here.

Not sure if anyone cares, but I'm in this league, as of recently, and it's pretty cool.

It's definitely a league that rewards good writing, not just an "export and wait" league!

Recte44 07-31-2007 09:47 AM

Warsaw has been quickly filled, that leaves Moscow for one lucky soul who gets to join our ranks. Is it you?

railroad_ross 08-02-2007 04:27 AM

Wow! What a trade deadline! Come join the excitement. Just reading the news can be like reading a dynasty thread.

Recte44 08-02-2007 09:16 PM

Received. We have filled all ownership slots and now are building our waiting lists. Unlike other leagues where you get on a waiting list and WAIT, here we have "vultures" who will actively contribute to the league while waiting for full ownership.

The GUBA is proving to be a big draw- come join us.

Recte44 08-24-2007 12:20 PM

I'm here to announce the GUBA will have two more openings right away, and potentially a few more after our Participation Point deadline passes this evening.

The two open teams are:
Louisville Sluggers, 83-79
If you want a challenge, this is it. They have plenty of talent, but were financially mismanaged and need someone to bail them out.

Chicago Fire, 68-94
This is much more of a rebuilding project, but more manageable than the Sluggers situation.

If interested- PM me here, let me know you're going to register on the GUBA Forums and with what username. Then I'll approve your registration, and send further instructions.

Join us because we're cool, and because Steve Battisti is in the league! :)

Recte44 08-24-2007 08:30 PM

Still need a Louisville owner.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 08:39 PM.
