Field of Dreams



I am sure if every baseball player who ever played the game, alive or gone, could get another chance at an atbat, a defensive play, or a season, they would jump at the chance. The game gives us a special feeling of youth and hope, and thats a great part of the joy of OOTP, bringing the names and the teams back to try again.

Every baseball team is unique in its own way. There have been 2470 major league baseball teams between 1901 and 2017. My objective is to help relive each and everyone even for a moment. This is completely separate from my Excellence project, that's where the elite play, this is for the forgotten team, as well as every era played of this grand game.

So in my mind I see the baseball Gods picking two teams out of many and giving them the chance to play again. Kind of a field of dreams that I am sure every player would jump at the chance at.

I also love the randomness of any match up and being able to pick a team from history and actually study it to see how good or bad they really were.

In this thread I will simply take every team in MLB history and randomly pick two for seven games series. We may see upsets or great performances, but the matchups should be interesting in any event. Its not so much about how long it will take to finish, its just the fun of the process long the way.

This project will take years but I don't plan on leaving OOTP anytime soon. As new seasons come into play (like 2018) I will only take the top 10 teams of that season at the expense of the worst teams ever to play.

There is a preliminary round of 422 series, to make the numbers even and go from there

Here is the format:
  • 2470 teams from 1901 to 2017 (every team, yes every team, good and bad, from every franchise)
  • Matchups totally random
  • Preliminary round 840 teams with 422 winners
  • First round and forward 2048 teams play down to 1 winner
  • All series best of 7

Preliminary Series #1





1954 Pittsburgh Pirates (53-101) vs 2016 Milwaukee Brewers (73-89)


PIRATES STUN BREWERS

A one hundred loss team isnt suppose to play great baseball and win. This 1954 Pirate team however lead by manager Fred Haney did exactly that. The Pirates dismantled the modern day Brewers winning all three games at Forbes Field including a shutout in game five lead by Jake Thies. The wildest games of the series were an 11-10 win by the Brewers in extra innings of game 2 and a thrilling 10-9 win for the Bucs in game five to win the series. Preston Ward had a monster series for the Pirates driving in 11 runs in the five games while Bob Friend won both his starts and struck out 15 hitters. It can only be said that Craig Counsell and his men did not take their opposition seriously and is evidence in this competition, records seem to be out the window.

Preliminary Series #2





1969 Cleveland Indians (62-99) vs 1951 Boston Braves (83-71)


BOSTON ROARS BACK TO TRAMPLE TRIBE


The 1951 Boston Braves were set to become the second successive club to fall to a big underdog as they fell behind the best of seven series against the 1969 Tribe three games to one. Warren Spahn put his nose to the grindstone and won a crucial game five to send the series back to Braves Field. Vern Burkford then won game six, his second win of the series and an eventual MVP award striking out 19. Then came the first game seven where the Braves , lead by Bob Elliott, beat the fading Indians 7-2. Tony Horton drove in 14 runs for the Tribe in the series in a great performance, but closing the deal just was too much for them.

Preliminary Series #3



1994 Los Angeles Dodgers (58-56) vs 1959 Los Angeles Dodgers (88-68)


DODGER BLUE BATTLE GOES TO CHAMPIONS

A battle of two quite good Dodgers teams. The 1959 club of course won the big one and made it hold up in this series disposing of Tommy LaSordas team in five games. The first two games were very tight with game two going to the 1994 team when Brett Butler threw out the tying run at the plate to end the game. Don Demeter and the champion Dodgers soon took control and won three games in a row at the Coliseum; Demeter drove in 12 runs on 10 hits. In the clinching game it was Don Drysdale who threw a complete game shutout in dominant fashion to end the series.

Preliminary Series #4



1971 San Francisco Giants (90-72) vs 1955 Chicago White Sox (91-63)

WHITE SOX SWEEP AGING GIANTS

A battle of two 90 win teams could get anyone excited, but this series didnt live up to any of that as the upstart 1955 White Sox did away with the 71 Giants in four straight games. Billy Pierce set the tone by pitching a shutout in game one and once the series went out west the Sox hittiers scored 21 runs in two games to put things away. Bad defense by the Giants contributed but it was the hustle of stars like Minnie Minoso and Nellie Fox that made the difference. An aging Willie Mays only had two atbats in the four games.

Preliminary Series #5




1929 Boston Braves (55-98) vs 1932 New York Giants (72-82)

GIANTS BATS COME TO LIFE

The 1932 Giants came into their first season without legendary manager John MCGraw as a bit of a mystery. In this series against the poor 98 loss 1929 Braves they proved that that lack of direction may be on display. The Giants lost twice to the Browns and came home to the Polo Grounds needing only one win. That is when they put 22 runs on the board in the clinching game and put all doubt in advancing. Mel Ott and Bill Terry both had 3 home runs in the series and Carl Hubbell struck out 20 men in his two starts.

Thanks for doing yet another one of these. I've always wanted to do something like this but I have a couple of questions.

First, how do you randomize the matchups and secondly, how do you keep track of a 2048 team bracket?

Yeah its a years long project, because I am a complete nerd and love to watch the series matchup. I keep everything on excel, its a massive file in time, and I would love to know if there is a better way to track everything. I also track all the stats for the Hall of Famers.

As for the bracket, I dont quite have one yet, because there are actually 2470 teams. So the first thing I am doing is bringing that number down to 2048 teams. So I list all the the teams, I randomize 2470 numbers with the help of random.com, and then play out the matchups as they come up. I will do this until I eliminate 422 teams, then I can start the "bracket" of 2048 per say.

Massive project to say the least, but what do I care?, I truly love doing it.

Thanks for following.

Preliminary Series #6



1922 Philadelphia Ahtletics (65-89) vs 1971 St. Louis Cardinals (90-72)

CARDS UPSET BY UPSTART PHILLY BATS

Connie Mack knows something about winning the big one, Mack had his underdog 1922 Athletics playing like th favorites in a dominant and surprising win against the 1971 Cardinals. The A;s lost game one by a score of 14-4 and without flinching won four games in a row, Slim Harris pitched a complete game in game three and the A's looked dominant at Shibe Park. Bing Miller went deep three times and drove in 8 while Frank Welch hit .421. Bob Gibson and the Cardinal arms had some trouble as Gibson lost the clincher and Steve Carlton had an ERA over 14.

Preliminary Series #7



2017 Baltimore Orioles (75-87) vs 1933 Chicago Cubs (86-68)

OLD VERSUS NEW GOES SEVEN STRONG

A great series where the home team wom everygame and the competition between the old and the new was at its best. The Cubs seemed to have it all going after their bats mugged the Birds for 14 runs in the first two games. Baltimore won game three behind a good Ubaldo Jimenez and then did some hammering of their own including a two home run game off Manny Machado to give the underdogs a 3-2 series lead. Back at Wrigley Field the Cubs won a tight game six and then Bud Tinning won game seven striking out 6 in a 4-2 win. Machado was a spark plug with 4 home runs that the Cubs didnt appreciate but in the end Riggs Stevenson and Gabby Hartnett never quit and won the biggest moments.

Preliminary Round 8



1914 St. Louis Cardinals (81-72) vs 1981 Milwaukee Brewers (62-47)

CHALK ONE UP FOR THE DEAD BALL ERA

The 1981 Brewers took off in game one with a win over the dead ball 1914 Cardinals by two runs late. Hank Robinson then showed the burly Brewers how old ball is done beating them 1-0 in game two going 7 innings strong. Player manager Miller Huggins was the spark these Cardinals needed as they ran off three more wins at Sportmans Park leaving Milwaukee reeling. Huggins hit .467 in the five game and John Wilson hammered two home runs to the delight of many. In the end however it was the complete frustration of Brewer hitters that couldnt touch the relentless St. Louis pitching.

Preliminary Series #9



1915 Philadelphia Athletics (43-109) vs 1971 Oakland Athletics (101-60)

BATTLE OF ATHLETICS NO CONTEST

Its not often when two teams so far apart in confidence and skill face off, and in this matchups both had the same Athletic logo and name. As expected the Oakland team roared through Connie Mack and his limited club in a four game sweep series win. The 1915 team only scored 5 runs in the four games and were chased off the field in a 14-1 in game four. Reggie Jackson and Bert Campenaris combined for nine RBI and the Oakland pitching was smooth and dominant. This series as expected was no competition.

Preliminary Series #10



1976 Milwaukee Brewers (66-95) vs 1993 Chicago Cubs (84-78)

CUBS PITCHING SWEEPS BREWERS

The 1993 Cubs took game one late of this series on a Steve Buechele single. After that tight win, Cubs pitching allowed only two runs in the next three games including a game two gem by Juan Guzman in which the Cubs shutout the Crew. Chicago took two games from their north rivals to sweep the series and Mike Harkey went the distance in game four striking out five. Robin Yount and a 42 year old Hank Aaron combined for only three hits.

Preliminary Series #11



1975 Houston Astros (64-97) vs 1918 Washington Senators (72-56)

SENATORS SILENCE ASTROS BATS

The Houston Astros took the first two games of this series at Griffith Stadium in dramatic fashion including a 17 inning win in the opener. The Senators had all the momentum heading home but it was the favorites that turned the series around. The pitching really did it for the Senators as they allowed five runs in four games and took four games in a row. Walter Johnson got his win but it was Jim Shaw who outdueled Dave Roberts in a complete game 1-0 win to clinch. A viable effort by Houston but a weak finish.

Preliminary Series #12



2001 Pittsburgh Pirates (62-100) vs 1980 Texas Rangers (76-85)


Texas In Clean Sweep of Bucs


The 1980 Texas Rangers had no issues disposing of the 100 loss 2001 Pittsburgh Pirates. Pat Putman and Buddy Bell combined to drive in 13 runs in four games while Gaylord Perry threw 8 scoreless innings in a game 2 shutout. Bronson Arroyo and the Pirate arms were not in the zone while no Pirate hitter drove in more than 3 runs.





Series MVP:

Preliminary Series #13



1995 Los Angeles Dodgers (78-66) vs 1982 California Angels (93-69)


Dodgers Pull Upset In Battle of LA


The Dodgers have always felt they are the darling of California baseball, and in this series they set that claim true by defeating a favored and good Angels team. The teams split the first two games in Anaheim with Hideo Nomo pitching for the win in the opener. The Dodgers took 2 out of 3 at home and game six turned into a tight pitchers duel. Ismael Valdez struck out 14 in 15 innings of work in the series and did enough in the clincher to beat the Angels 2-1. Raul Modesi was the MVP driving in 10 runs while Brian Downing hit three home runs in the series for the Angels.

Preliminary Series #14


1956 Washington Senators (59-95) vs 1916 St. Louis Browns (79-75)

Browns Find Way To Survive Senators
It took to the final game where the Browns erased the Senators in a game seven 8-1 win for this tight series to end. Bob groom pitched well in both his starts but it was his game six effort that was most crucial. Surprisingly Whitey Herzog lead the Senators in hitting as Washington leaned on pitching and failed to register a single long ball for the series. The Senators turned around a 3-1 deficit in the series to take things to the final game, where they just ran out of momentum. Del Pratt and George Sisler each drove in seven runs in the series and Eddie Plank pitched a shutout in game one.
