I have been toying with the idea of doing a OOTP historical replay with reader participation. This is how it would work: I would play out the 1901 season but starting in 1902 I would import ONE fictional rookie per year with this person being a reader of this blog. The reader would submit his full name with a non-offensive original nickname. Choose a realistic name if you would like to remain anonymous. You would then be able to follow your career and compare how you do to the all-time greats. ...and yes you will have a photo as I will create a fictional photo through the game using FaceGen.
As I have only 32 current followers of this blog, I would allow up to 2 entries per person. I would also ask for help in spreading the word for sign ups.
Debut years would be on a first come first serve basis but the earlier years would be better so the replay could get under way. I will also create the player with attributes that would hopefully lead to a longer career.
I need sign ups using the following template and I will sign up first for 1902:
Debut Year: 1902
Name: Chris Dungan
Primary Position: 2B
Secondary Position: SS
Origin: Elgin, Illinois
I will update the debut years as the sign ups progess....hopefully progress!
