The Skyline Baseball League is a fictional take on the real-life MLB

There are a few differences. The main difference is that the major league is not split up into 2 distinct leagues, but rather 6 regionally aligned divisions and 2 distinct regions.

Because of this, the playoff format is different; the best 2 teams in each division make the playoffs while there is a wild-card team for each region. The highest seed in each Region is given a bye while the remaining 6 teams in the Region battle it out to move on.

The season is 162 game with at least 12 games against each member in your division and a 3 game series against every other team.

The league was founded in 1980 and has operated continuously up until now, 2037. We simmed 20 years and then the human GM's took over. We did this because it gives the league an identity right from the start. There are no 30 year old players with no history. Secondly, you can use the history to properly evaluate the league environment. Instead of waiting 5 seasons and several months real-time, you can immediately see how things stack up. Sometimes with new leagues, things don't play out the way you planned. This file has been perfected through trial and error and it's completely ready to go with no changes needed.
