The 1998 Season Replay with 1968 as Historical Year (as promised)

On another thread, I promised when I had a chance to play out the 1998 season using 1968 as the historical year.

I got it done. Wonderful results. Mark McGwire led the NL in home runs. With...33 !! Greg Vaughn tied him at 33 actually. Rafael Palmiero hit 32 to lead the AL. Bernie Williams won the AL batting title with a .309 average. Sean Casey hit .329 to lead the NL:

Some ERAs:

John Smoltz: 1.41
Pedro Martinez 1.54
Kevin Brown 1.77
Hideki Irabu (!!) 1.64
Andy Pettitte 1.73
Mike Hampton 1.84



RBI leaders: Todd Helton 112, Palmeiro 102 - those were the two league leaders.

Other individual stats: Sammy Sosa: .209 average, 24 HR, Ken Griffey Jr., .242 average, 24 homers. A-Rod, .281, 26 home runs.,

Randy Johnson, 15-12, 2.17 ERA, 250 K.

Barry Bonds, .284, 21 home runs.Mariano Rivera, 10-4, 2.04 ERA. Mike Piazza, .264, 21 HR.

The Yankees won 107 games.

Interesting results. No? I will run it for 1999 with '68 as the historical year, and for 2001 (Bonds' 73 homer year). Then see what happens with 1968 using 1998 as the historical year instead.

Wonderful! I love stuff like this! Im interested in using the 1915 MLB player set with 1993 settings. Can you advise me how to do this? Or just tell me how you set up your 1968/1998 game?

Yes. Start a historical year in 1915. Then sim to 2 days before Opening Day. Go to Game-League Settings-Historical. Set the historical year to 1993. Hit return on your keyboard. Now go to Stats and AI in League Settings and change the season totals settings in the right hand column to 1993 and hit return. It will take a second. If you want 1993 financials as well go to Financials and change those to 1993. Then sim to opening day. Save and create a backup. You are readycto play. if you want 1993 to remain the setting for the life of the league do these settings 2 days before opening day every season.otherwise the stats base will go to 1994 etc.

The only you don't mention, which I have found out by experience, is that you have to uncheck the box in the Players section referring to Importing Players Using Historical Creation Modifers. Because if you have that box checked, the season stats will be haywire.

Otherwise, things have been great in following your instructions...
