APBA LEAGUE INFORMATION
League Openings - A face-to-face Master Game league in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area is advertising for new managers in a well-established league. The 12-team league, playing a 99-game season mostly on "League Nights" in one of the manager's homes, has been in existence since the early 1970s and has included notable managers, such as Thatcher Longstreth and David Eisenhower. Most of the managers live along the "Main Line", though one commutes from Reading and another lives in southern New Jersey. In addition to the 12 active teams, there are 2 inactive teams that are available to new managers. It is a keeper league, using the new card sets. Draft occurs in late January (probably later next year), and the season begins shortly thereafter, winding up in October with playoffs and "World Series". If interested, please contact Dusty Welsh at
League Opening in TABL - The APBA Baseball League (TABL) is looking for a new member! Currently in our 50th season, we are seeking an APBA player (Master Game or computer player) to take over an established team, current playoff contenders who look to be just as strong next season. TABL has 20 teams, continuous ownership, 42-man rosters, and realistic usage limits. 84-game regular season schedule, eight-team playoff structure. The regular season starts in April, the playoffs start in October. TABL first played games in 1969 - we were inventors of the TABL Superchart, the Unusual Play Card, and the Error Distribution Card, facsimiles of which are currently in widespread use. At least two of our original members are now in the APBA Hall of Fame. Interested? For more info, contact Alan Speidel at my email address:
