A few years later BB Weekly, now (Sport Weekly) was born. USA Today geared their boxscores and bb section, to the fantasy crowd. What is that saying, You've come a long way baby? It's much tougher to win now, because the averge player is privy to so much info.
I know what ya mean Hootie!! I started playing back in 89/90 or so
with a contest sponsored by my local paper where you had to call in
to a special number to set up your team by using numbers listed to the player you wanted and I can remember grabbing copies of "The National " a great sports paper !!! to get better updates on all the teams!
