Welcome to my new site, and thanks for stopping by to take a look! I’ve been replaying the 1978 baseball season since August 22, 1980, using Avalon Hill’s now-extinct Statis Pro Baseball board game, and I thought it would be fun to share my game results, stories, and photos with family, friends, and anyone else out there who might be interested, or extremely bored out of their minds.
I currently plan on playing at least one game per weekend, and to add new and updated information and articles on SP78 on a weekly basis, if not a daily one; as of right now I have six columns I plan on writing articles for, and a page of highlights, stats, and game info will be available after every game is played, and for all past games (eventually). I’ve played over 1,200 games thus far, with another 1,000 to go before the season ends, so there should be plenty of material for me to pick and choose from.
I was hoping to include team and player statistics, boxscores, and other game-related information, but I’m discovering the limitations of a simple blog site (including page and text layouts), so bear with me as I hopefully discover ways to fix these roadblocks, and learn a little code in the process. I found a possible solution in the Custom Design upgrade, that for starters will help with my font problems, but at $30 a year, I’ll have to first see what else it can do to help the site.
I’m going to leave this page untouched for a week, to give everyone a chance to read this introduction and check out these initial articles (which are related to games played on August 22nd of various years); on September 1st, I’ll begin adding new content, and this box will be used to display information for the next game I’ll be playing. There are still quite a few empty sections of the site, but that’s only because I wanted to get it launched by the 22nd; I’ll be filling up those spots over time, whenever I’m able, so keep your eyes peeled. And please, keep coming back! I beg of you!
