One main thing about these simulation leagues is that they use historical teams and recreate past seasons. Nothing wrong with that at all, but someone has found a unique way of doing this:
The World Baseball Hierarchy is a fictional baseball league played using Out of the Park Baseball.
It is a promotion / relegation league featuring nations that were involved in the World Baseball Classic of 2006. Each nation league is made up of two divisions of 4 teams each. Each season, the winner of each nation championship is promoted to the nation league directly above, while the worst team in each division is relegated to one of the two nation leagues the directly below.Now that's different. And to me, as an international guy, completely fascinating. If you play Out of the Park baseball, they are looking for new players. Drop them an e-mail.
Currently there are 88 active teams in 11 nation leagues, with plans to expand further in the future.
The seasons have been running from 2006 through 2017. Yeah, they're into the future. They have a complete listing of season and career stats, and this is a breakdown of the divisions:
They even have AAA, AA, and A leagues. Check out the site, and join up.
