Please read all of this post....the link to the site is at the bottom!....but read it all first please!
-The USBL is a player sim where, if you wish that you can create 1 or 2 player(s) . This is NOT a team sim where you own a team but rather a team made up of individuals who are people who joined the league. You will join as a player either a pitcher or other position…just like MLB, then your player will be created in a game like Matchup Baseball for the computer and your player then can be signed on one of the existing teams run by a real owner. Your team and player will face other teams made up of fellow internet gamers, and your player will receive stats and such. Your player can get better by doing player upgrades, explained below….
Players are able to receive points by performing various tasks. There are 4 total things you can do, 2 on a weekly basis
-Interviews: You are allowed to make a player interview every week, for 1-5 points, depending on how good it is. You pretend to be your player and wrtite about anything pertaining to the league…examples can be found on the league message board.
-News Columns: News columns are also a weekly thing that you can do. It can be about anything involving the USBL or things of that sort. You will receive 1-10 points depending on how good it is.
- Player Sites: You can only make one player website for your player. It should contain things like your players made up baseball history, high school and college stats, etc. Again, examples found on the site message board. The site is worth anywhere from 1-10 points, depending on how good it is, the content, etc.
-Player Biographies: You can make a biography about your player, for 1-5 points. It can be about your player's childhood, history, etc
-There are also some miscellaneous things that you can do, which could be helping out the commish, things of that sort. The points rewarded for doing something like that is random.
-No harrasing other players, if you do than immediate action will be take place and that person could be suspended indefintly or even banned from USBL FOREVER.
All of the league's games will be simmed on Triple Play 2004 or Matchup Baseball.
- USBL is no way in affiliation with the MLB so you may not make a player who's name is "Alex Rodriguez" for example. Also their will be no innapropraite names such as Ben Dover or Jack Mihoff. If anyone sumbits either of those things than they will be kicked out of league and banned.
- Starting positions are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, RF, CF, SP. Each team must have one of each of those and in addition:SP, SP, RP, CP, and at least 1 bench player .
The league hasn’t started yet but the season starts tomorrow, you can be signed and playing on a team in no time! The league is free and is just for fun, but is a BLAST! If you’ve wanted to be a baseball player, or love video games like Madden or High Heat, or fantasy sports, this is for you! If you join you MUST JOIN THE MESSAGE BOARD to update your player, and please add somewhere in your email to join that SCABBRONUMBER1 recruited you…that’s important to me and would be nice!….thanks and IM me if you have questions…..scabbronumber1
