ULB - Grand Championship Preview

The following preview was written by the ULB team representative.

The ULB is entering it's 16th season. Started as a rival to the MLB in 1995. Using baseball-reference, we recreate draft classes as a mixture of familiar faces and unknown players, while also mixing in players from other SimCentral.net Leagues of the past like the CL, VL, FFL and the still running RSL. OOTPdev Forum member Knuckler is a 12 time All Star in the league. Kevin Parlett, our representative, won the 2009 Union Cup. In preparation for this GCL, we had him watch Bring It On for 24 hours straight. While we are running on 14, we plan to upgrade to 16 next season, so we can retire Michael Jordan's number 45. Some of us have been doing this since 2001.

5 Keys to Winning: If these 5 things happen, this team will contend for the title or to reverse it – if these things don’t happen the way you expect – you won’t be in the mix.

1. High OBP and hitting with Runners in scoring position. Jumping on the board early.

2. Starting rotation to be as good as advertised.

3. George Brooks to carry the power in the middle of the lineup

4. Have a 7th 8th 9th lock down bull pen.

5. Pitching, fundamentals and the three run homerun.
