The American Baseball Legion (ABL) is a brand new online simulation league for Out of the Park Baseball 18 (OOTP18). We are looking for dedicated General Managers who wants to be part of a league that can be special. Combined with an experienced commissioner (still running the same online league for 7 straight years), veteran GMs as well as new faces to the online part of the game, we are excited to see where the future of the ABL takes us.
The plan is to run the current baseball season to the mold of Major League Baseball with a few immediate changes (DH in NL, trading of draft picks, etc) and we will slowly and carefully become a league our own. We have plans for new stadiums, stadium upgrades, expansion teams and possible realignment heading into the near future. We are always looking for new ideas and outside of the box thinking to make the ABL a lasting, memorable and fun league.
Baseball is filled with history, lore, and names that are etched in the minds of every sports fan since we were kids. Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Cy Young, Pete Rose, Rickey Henderson, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Nolan Ryan, Greg Maddux and so much more BUT they had their time, its time for new players to become legends.
We are excited to enter the new age of baseball with amazing hitters like Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Mookie Betts and Francisco Lindor to just name a few. And as good as the young hitters are, the pitchers won't be outdone and led Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale and the new Big Three in NY, Noah Syndergaard, Jacob DeGrom and Matt Harvey.
Eras like the 'Deadball era', 'live ball era' 'World War 2','expansion', 'steroid era' all played a role in the past and shaped the way the game is today. Now we will set the tone for the game of the future and the time is here for the American Baseball Legion to make its impression and WE WANT YOU to help create the next great league!
