Western Canada Baseball is a history of semi-pro ball on the prairies up to the 1970s (with a new section on the early WCBL of 1907-1921). Hundreds of pages of game reports, rosters, photos, statistics, on baseball in Western Canada, the North-western USA and Southern Ontario's Intercounty League, during one of the most productive and tumultuous periods in North America.
Scoresheet Baseball is a simulation fantasy game in which you draft and manage a team of major league players in leagues with your friends & colleagues. There are leagues for those who wish to start from scratch and draft new rosters for each season and "perpetual" loops in which owners choose to keep a certain number of core players season to season.
Managing includes line-up decisions -- the best active 30-man roster, batting orders versus LHP & RHP, pitching rotations, whether to employ a closer, how much weight to give to defensive rankings. And, there's trading, of course, and the test of picking prospects. Weekly reports include box scores.
(Scoresheet also provides fantasy games for football, hockey and basketball fans.)
There was a time when CBC local television was quite the thing with local news, sports, drama, and special events coverage. CBLT, the Toronto station of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was a force in the country's largest market into the 1990s until continuing budget cuts crippled the operation. This site provides a glimpse at the breadth of talent at CBLT in a period from the mid 1980s to the late 1990s. he thing
