Not sure what the interest level would be but building 25 man rosters for each franchise made up of all-time players from 1901 to present day. I’m not that far yet - going alphabetically by team nickname and halfway thru Braves now. It’s time consuming and it’s not easy to pick 25 only and make sure there are backups at each position and so on. Trying to pick the “best” players but also guys who represent the franchise. (So not putting Clemens on the blue jays roster for example).



Anyway. Thought it’d be fun. I’ll share when finished.

Think I’ll make some Negro League all-stars as well....

Just finished the giants position players (still working on pitchers) and outfield of Ott, Mays and Bonds is gonna be tough for opposing pitchers to deal with.....

This has been a pretty fun exercise so far. Excited to finish th se all up and play some games with the resulting rosters.

This has been submitted as an upload...not sure how long the delay is before it appears...hopefully not too long.

I also sent to WM and I believe he is going to put it up at his Facebook page and elsewhere.....

I played one game so far - Giants v Indians...it was a fun 10 inning game with Manny hitting a walk-off 2 run HR to win it.



NEXT PROJECT - Negro Leagues......

Curious if anyone's used these rosters at all? I have used them a few times and have enjoyed the games but anyone else? Any requests for certain players I could supplement the roster with?
