The Houston Saga

On October 10, 1960, Houston, Texas was awarded a Major League Baseball franchise.

At the time, Houston was one of the largest cities in America without a MLB team, and the efforts to bring a New York team back to the National League aided the effort in Houston, as the National League added the Mets and Colt .45s to expand to 10 teams, bringing Major League Baseball to 20.

This thread will cover my reign as General Manager of the Houston Colt .45s (and beyond, rumor has it they change names in a few years).

My character's name is Roy Hofheinz. In real life, Hofheinz was one of the original owners of the Colt .45s. He was also a mayor of Houston, a judge in Houston, and a beloved figure in the city.

I began my sim at the beginning of the 1961 season. Things went a little differently, as the Giants won the World Series and Roger Maris did NOT hit 61 homers. Breathe easy, Babe.

Following the '61 season, the Houston ownership group announced that it's very own Roy Hofheinz would be the General Manager. He would be in charge of drafting the team during the upcoming expansion draft and filling the team's minor league system with talent.

Like in real life, amateurs will be imported into the free agent pool. The draft did not exist until 1965, and it will not exist until then in this game as well.

The next post will have the results of the expansion draft.

Sunday, November 19, 1961, Houston, Texas


The Houston Colt .45s have signed their first amateur free agents, inking second baseman Jim Wynn, catcher John Bateman, and pitcher Jim McGlothlin to minor league contracts. Wynn is the most exciting of the three youngsters, and the excitement was matched with a signing bonus of $50,000.

"These three young men will be the cornerstones of this franchise for a long time," Part Owner and General Manager Roy Hofheinz said.

Wynn, 19, is from Cincinnati, OH, and played one year of collegiate baseball at Central State University. Despite only being 5'10" tall and 160 lbs, Wynn is known for his strength and power.

The 21-year-old Bateman was born in Texas but grew up in Oklahoma. Where he played amateur baseball is unclear, but what is clear is that major league scouts are impressed with his work ethic and love for the game, traits that will help him fulfill his potential.

McGlothlin, 18, is known for his firm fastball. If he can learn to control his blazing fastball, he projects as a possible front of the rotation arm.

All three of the amateurs will begin their careers at a minor league affiliate of the Colt .45s.

If you were one of the few that read the original recap of Opening Day...well...my game crashed. Instead of just accepting it and going to bed and replaying the next day, I hastily tried to sim and win again. Long story short, I messed up and I did NOT win opening day this time (we got pummeled 10-4).

So, I'm not going to take the time to write a recap, but the Colt .45s are 0-1, not 1-0.

I don't have a set time frame for how often updates will come (every week in game, every series, etc) but I'll update as needed.
