i'm stupid, so please explain
The league will create its own average. Batters take a hit in the hitting categories and pitchers give up more runs than they normally would because they are facing better-than-All Star teams. Here
is a set of statistics that were ran a while ago. The league batting average was .286, the league ERA was 5.85. There were only 4 hitters who averaged more than 40 HR over the 10 year span and only 4 pitchers who had an ERA of less than 4 in the same span.
So far most people have expressed interest in playing under the the mid-1980's run enviornment which will shift more of the power to the pitchers than the 1994 enviornment those games were simulated under.
