Mays vs. Ortiz in Next Game - And Adding All-Time Greats to Expand Teams

Watching David Ortiz lead a discussion in Birmingham about the MLB game last night at Birmingham's historic stadium in honor of recently departed Willie Mays, we decided on our next Statis-Pro baseball game. 

Using our all-time great Statis-Pro Baseball players sheets, we decided to put Ortiz' Boston Red Sox 2007 champs against Mays' New York Giants 1954 champs. You can play your own free game here.  Both teams are in our "Boston-New York Division" when we created five divisions of 12 all-time great teams ever. As we did with the Value Add Basketball game, we decided to add four teams to each division based on the best players of all-time not yet on a team. The four new teams we added to each division are in italics as the first four teams in each division, then the original 12 teams follow.

Right now we only have cards for the 12 teams not in italics, so just is just planned expansion. 

Next the 2007 Boston Red Sox will travel to 1954 to face the New York Giants, in a game in which pitchers will bat and deep drives only leave the park on a 11-38. The second game will be in 2007 in Fenway with the DH rule and deep drives of 11-58 going out of the park for home runs.
