October 9th, 2021 - Power Index
Power Index, a weighted average of your players’ skill index (SI), has now been added to the game. It’s a rough gauge of your big league team quality. It’s not necessarily an accurate measure of team strength though. Unlike the version in Hardwood, this power index seems to lack a meaningful dynamic range, so I’m considering some tweaks.

October 3rd, 2021 - Regular season begins Monday!
The cup kicks off Monday and league play starts on Tuesday. Please make sure you have your lineups and pitching set up for opening day.

October 2nd, 2021 - Coaching role realignment active!
I have turned off automatic coaching role assignment for managed teams. You can now do it manually by using the ‘Realign Coaches’ button on the Coaches page. If you want the game AI to align/optimize your coaching assignments, you can use the ‘Reset to Default’ button instead of the ‘Update’ button. This is a new feature…please let me know if you have any issues. Thanks.

October 20th, 2021 - Wright Wrong for Denver - “Papa Pearl” Prieto Picked - Denver Broncos
After being eliminated in the group stage of the cup for the second straight season, and after losing a 13th straight game, manager Gary Wright was fired by Denver. Wright had a dismal .330 league winning percentage during a time of having inherited a Cy Young winner and an MVP on his roster.

Papa Pearl Prieto was hired as the new manager. “We wish Wright well, but we are disappointed it had to end without the success we set out towards. Prieto is a laid-back personality who is capable of high quality work, but not a lot of non-baseball people have heard of him,” said Denver owner Ced.
