Hey all,

Just had a quick question. Wondering what, if any, game mechanics existed for season to season play? Do players get better? Wworse? Retire? Traded? Etc. Just wondering before I purchase.

Thanks!

The players are represented by cards that reflect how they performed in a particular season.

If you play with actual MLB players then they would get better, worse retire as they did in real life. You would simply purchase the new card set for the new year. The new cards would reflect the updated performance etc.

For the Baseball America fictional players you have the option of drafting or assigning the players to teams as you wish or playing them on pre-arranged teams (each card has a number that corresponds to a team). Each year a new set is available for purchase. The players will carry over from season to season and improve, worsen, retire or get traded. There will also be new "rookies" each year.

Hope that's what you needed

You could, especially if you're using fictional players, find a way to use randomizers to reflect changes in a player's qualities from season to season and make your own new cards that reflect that. You could then watch players "fill out" as their careers develop, and then start to fade away as they age and take injuries. Or perhaps retire unexpectedly at the peak of their powers....

I imaging Keith might use something similar in his annual fictional sets (or perhaps he does things in an effort to throw as big a monkey wrench as possible into managers' plans!).
