Changed my original idea: I will go with famous philosophers. 

How does this work - we have a roster of 80 players ? Or do we have to pick out 25 or so ? 

Anyway, fun idea.

The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop. is absolute must reading for anybody who started with the APBA or Strat-O-Matic dice games and much later moved on to WIS.

You have an 80 man roster, but only 25 are active at a time.

I played APBA when I was a teenager.

I'll jump in with Charles Dickens characters. Can't wait to call up the Artful Dodger.

Will the AAA have real players names before we rename them? I don' like doing the gymnastics it takes to track down who is who.

You can't rename real players at all, even if they are AAA.

I believe AAA players with real "names" can be renamed.  I've got a team in a league waiting for the last team to enter and the real name AAA are eligible to be renamed.  I think FBD wants to know if owners are going to have look up all 80 players to find out who they really are...that would take quite a bit of time.  I only posted because I am considering entering a team.  Also, a question...what level of AAA players will be used?  Thanks.

Way above average AAA.

Per Admin.

If you choose real AAA players in a theme league, can you still rename them?

I could not find it in the database.
Thanks.

Hi Glen,

Thanks for the message. No, you would not be able to rename any real players, even if they are AAA players. Only the generated players can be renamed. Hope this helps!

Thanks.

Is there any way we can view our AAA players before the season starts?

My AAA players names have appeared and I can rename them, but I have not figured out a way to see their ratings.

I'd like to sign up with the Hartford Whalers, please.

If AAA are all Way above average, won't that lessen the need for 80 players since at that level we'd be getting plenty of decent full season high PA and IP players? Seems like we'd need to scramble to use more of them if they were below average or average, right?

You should've made the cap $255 mil then we could just draft all the top players & not have to change setting to get under a $20 mil cap!

Mine have appeared also.  Unless there is a way to see their stats or ratings, this would be nothing more than a crap shoot.

You will be able to see their ratings when the league schedule is generated.

Went with the max AAA to give people more players to rename.
