kinda surprised given the smaller field and the big walls that we've had so many strong pitching performances, especially a perfect game. also wtf is that ruth division lmao

It is spread a bit thin, isn't it? Probably the hardest one to organize, I mainly did it based on population.

Hoping to add another team to either the east coast or great lakes soon to make it at least a little better.

DECEMBER 2024

IMAGE: Philadelphia right fielder Ryan Doherty and shortstop Josh Thompson round the bases after Doherty hit a 3rd inning home run off of Toronto's Adam Lund. This early score set the mood for the evening, as the typically hapless Ringers rallied behind two further dingers by Julio Llanos to score a Christmas Day road win, 7-5.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE MONTH
*The UBL held the first of its annual Christmas Day games, with the scores as follows:
Seattle 3, Los Angeles 4
Portland 5, Dallas 9
Calgary 4, Bay Area 6
Las Vegas 11, British Columbia 2
Philadelphia 7, Toronto 5
New York 6, Atlanta 3
Miami 6, Chicago 7
Carolina 2, Houston 9

Dallas' Larry Skeen was declared the top player in the Christmas Day games, scoring 2 home runs, 4 RBIS and 2 runs against the Portland Beavers. As such, he was rewarded with the "Mug of Eggnog" trophy and a coupon entitling him to free Borden brand eggnog for the remainder of 2024. When interviewed, the shortstop expressed disappointment with the latter, saying he was allergic to dairy.
*Another Breakers player slammed 4 homers in one game - this time, it was LF Tony Puebla. Unfortunately, LA could not come away with the W this time, losing 8-7 to Portland on the road.

INJURY UPDATE
SP Hector Montes (TOR) - shoulder inflammation, out for 4 months
SP Pedro Renteria (LV) - torn ulnar collateral ligament, out for season
SP Wade Young (MIA) - unspecified shoulder injury, out for season
CL Bob Trader (BC) - forearm inflammation, out for 3-4 weeks
1B Jiao-Long Jiao (NYT) - chronic back soreness, out for 3-4 weeks

First of all, I think your league is actually pretty unique so far! Although I do have a few questions: 

1. How many teams make the postseason?
2. Are games televised or streamed at all? If so, then what networks televise and stream games?

Anyway, I am looking forward to updates on this league of yours! Go Pigeons!

1. 8 teams make the playoffs, two division winners and two wildcards from each conference. There's three rounds: the knockout series, the conference finals, and the Ultimate Cup Final, each lasting 7 games max.
2. UBL games can be seen on ESPN, TBS, TNT and ABC, along with affiliated streaming networks.

I really like where you're headed with this! this version of baseball seems like it would be a lot of fun to play. the league logo is solid, and I like the use of pink(s) as its main color(s) - very underused imo

I'm a big fan of the idea of the team logos as single-color icons. A lot of it reminds me of blaseball, in a good way - maybe especially chicago, since the firefighters used the fire emoji, which is very similar to the blazers' icon. unfortunately, I don't think the execution here works. I have to imagine that in-universe, the league is going that route to provide a sense of cohesion and brand unity, and I'm not getting that at all. also, some of your icons are very detailed - seattle's in particular is too complex to even be a logo, let alone an icon - while some of them are extremely simple, like vegas, which is almost certainly not going to be protected by copyright. I think this is a byproduct of you cribbing from a lot of different sources, which is fine, but the thing about icons like these is that they're pretty easy to create just by finding an image you like and tracing it. I'd recommend at least giving that a shot and seeing what you can come up with for some of these teams

sorry for that wall of text, but I want to see this league live up to its full potential! that of course also means adding a boston team, so get on that

Yeah, some of the teams I'm less happy with, like Seattle and Dallas, will be getting new icons after season one

Also, wait a few seasons, ther'll be an expansion council ;)
