Dear SOM Fanatics -

2013 is going to bring a new and unique newsletter to help SOM Baseball Gamers called "The Ultimate Strat Baseball Newsletter", an online newsletter.

We have been collecting emails of people who want to be alerted as soon as it is ready,
there are a group of us who will be working on this together and we intend to do new
activities which have never been done before. The newsletter will be free - and if you
signup we have a few gifts to offer.  So if you say "I WANT IN" in the subject, and send
your request with your email to - we will add you to the list.

For those who may not know of me, when I was younger in the 70's and 80's I was quite
involved with the baseball game, had some articles in the Strat-o-matic Review and helped
with four or five conventions from 1974-1980 (I believe) in Illinois - Wolfman is my nickname
I received during league play - and our Skokie Wolfmen just won the 2012 CBA season
(a computer league that has been around for 16 years) - so lets celebrate the New Year
together as we present this dynamic new newsletter, not to replace what already exists
but to add on to and perform form alliances with many other groups. We already in discussion
with rezz dogg how we can work together - just sent him a few proposals and we appreciate
his willingness to help us get the word out - you guys are doing great here with all your
posts and forums - we will just be an interesting new add-on ...

Happy New Years Eve - to a great 2013 and success for your team(s) in the new year

Wolfman Shapiro

Updated on the Ultimate Strat Baseball Newsletter

Dear Fellow Villagers and Strat Family,

well we come now to the end of an amazing year, a year which has seen its ups and downs,
-- it has sure been interesting to act as an editor for our newsletter - we hope to have our
last 2013 issue (#7) out mid-December and could have one of the first employees of SOM
coming to share with our members.

We want to once again recognize rezzdogg for his support and help with the unfolding of our
publication in the early days - we still use part of his design he suggested for our pages plus
our members enjoy his and Michael's articles - this is a very pleasant memory for this year and
how powerful things can be when we work together to help and support each other!

I also was happy to work with Star Tournaments and Purestrat, who do both live and on-line
draft tournaments as we form the Strat Alliance this summer. And now, we have another special
opportunity to work with other well respected people in our community to bring forth some
special strategy documents - that is with (who do their yearly Rookie Review)
and the legendary Bruce Bundy, one of the best SOM baseball strategists and GM, a beta
tester for the game company and has developed the formulas to produce the SOM cards.
He is sharing now what he calls his 2013 SOM Projection Sheets so you can see the new
cards month ahead.

In the General Store I will be adding a post about a special offer our partners are giving
on their documents which is a promotion also to help the newsletter grow, it might be
of interest and can help you plan your strategies for your league or tournament
teams in 2014

everyone enjoy the holidays and perhaps part of the celebration will be time to
play the game we love,

all the best

Wolfman Shapiro
editor of the "Ultimate Strat Baseball Newsletter"
