1920

Changes
  • Change stolen base success (lower) - Steals are now even more likely to fail than before. I haven't covered this too much in the story, but a lot of guys have been getting thrown out more often than they successfully steal, which I think has made the real life high SB guys less valuable than in real life, because they erase a lot of their hits by making outs on the bases.
  • 3 more fan loyalty - St. Louis's fan loyalty was increased from 8 to 10. New Jersey's fan loyalty was increased from 4 to 5.
  • Change hits (larger) - base hits will now be 1.2x as common as in real life.
Off-Season
- Brooklyn traded starter Earl Yingling to the Red Sox for Tillie Shafer and a pitching prospect.
- New Jersey traded ace Dixie Walker to Louisville for second baseman Bill Rodgers and a minor leaguer.
- All-time saves leader Ralph Caldwell moved from Louisville to Baltimore.
- Ty Cobb signed with the White Sox, leaving Brooklyn behind.
- Starter Tom Hughes moved from the Cubs to the Phillies.
- Veteran Jimmy Sheckard signed with the Yankees.

Notes
- The Orioles batted .402 as a team, and had the strongest offense in the majors.
- Game 140 was a de facto one-game playoff between the Braves and the Cardinals. The game was tied at 2-2 with two outs in the top of the ninth, before a crucial error by rookie Frank Parkinson allowed Jimmy Johnston to reach base. Rabbit Maranville walked, and then Ruth, Zack Wheat and Steve O'Neill hit back-to-back-to-back singles, bringing home three runs, and taking the Braves to their fourth straight pennant.
- Dutch Leonard was the only AL pitcher with an ERA under four, as run scoring continued to explode.
- The Brewers collapsed to the worst record in baseball, as Rogers Hornsby was absent for the entire year.
- Ruth hit .476/.562/.951, and broke countless records.
- The Indians traded Urban Shocker to the Athletics for third baseman Earl Smith and a minor league pitcher.
- Sam Rice was traded from the Cubs to the White Sox. Veteran Red Ames and a pitching prospect went the other way across town.
- The Nationals traded veteran Ed Konetchy to Minnesota for three prospects.

Achievements & Milestones
- Babe Ruth (Braves) and Whitey Witt (Cleveland) each had three home runs in a game. Ruth had previously been the only person to do so, in 1917.
- Twelve players had six hits in a game. Wally Gerber (Cleveland) had seven, while Bubbles Hargrave (Baltimore) and High Pockets Kelly (White Sox) both totaled nine hits during their efforts.
- Kelly's six hit day saw him hit for the cycle. Babe Ruth hit for the cycle twice in 1921, while Marty Krug (Detroit), Frank Gilhooley (Milwaukee), Ben Paschal (Milwaukee), Elmer Smith (NY Yankees) and Austin McHenry (Washington) also collected all four base hits.
- Bernie Friberg (Minnesota) had a 60-game hitting streak. Austin McHenry (Washington) and Bob Meusel (Red Sox) also tallied hits in at least 50 consecutive games.
- Al Bridwell (Milwaukee), Frank Schulte (NY Yankees), Jake Daubert (KC Athletics), Ed Konetchy (Minnesota), Amos Strunk (Baltimore), and Fred Merkle (Milwaukee) all reached 2000 hits.
- Eddie Collins (KC Athletics) passed 2500 hits.

- Red Ames (Cubs) and Harry Krause (Red Sox) became the first two men to strike out 2500 batters.

World Series
- Baltimore defeated Boston, 5 games to 0.
- Bill Cunningham was the MVP. He went 10-15 with four homers, and drove in ten.
- Babe Ruth and Hack Miller both homered in Game One, but the Braves still lost, 9-5.
- Harry Coveleski (Baltimore) was huge in Game Two, allowing just one run as he went the distance in a 9-1 win.
- Rookie Cunningham had two doubles and two homers in Game Four, as the Orioles won 21-10, and won the four first games of the series in Charm City.
- Walter Johnson (Baltimore) sealed the sweep by allowing just a single run in Game Five.
- Joe Judge (Baltimore) was 11-18. Jack Tobin (Baltimore) had fourteen hits.
- Babe Ruth (Boston) went 7-9 with two homers against his hometown club.

Retirements
- Bill Bradley. Outstanding two-way third baseman who retired as the all-time leader in doubles and total bases, and third in hits with 2754. A career .283 hitter, with fourteen Gold Gloves. 1916 World Champion with Cleveland.
- Bill Carrigan. Catcher made three All-Star teams for the White Sox in the early 1910s. Won a Gold Glove and a Silver Slugger. Also played significantly for the Reds and Packers, finishing with 1509 career hits.
- Frank Corridon. Journeyman starter who broke out as a 37-year-old to win the AL Cy Young Award in 1918. Pitched for seven teams, never for more than five years in one place. Career 217-216 record, with an above average ERA.
- Pete Hill. Five-time AL MVP. Arguably the greatest player of his generation. 11-time Gold Glover in center field, five world titles and two WS MVPs with Boston in the 1900s. Extremely effective hitter, fielder and baserunner in the heart of the deadball era. Retires as career leader in steals and WAR.
- Tom Hughes. 253-game winner as a workhorse starter for the Cubs. Reliable moundsman with career 2.89 ERA, but also most career losses.
- Jimmy Sheckard. All-time leader in games, at bats, runs, hits, and walks. 2808 hits and seven All-Star bids, mostly for Brooklyn and Detroit. .287 career hitter.
- Ed Walsh. 1916 AL Cy Young award winner and world champion with Cleveland. Five All-Star appearances, five Gold Gloves, 258-213 career record with a 2.76 ERA. Minnesota's decision to trade him to Cleveland in 1912 is considered a blunder.

Draft
- Teams were allowed to protect 12 players in the expansion draft.
- St. Louis chose outfielder Amos Strunk (Baltimore) first.
- Tony Boeckel (Louisville) went to Indianapolis at #2.
- NL wins leader Tom Seaton (Braves) was sent to Toronto with the third pick.

Is there any way when players retire that you could mention ERA+ or OPS+? It's hard to tell if a 2.59 Career ERA is good with the rapidly changing environment in this league.

Retirements

- Ty Cobb. 1913 and 1914 AL MVP. Outstanding hitter who made 11 All-Star games and won five batting titles. Rings in 1914 and 1927. 3083 hits and a 156 OPS+, and would have accrued even more impressive stats if it weren't for recurring injuries.
- Harry Coveleski. 259-178 in long career for Reds, Cubs, Dodgers, Orioles, and Bears, winning two rings. 116 ERA+.
- Elmer Knetzer. 1925 NL MOP who broke out in his late 30s on the Braves dynasty. 211-156 record, but only a 109 ERA+.
- Harry Krause. Arguably the greatest pitcher of all-time. 384-216 record, 2.24 ERA and 146 ERA+. Eight Cy Young Awards, 1912 ALCS MVP, 1914 WS MVP, and two rings. Career leader in many stats, including wins, shutouts, and strikeouts.
- Erskine Mayer. Veteran hurler who was Knetzer's teammate with the Braves. 247-189, 116 ERA+.
- Steve O'Neill. One of the outstanding catchers of his generation. Ten All-Star teams, seven Silver Sluggers, and the 1920 WS MVP. Starting backstop for three championships with the Braves, and many other pennant-winners. 118 OPS+ and nearly 2000 games caught.

Changes
  • Random playoff rule - The World Series format is changed to 2 home, 2 away, 2 home, 2 away, 1 home.
  • Add fictional player - Technically not a fictional person, but I decided to add Don Bradman, the greatest cricket player of all-time, as a 22-year-old second baseman. He has very high potentials for contact and batting eye, and is a good fielder, but is not expected to ever be a good power hitter. The Don signed with the Cincinnati Reds, becoming teammates with Lou Gehrig.
  • Shorten schedule - Teams will now play 148 games in a season.

Notes
- The American League was very close, as six teams were still in contention with just four days left in the season. The White Sox won their last four games to hold off Detroit and St. Louis, taking the league title for the third time. Dale Alexander, High Pockets Kelly, and Red Ruffing starred for the Pale Hose.

- The Braves struggled, as veteran starters Pete Schneider and Joe Wood had poor seasons. Babe Ruth was two RBI shy of another Triple Crown.
- Gehrig finished in the top three of every Triple Crown statistic.
- George Ruth (Newark) made only eleven starts due to injury.
- Don Bradman (Cincinnati) was the Reds' starting second baseman, and the rookie had a respectable .196 average, 99 OPS+, and won a Gold Glove.
- Baltimore traded second baseman George Grantham to the Braves for starter Bert Cole and a minor leaguer.
- The Phillies traded All-Star first baseman Jim Bottomley to the Cubs for two pitchers.

- Paul Derringer (White Sox) went 15-7 with a 1.86 ERA in the American League, but his new team scored the fewest runs in the league. Dale Alexander (Cubs), the man who went the other way in the trade, hit 29 homers, and formed a mean tandem with Jim Bottomley.
