In the 1st series of the AL in the best of 3 the 27 Yankees beat the 2001 Mariners 2-0 it was pretty much the murders row show with some good pitching thrown in. Every time the Mariners showed some life the Yankees would come right back and either shut them down with their pitching or turned up the heat with their hitting.
For the NL the 85 Cardinals got some great pitching to match the 65 Dodgers staff. The series went the whole 3 games with the Cards coming out on top. They held the Dodgers to a team batting avg of .191 & left their staff with a 4.37 era. They had some timely hitting in games 2 & 3 and in game 1 Koufax held them to 2 runs with 8 K's. However in game 2 the Red Birds pounded big D and tied the series with a 8-4 win. In game 3 they won 3-1 behind some really strong pitching by Danny Cox 0 ER & only 3 hits. And their bullpen was lights out in both wins not giving up any runs in 3 1/3 innings of relief. So far having a real blast with this tournament. Except for 4 teams these are the same teams that were in the Ultimate Tournament I located the list on ESPN.com. Will post when I finsih up the next 2 series.

Hi Guys,

 Just completed the 2nd series in my tournament and here is alittle update for these teams.

 The AL series 98 Yankees won their series against the 31 Phil A's 2 games to 1. It was a Chuck Knoblauch 3 run 9th inning walkoff homerun that won game 1 for the Yankees. However just to show you that it's not always about the team with the better stats that wins here are the team final stats for the series.
A's team batting avg: .272 & Era: 342 the Yankees team batting avg: .158 & Era: 4.85 The Yankees came up with the key hits when needed & were able to get the big outs in key situations. So now they move on & the A's go home to Philly.

 In the NL series the 67 St. Louis Cardinals made quick work of the 09 Pirates 2 games to none. The Cards had a team hitting avg: .333 & Era: 1.50. C. Flood & J. Javier batted .556, M. Shannon .500,     T. McCarver .428 The Cards bullpen had 3 innings of 1 hit o runs given up. The pitching was pretty much lights out in this series. The Pirates batted .203 avg & Era: 3.71 H. Wagner was held in check with a .143 batting avg. So it's back to Steel town for the pirates while the Cards wait to see who they play in Round 2 of the NL Spring Classic.

The next AL series match ups are: 1911 Philadelphia A's vs 1974 Oakland A's in the best of 3.
The NL series match ups are the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers vs 1906 Chicago Cubs in the best of 3.

Well guys I'll keep the updates coming as the Tournament moves on good luck with any projects that you may have going on.

 Hi Guys,

  Here is the update from series # 3 from my Spring Classic Tournament for the AL & NL.

 AL Series # 3 1911 Phil A's vs 74 Oak A's the boys from Philly took the series from the West coast boys 2-1. In the series the Phil A's hit .305 & Team Era 1.73, R. Oldring led the attack with a .458 avg. & S. Mcinnis knocked in 5 rbi's to lead the team, & E. Plank threw a 2 hitter & gave up 1 unearn run.
 For Oakland D. Green led the team with a .400 avg with C. Washington chipping in at .375. Mr. October was not Mr. Spring as he hit only .091.  As for the pitching staff C. Hunter got their only win & had a Era 2.00 & B. Odom's Era 1.23 in 7 1/3 innings pitched in relief with only giving up 3 hits & 1 ER. So Philly pretty much had their way in this series, with good pitching & hitting.

NL Series # 3 58 Brooklyn Dodgers vs 1906 Cubs the Bums took the series 2 - 0 with some outstanding pitching & timely hitting. They only hit .207 as a team & their staff Era 1.50 however C. Erskine threw a shutout in game 2 & D. Newcombe won game 1. Hitting was led by J. Gilliam's .429 avg followed by D. Snider .375 & R. Campanella .333 with 2 homeruns.
 For the 06 Cubs they only hit .230 as a team & the team Era 2.65 they were led in hitting by H. Steinfelt .500 & J. Evers .429 in pitching E. Reulbach lost a rough one 1-0 his Era 1.00 with 4 hits, 1 ER, which happen to be a homerun that did him and the Cubs in. The series did have some bright pitching and good defence by both teams in the series.

That '11 A's team is tough...as long as the frontline pitching holds out.

I found in my '11 replay that -- given extreme circumstances (extra-innings, injuries, etc.) -- they have little depth.  You really have to be ready to throw guys out there with little regard to modern theories of "rest."  I love Chief Bender, but Coombs got nicked a bit.

How do your brackets shape up now?

 Hi Guys,

  Just getting around to my updates for Series # 4 for the AL & NL in my Spring Classic Tournament.

 AL series # 4 1934 Tigers vs 1953 Yankees The boys from Motor City made quick work of the Bronx Bombers from N.Y. 2-0 It was the Tigers hitting .411 as a team with a staff Era 3.50 that handed the Yanks 2 straight defeats. In hitting the Tigers were led by G. Walker .750, G. Goslin .700, M. Cochrine .625, & B. Rogell .429.
 For the Yankees they hit .261 & their pitching staff threw batting practice with a Era 9.53. B. Martin was the only bright spot with a .429 avg while the Mick was held to a .125 avg. As far as the pitching staff there was really no one that was worth spaeking of in this update. So after the mauling was done it was the Yankees that went home dragging their tails between their legs 

 NL series # 4 1999 Atlanta vs 1971 Pirates. The south did rise again in this series after losing game one to come back and take the series 2-1. Neither team's starting staff pitched well in the series, As the Era's will indicate. For the Braves the team Era 5.19 and the batting avg .311 & for the Bucs team Era 7.20 & hitting .302 avg. So it was the hitting that stood out in this series as the stats prove. Atlanta's hitting stars were R. Klesko .556, W. Weiss .500, C. Jones .417 with 2 Hrs.  For the Bucs A. Oliver hit .667 & R. Hebner slammed 2 homeruns. The Pirates did have a 7 run 8th inning in game 1 along with 5 Hrs in the game. So in this slugfest series it was the Braves hitters who out hit the boys from steel town but not by much to win this series.

 Here are the teams schduled to battle it out in series # 5 of the first round of the Tournament:

 AL 1954 Indians vs 1961 Yankees looking for some real fire power out of this one.

 NL 2004 St. Louis Cardinals vs 1962 San Francisco Giants this should be interesting the Corn field boys of the midwest vs the city by the Bay.

Hi Guys,

  Well just finished up series # 5 of the AL/NL and here are some of the shocking highlights from the AL series.

  AL 54 Indians vs 61 Yankees well just when I thought that this would be a power surge series what a shock. The Indians won the series 2-0 but the big SURPRISE was that B. Lemon & M Garcia threw back to back complete game shutouts against the big bad Yankees. The Yanks had a total of 10 hits in the 2 combined games & only compiled 2 walks & K'ed 9 times. The Indian stats batting avg: .167    Era 0.00 as you can see the Yankees staff wasn't that bad but Leman & Garcia were lock the doors and turn out the lights the parties over. Hitting stars for the Indians were B. Avila .429 & J. Hegan .333. 
 The Yankees never could mount much of anything with their power bats. They hit .154 & Era 3.18 and they to only gave up 10 hits in the 2 games.  Their hitting stars were E. Howard . 375 & T. Kubek .286 below par Mantle hit .143 & Maris .125 and the power house team of the 60's hit no homeruns. They pitched well enough to have won but again it was the Indians pitching that stole the show. So the Bronx Bombers drop nothing but duds and away they go.

 NL 62 S.F. Giants vs 2004 St. Louis Cardinals The Giants out slugged the Cards in this series & took both games to win the series 2-0. Their pitching staffs Era: 3.00 & team batting Avg: .305 Their hitting stars were W. Mays .500, & H. Kuenn .364 and they smacked the Cards staff around pretty good. The 2nd game did go 12 innings before the Giants took the led for good and wrapped up the series.
 The Cardinals just couldn't come up with the big hits when they needed to. Their hitting stars were    S. Taguchi .500, L. Walker .429, A. Pujols .300, & E. Renteria .300. As for their pitching staff they really had no bright spots their staffs Era: 5.40 and C. Carpenter got lit up to the tune of a 10.80 Era. Who ever came out to pitch for the Cards were lit up like a christmas tree. So in the end the city by the bay had the Cardinals sitting on the dock of the bay all alone and nowhere to go but home.

Next up for the AL 93 Toronto vs 2004 Red Sox  /  NL 77 Phillies vs 82 Brewers: The cross over team from the AL for this tournament as in the Ult. Tournament format.

Hi Guys,

  Finished the AL final 3 series of round one of the Spring Classic Tournament and these are the results:

 93 Toronto beat the 2004 Red Sox 2 -1 in the best of 3 games. Here the final stats for this series.
Toronto: Team Avg: .261 the Era: 3.12 Toronto got some good starting pitching from their staff and their relief pitching was led by D. Cox Era 0.00 3 hits given up in 3 innings of relief with 1 BB & 1 K.
A. Leiter: Era 0.00, 0 runs, 0 hits, 2 K's in one inning of relief. Their hitting attack was led by R. Alomar avg: .455, D. White .444, & P. Molitor .333. They pretty much pounded the Red Sox staff except for C. Schilling who won game 1 of the series. But after that they hit the rest of the staff as if it was BP. So the team from North of the border made easy work of the Green Monster Gang.

2004 Red Sox starting pitching were their undoing in this series against the Blue Jays. Except for C. Schilling who won game 1 of the series P. Martinez got lit up for an Era: 7.36 & B. Arroyo Era 9.00 and the over all staff Era: 5.40 not a whole lot of bright spots in this series. As far as hitting the team avg: .255 and they were led by K. Youkilis .500, D. Mientkiewicz . 429, & O. Cabrera .364. It was Toronto's pitching and their steady hitting attack that wore down the Red Sox staff in the end. So as the Blue Jays move on, it's back to bean town for so home made clam chowder & a night at Cheers.

AL final game stats for round 1 continued:

88 Oakland A's with their solid pitching and some timely hitting led them to victory in this series against the 70 Orioles. The pitching staff Era: 2.67 was led by D. Stewart's master piece in game one against J. Palmer. Stewart threw a 3 hit shutout and Palmer lost evan though he gave up only 1 run on 4 hits. It was a classic pitchers dual. However after that it was the M. McGwire show in game 3 as hit knocked in 6 rbi's on 3 Homeruns. And that was all for the Orioles in this series. The A's hit .286 as a team and the staff Era: 2.67 their hitting assult was led by C. Landford .417, W. Weiss .400, & S. Javier .400. So the Bash Boys from the Bay area plucked the feathers of the inner harbor birds from Baltimore.

70 Orioles were done in by some light weight pitching except from J. Palmer and some really flat line life support hitting, a team Avg: ,187 and the team Era: 4.15 over all. To say that the lineup couldn't swat a fly let a lone a baseball would be an over statement. D. Johnson .417 was the only hitter that did anything. The Robinson's didn't show up and big Bogg hadn't woken up yet from his winter nap. So it's back to Baltimore for some crab cakes and a stroll along the inner harbor for these birds.

32 Yankees came from behind after game ones poor showing of 1 run & 4 hits that D. Leonard threw at them. It woke up the sleeping giant who went on to win the next 2 games and take the series from the Royals. They were led by their timely hitting and their solid relief pitchers who saved the weak performance by the starters. The staff Era: 6.23 and their hitting team Avg: .280. Again it was some timely hitting that pulled them back into this series. They were led by T. Lazzeri .455, E. Combs .385, F. Crosetti .364, & B. Ruth .300 with 7 rbi's 5 in game 3. The iron horse L. Gehrig .167 was held in check for the series with only 1 hit however I can't see that lasting very long. So in the end it was the Broad Way show from N.Y. that got the curtain call while K.C. got the court jester.

77 Royals only bright spot was in game 1 as D. Leonard pitched a 4 hit 1 run gem against these big bad boys from the city that never sleeps. However in the next 2 games the Bronx gang put the Royals to sleep for good. The K.C. pitching staff got pushed around to the tone of a team Era: 6.48 and the hitting attack was put in check with a team Avg: .258. The hitting stars for the Royals were T. Poquette .500, A. Cowens .333, & G. Brett .308. The final 2 games of this series was all New York and very little from the Royals. So as they departed New York on their way back to K.C. it was like the last big cattle drive just nothing but alot of dust to choke on.

Some final over all stats from round 1 of the tournament:

Hitting leaders: G. Walker .750, 34 Det, G. Goslin .700, 34 Det, M. Cochran .625 34 Det'
Homeruns: 3 M. McGwire 88 Oakland
Rbi's: B. Ruth 7, 32 N.Y.Y. / M. McGwire 6, 88 Oak.
Saves: 2 D. Eckersley 88 Oak, / D. Ruether 2  27 N.Y.Y.
K's: J. Coombs 9,  27 N.Y.Y.
Stolen Bases: 2 B. North Oak.

Round 2 matchups:

1. 1911 Phil A's vs 1927 N.Y. Yankees
2. 1934 Detroit vs 1998 N.Y. Yankees
3. 1954 Cleveland vs 1932 N.Y. Yankees
4. 1993 Toronto vs 1988 Oakland A's

I will be posting the NL results in a day or two and will update as the tournament moves along. Thanks guys hope your enjoying the up dates as much as I'am playing this tournament.

Hi Guys,

 This is the NL update for the first round of the Spring Classic Tournament:

1977 Phillies won hands down 2 games to 0 over the 1982 Brewers. It was great pitching and timely hitting that knocked the foam off the beer heads. S. Carlton threw a 3 hit shutout in game won and the Brewers never were able to recover. The Harvey Wall Bangers only hit 1 homerun and the Phillies staff gave up only 3 runs & their team Era 1.50 was the reason for this flat offensive showing. The Phillies got timely hitting and they were able to hit for team Avg. 2.90 in the series. So I guess you can say that the Phillies raised their mugs and gave the Brewers a cold one for the road.

1982 Brewers did not get any Brotherly love in Philly as they were beaten up by the Phils 2 games to 0.
The Brewers bats went extremly flat to the taste of .194 & the staff Era 4.76 shows why they did not win a game in this series. As far as their hitting stars P. Molitor .333 & D. Money .333 and that was all folks. Other then P. Vuckovich's game against S. Carlton where he gave up 2 runs in the lost that was it for the Brewers. So as we bid them farewell from the tournament they were unable to wash down their cheesesteaks with a good brew they just choked on it all the way back to Milwaukee.

1977 Dodgers won this series 2-0 over the not so amazing 86 Mets. And they did it with lights out pitching. Their staff Era 1.00 thanks to B. Hooten & T. John who were just plain naste in the 2 games. The Mets looked like the 62 team in this series you know Boys to Men. The Dodgers hit for a team Avg: .265 however they made their hits count when needed. Their hitting stars were B. Russell .500, D. Lopes .333, S. Garvey .333, & R. Cey .333. And they supplied the big homeruns 5 of them when it counted the most. So not everyone is amazing in Hollywood just the Dodgers.

1986 Mets lost this series in a big way as L.A. lit up the N.Y. staff like the lights on Broadway. Their team staff Era: 6.88 and their batting Avg: .210 now those are the numbers that even the Stock Market would fear. R. Darling era: 10.38 & D. Gooden 12.27 no wonder the fans are running out of the theater in droves what a horror show this was. As far as hitting D. Strawberry .500 & L. Dykstra .500 and that was it. So in this one the bright lights of Hollywood were brighter then those on Broadway.

1957 Milwaukee Braves scalped the 1975 Big Red Machine 2-0 in this series. It was the great W. Spahn who set the tone in game 1 with a 5 hit shutout of the Reds. And combined with L. Burdette they gave the machine a tone up with allowing only 4 runs in the 2 game series. Their staff Era: 2.00 and their team batting Avg: .351 were to much of a load for the machine to hold up under. The hitting stars for the Braves were H. Aaron .500, J. Adcock .500, with 4 rbi's & B. Burton .444 with 2- triples & 1 double. So this is one tribe that is on the war path and they are the ones who look like the machine that is steam rolling along,watch out.

1975 Reds, well this machine looked like it was running low on oil against the 57 Braves. The pitching staff spuddered along with a team Era: 7.41 and the machine batting Avg: .224 was the reason for the blown engine. They knocked in a total of 4 runs in the 2 games and their hitting stars were P. Rose .500, J. Morgan .429, & K. Griffey .375 and those were the only cyliners that were operational. I was surprised how easy they shutdown and rolled over for the Braves in this one I really thought that this had the makings for a classic match up instead the Big Red Machine never cranked over so they got pushed to the side of the road in this one.

The following are some of the final stat leaders for round #1:

Hitting: A. Oliver .667 Pirates                 Pitching J. Tudor 12 K's     SB: W, McGee 2 Cardinals
           C. Flood .556 Cardinals              Hr's: C. Jones- 3
           J. Javier .500 Cardinals                      G. Williams - 3

The 2nd round match ups are:

99 Atlanta vs 85 Cardinals
77 Phillies vs 67 Cardinals
77 L.A. Dodgers vs 55 Brooklyn Dodgers
57 Milwaukee Braves vs 62 S.F. Giants

Well I'll keep updating as the tournament moves along.

Well the 27 Yanks just knockout the 1911 Phil A's and will be moving on to the semi finals. Their still waiting to see who they match up with. However I agree with you I have had them in some of my other tournaments and they have never won it all. So I'll see, they still have some pretty good teams left to play against. I will keep posting the results of the SCT as it moves along.

Hi Guys,

 Just finished up round 2 of my Spring Classic Tournament for both the AL/NL and this is the stats for the AL I will post the NL in a day or two.

27 Yankees vs 1911 Philadelphia A's: The Yankees won this series 2 -1 the A's won game one of the series then the Bronx Boomers wokeup in a big way the next 2 games as they steam rolled the A's. They were led by L. Gehrig .441 & B. Ruth .433 the team Avg in the tournament so far is .326 with a team Era of 4.18. They are pounding the ball around the park and their pitching is being led by W. Moore 2 wins 0 lost and a Era 2.22. So murders row moves on to their next victum in the semi finals.

1911 Philadelphia A's well they fell to the 27 Yankees like alot of teams do. In the series the team hit .342 and had a team Era of 4.58. The team was led by S. McInnis .500, J.Lapp .438, J. Barry .417 & B. Lord .407. The starters had a rough time in the tournament as you can see with a team Era 4.58 just to shine the light on those guilty of adding to their exiting: Chief Bender 4.00, E. Plank 4.50, & J. Coombs 6.52. So as you can see it wasn't their lack of hitting that did them in it was the starting pitching. So Philly is on their way back to the city of brotherly love for some home town booing.

98 Yankees vs 34 Tigers The Yankees won this matchup 2-0 the Yanks did it with timely hitting and getting the tough outs when they needed to. Their only hitting as a team .211 and their staff Era 4.70 it's amazing how their moving on in this tournament to the semi's. You know that their are other teams sitting home saying "what are you kidding us". But they must be using mirrors however they are winning but for how long that is the question? The top hitters are T. Martinez .389 & T. Raines .300 and their starters are O. Hernandez 1 win era 3.00, D. Cone 4.97 1-1, & D. Wells 0-0 Era 7.11 So look out if you have to play this team in the next round they may have you scratching your heads like the rest of us.

34 Tigers well here is a team that was hitting .376 as a team with an Era 4.63 they had been slapping teams pitching staffs around through out this tournament. And yet here they are outside the cage looking in at the rest of the animals. They were being led by G. Goslin .579, G. Walker .500, & J. White .389. However it was their starting pitching that let them down S. Rowe 1-0 era 4.50, T. Bridges 1-1 era .400. So as they packup and head back to motor city there isn't much to roar about.

54 Indians vs 32 Yankees The tribe beat the Yanks 2-1 to move on in the series. They haven't over powered anyone with their bats however they have gotten some decent pitching with a team Era of 3.99 and when you throw in a team Avg of 2.58 it says big hits when needed. The staff is led by B. Lemon 2-0 era 1.85, M. Garcia 1-1 3.05 era. In hitting W. Westlake .500, L. Doby .333, & V. Wertz .310. So evan though they have not impressed alot of teams they seem to find a way to scalp them.

32 Yankees what can you say about a team with a staff Era 6.49 & a team Avg .261 that any true baseball fan couldn't tell you. Poor pitching & weak hitting has done this team in. L. Gomez 0-2 6.61 era, R. Ruffing 0-1 era 9.95 and the hitting stars T. Lazzeri .400, B. Chapman .357, & B. Dickey .348. other than this it was really a bad showing by a team that was expected to do more. This is one Yankee team that may not be welcomed back in New York with open arms. Lady freedom has blown out her torch to light the way for them.

93 Toronto vs 88 Oakland A's This was a series that was won 2-0 by the Jays their hitters over powered the A's staff. They had a team Avg .307 & a team Era 2.83 so combined with great pitching this was a lights out series. Their top hitters were R. Alomar .421, P. Molitor .389, J. Carter .333, & D. White .313. The team has put together a resume of 2 Hr's, 8 Doubles, & 4 Triples so far in the tournament. Put that together with P. Hentgen 1-1 Era 1.84, M. Eichhorn 1-0 2.31 era, & J. Guzman 1-0 6.39 era and there you have it a winning team moving on to the semi's. This team is going to be hard to beat if they continue playing like this. So it was just a little to cold north of the boarder for the Bay boys to enjoy their stay.

88 Oakland well just look at these stats for the tournament and you will figure why this team is going home to the bay area. The staff Era 5.11 & hitting Avg .244 combine those two together and yes your going home a loser. D. Stewart 1-1 1.72 era, B. Welch 0-0 1.72 era, & S. Davis 1-0 8.64 their hitting stars R. Hassey .300, C. Lansford .300, & M. McGwire 4 Hr's & 8 rbi's. They played ok in the 1st round but in this series they were over matched against the Jays. So as we watch the sun set in the west with it goes the A's and their California dreaming.

So here are the semi matchups for round # 3 for the Spring Classic Tournament the winners of this round move onto the AL Championship Series for a chance to play for it all against the NL Winner.

1927 New York Yankees vs 1954 Cleveland Indians
1993 Toronto Blue Jays vs 1998 New York Yankees

Like I said earlier I will post the NL stats in a day or two hope you enjoyed the update.

Looks to me like you can't go wrong putting your money on the Yankees.

Good to see everything get updated.

My 1911 Jack Coombs has been bounced around a bit, too.

Hi Guys,

 Well here is the updates for the NL Spring Classic Tournament 2 round.

99 Atlanta Braves vs 85 St. Louis Cardinals In this series the Braves used their power to set the table for 2 easy wins over the Cards. So far in the Classic they are 4-0 and are hitting a team Avg. .278 with 10 homeruns. Their pitching has been pretty solid with a Era 3.38. Their leading hitters are W. Weiss .444, R. Klesko .400, A. Jones .320, & C.Jones .280 with 3 Hr's. Pitching G. Maddux W-1 L-0 2.57, K. Millwood W-1 L-0 3.32, & J. Smoltz W- 1 L-0 3.60.  It was the power of the Braves bats that shot down the birds pitching staff.

85 Cardinals never got out of the nest in this series. Their hitting was really weak .251 as a team their hitting stars were A. VanSlyke .462, T. Pendleton .400, & W. McGee .368. They did get some good pitching at times but again the long ball did them in. J. Tudor 1-1 3.18, J. Andujar 0-1 2.25,               D. Cox 1 - 0  0.00 so as you can see it just wasn't in the cards for them to move on.

77 Philadelphia Phillies vs 67 St. Louis Cardinals The Phils won this series 2-0 and have really played well in the Classic so far. Their hitting a team Avg. .312 & the Era 3.25 has been solid. S. Carlton W-2 L-0 1.59 & L. Christenson W-2  L-0 4.20. Hitting has not been this teams problem so far they have been very strong in this area of the game. M. Schmidt .412, B. Boone .412, G. Maddox .358. And the Cardinals found that out as the Phillies showed them no brotherly love instead they rung the Cards pitching staff like it was the liberty bell.

67 St. Louis Cardinals Did not play very well in this series like they had in the first series of the Classic. They left runners stranded time & time again. The Pitchers had a team Era 5.14 & they hit a team Avg. .317 so you see that they did put runners on the bases but couldn't get them in. In the area of pitching D. Hughes W-1 L-0 3.58, B. Gibson W-0 L-1 5.14, N. Briles W-1 L-1 7.00. Their hitting stars were C. Flood .556, J. Javier .412. However as a team they had 0 homeruns in the Classic and so the got their feathers plucked & their wings were clipped they better hope there is a strong tail wind as they head home. 

77 Los Angeles Dodgers vs 55 Brooklyn Dodgers. Well now you know why they moved West the L.A. team won this series 2-0. Brooklyn looked like those bums that sit on the corners of New York. When they looked up the L.A. crowd just kept walking by. The L.A. Dodgers won this series with great pitching and solid hitting. They have hit a team total of 12 Homeruns so far and their hitting a team Avg. .296 the hitting stars are D. Lopes .412, S. Garvey .389, S. Yeager .385, & R. Cey .357 with 4 Hr's. The pitching has been lights out team Era 1.50 B. Hooten W-2 L-0 1.02, T. John W-2 L-0 2.16. This team looks to be very tough and I see them possibly moving into the NL finals if they keep up this pace. What ashame for Brooklyn they acted as if they never got off the plane, they might as well turn the plane around and fly back to N.Y.

55 Brooklyn Dodgers well they had the chance to get some payback for the N.Y. fans from the 50's. However they played like a bunch of oldies that had no beat. Their hitters swung the bats to the Avg. .217 their stars in this area were J. Gilliam .455, R. Campanella .357 & 2 Hr's, D. Snider .313. The pitching got knocked around to an Era 4.89 C. Erskine W-1 L-0 .000 D. Newcombe  W-1 L-1 7.50. There was really no highlights for them they just seem to roll over and took the beating. So the bums of the 50's remained bums really would have liked to see them move on.

1957 Milwaukee Braves vs 62 San Francisco Giants In this series it was very interesting when they took the field the Giants came from behind to win the first game. However the next 2 games came down to who was going to out hit the other. And the Braves bats stepped up and did the job but it wasn't easy. The team has batted .286 & their Era 3.26 and this the reason for them moving on. Pitching is led by W. Sphan W-1 L-1 .400, L. Burnette W-1 L-0 .615, B. Buhl W-0 L-0 2.25 & their bullpen has done a good job for them. In the hitting department J. Adcock .500, H. Aaron .440 2 Hr's & 11 hits, W. Covington .421 7 Rbi's So as this team moves in to the semi's I still believe that they could make it to the NL finals.

62 S.F. Giants This team battled in the series but just could never could get over the hump. The team hit for an Avg. .245 & Era 3.42 they got some solid pitching but just could never come through when they had to. Pitching leaders D. Larson W-0 L-2 3.24, J. Sanford W-2 L-0 4.20, B. Pierce W-0 L-0 2.65. In batting the stars were W. Mays .333 6 Rbi's J. Pegan .286, & J. Davenport .287. This team just seem to miss the boat so they'll just have to sit on the lock of the bay and wait for another day.


These are the Semi Matchups for round 3 of the Classic:

99 Atlanta vs 57 Milwaukee

77 Philadelphia vs 77 Los Angeles Dodgers

 Well update when the finals for the AL/NL are completed have a good day guys.

Hi Guys,

 Well here are the updates for the AL semi-finals of the Spring Classic Tournament.

27 New York Yankees vs 54 Cleveland Indians In this series the Indians took game one then the Yankees came back strong and took the next 2 games. The Yankees will advance to the AL finals with the following stats: Team Batting Avg: 326 & Era: 4.18 the leaders in hitting are L. Gehrig .441 11 Rbi's, 3 Hr's, 15 Hits, B. Ruth .433. & J. Grabowski .417. In pitching W. Moore 3 Wins 0 Loses Era 2.22. So as you can see they are just pounding teams with their lineup. The pitching is doing enough to get by as their hitters take BP. In this one Cleveland didn't stand a chance after game one but so far who really has. So look out for murders row for they not only scalped the Indians but they took all the feathers in the war bonnets with them. Now it's on to Toronto and a chance to collect some more feathers for their own war bonnets.

54 Cleveland Indians They played well in the tournament however the lack of hitting caught up to them in this series. The pitching was pretty good at times but they just had some bad innings that cost their chances to advance. B. Lemon was 2-0 1.85 but they needed more then him to help them. In hitting they were led by W. Westlake .500, L. Doby .333 with 6 Rbi's & 2 Hr's, V. Wertz .310 2 Hr's. Well as they head back to Cleveland they are no longer the feared warriors just a team of 25 little indians.

93 Toronto Blue Jays vs 98 New York Yankees They lost game 1 and battled back in games 2 & 3 to move past the Yankees. They hit a team .272 Avg & a Era 2.70 however their relief pitching was outstanding through out the Classic. They won this series with good pitching and timely hitting and shear grit. The hitting leaders R. Alomar 9 Rbi's & 13 hits, P. Molitor .333, J. Carter 9 Rbi's 10 hits. Pitching was sound A. Leiter 1 win 0 lost 0.96, P. Hentgen 1 Win 2 Lost 2.14 and the bull pen were lights out when they got a lead. So as they dimmed the lights on Broadway the Northern lights got brighter. Now that one N.Y. team left now a stronger one is about to blow into town with winning it all on their mind.

98 New York Yankees were the team that had us scratching our heads they won game one of this series then came back to lose 2 in a row. Their team Avg. .213 & Era 4.39 in hitting T Raines .286, & T. Martinez .259. In pitching M. Staton 2-0 0.00 in relief, D.Cone 1 -2 4.64, D. Wells 1-0 5.03, O. Hernandez 1-1 5.17. This was a team that surprised the teams they played but the fun came to an end north of the border. Using mirrors or not they stayed around a lot longer then some teams that were better then they were.

 So here is the finals match up for the AL:
1927 New York Yankees vs 1993 Toronto Blue Jays

The winner will play the NL winner for the title of the best team of the Spring Classic.
I will post the NL stats sometime soon.

Hi Guys,

 Up dates for the NL Spring Classic Tournament.

1957 Milwaukee Braves vs 1999 Atlants Braves. Well this series went to the Older Braves 57, 2-0.
They pretty much battled it out in game one and in the bottom of the 10th D. Rice pinched hit for the pitcher and smashed a walkoff homerun to win it for the older brothers. In game 2 it was wasn't as close as the 57 Braves won it 8-3 to clinch the series. So far these are their stats for the tournament. Team hitting stats .276 & Era 2.96 so they are getting good pitching and really good bull pen efforts along with some decent hitting when needed. Pitcher B. Buhl 1-0 1.65 Era in 16 innings is really pitched outstanding for them. And in hitting J. Adcock .500, W. Covington .391, & H. Aaron .379. This team is on their way to the finals after the older brother taught the younger brother what it takes to be a winner.

1999 Atlanta Braves: They played well throughout this tournament but ran into a hot team who matched their pitching efforts and out hit them in the series. After the heart broken first game they couldn't bounce back. Their pitchers did well in the tournament with a team Era 3.71 & hit .266. The starters were strong but the bull pen let them down in this series. Their hitting stars were R. Klesko .435, W. Weiss .400, & C. Jones .310 they did hit 12 homeruns as a team and that is what really carried them until now. So it's back down south for these young Braves as they watch their older brothers move on to the finals.

1977 Philadelphia Phillies vs 1977 Los Angeles Dodgers. This was a very interesting series both of these teams had good staffs going at each other and the Phillies hitting took control of the series and they won 2-0 over the Dodgers. In pitching S. Carlton is 3-0 with a 1.38 Era, L. Christenson is 2-0 .352 Era, & T. McGraw has 2 saves 2.25 Era their hitting stars have been B. Boone .458 with 11 hits, G. Maddox .333, B. McBride .304, M. Schmidt .304 the team has hit 11 doubles in the tournament so far. As a team they are hitting .290, & pitching Era 2.73. So they will be moving on to the finals to play 57 Milwaukee Braves for the NL Championship. As for the Dodgers this was a very disappointing time in the city of brotherly love. So it's back to glitter town with nothing to show for their efforts but a bad review.

1977 Los Angeles Dodgers This was a team with some great pitching however at the end it was also their undoing in the end. They hit for a team Avg .257 & their Era 1.79 showed that they had the starting pitching to lead them to the finals. But they ran into a very hot Phillies team that out hit them in this series and so there you have it. Their starting pitchers stats D. Sutton 0-1 1.13 era, B. Hooten 2-0 1.38 era, & T. John 2-0 2.16 era. In hitting their stars were S. Garvey .407, B. Russell .360, D. Lopes .320, & R. Cey .300 with 4 Hr's. This was a team who's starting pitching could match up with anyones. However in this series they could not get the big hits like they had earlier in the tournament. This was a good story in the beginning but the ending came up short so no awards or walks down the red carpet for this cast.

The NL Championship series match ups will be:

1957 Milwaukee Braves vs 1977 Philadelphia Phillies

I will up date the stats for the finals when I complete the series this should be and interesting series.

Hi Guys,

  These are the final stats for the Finals of the Spring Classic Tournament AL/NL.

1927 New York Yankees vs 1993 Toronto Blue Jays the Yankees won the series 2-1 to move on to the Championship Series. It was their hitting that just over powered the Jays in games 1 & 3. In game 1 the Yankees won 8-1, game 2 they lost 5-4, & in game 3 they won 8-3. Their line up has just been hitting the ball all over the park. The team Avg. .312 & the Era 3.80 so far for the tournament. The leading hitters have been: J. Grabowski .417, L. Gehrig .400 18 hits,14 rbi's & 4 Hr's, M. Koenig .386 17 Hits, 13 rbi's, B. Paschal .385 15 Hits, 6 rbi's, & B. Ruth .341 14 Hits, 8 rbi's & 3 Hr's. On the pitching side W. Moore 3 Wins 0 Lost 2.22 Era, H. Pennock 2 Wins 0 Lost Era 2.51, W. Hoyt 2 Wins & 1 Lost Era 3.64. The teams overall record for the tournament is 8 Wins & 3 Lost. They are 8 Wins & 3 Loses so far. This series they just went right after the Jays and plucked all their feathers and left them standing out in the cold. So as this team moves onto the Championship series they appear to have to be the favorites to win it all. But the NL champions may have something to say about it.

1993 Toronto Blue Jays just never seem to get a chance to leave the nest and fly in this series. The 27 Yankees gave them all that they could handle and then some. The Jays played well in the tournament up to this series then they ran into this killing machine called murders row. They hit for a team Avg: 271 & a staff Era: 3.75. They were led by R. Alomar .462 18 Hits & 10 rbi's, P. Molitor .333 13 Hits, J. Olerud .316 with 12 Hits, & J. Carter .295 13 Hits & 12 rbi's. The pitching staff was solid for most of the series led by P. Hentgen 2 Wins & 2 Loses Era: 2.83, M. Eichhorn 1 Win 0 Loses Era: 3.14, A. Leiter 1 Win 1 Lose Era: 3.63, & D. Ward 1 Sv 5 innings pitched in relief 0 Hits & 0 Runs given up.  The team finished with a 7 Wins & 2 Losts in the Tournament pretty good record but they just couldn't handle the Yankees cut & dice machine that rolled in on them like a blizzard. So they had to fly back up north and nest for the remainder of the tournament.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

In the NL Finals it went down to 3 games to decide the winner just like in the AL Finals.

1957 Milwaukee Braves vs 1977 Philadelphia Phillies The Braves scored alot and often in this series against the Phils pitching staff. They have hit pretty good in the tournament as a team their Avg .274 & staff Era: 3.39 so it's been a nice combo for this team who seems to be on the war path to the Championship series. They have been led by the hitting of J. Adcock .429, W. Covington .375 12 Hits 9 rbi's, H. Aaron .333 with 14 Hits, 3 Hr's, 9 rbi's, J. Logan .333 14 Hits, & E. Mathews .297 11 Hits & 6 doubles in the tournament. The staff is being led by B. Buhl 2 Wins 0 Lost Era: 1.48, L. Burdette 2 Wins 0 Lost 3.23 Era, G. Conley 1 Win 0 Lost 3.00 Era & in relief D. McMahon 1 Win 0 Lost & 1 Save. His Era: 0.96 5 innings pitched 5 hits 1 run & 12 K's the staff has done a nice job of getting them into this position for a Championship. Their team record for the tournament is 8 Wins & 2 Losts that's the best record for any team. However as they move onto the Championship series they will have their work cut out for them if they want to hold the title of the best team in this years Spring Classic. This is one team that is prepared to go all the way just ask the Phillies as they were sent packing this was no Rocky story just a plain old beating.

1977 Philadelphia Phillies they played very well up to this series but then they could not get out of the way of the knock out punch. They hit for a team Avg. .286 & pitched to the tune of a staff Era .384 and finished with a team record of 7 Wins & 2 Lost. They were led by B. Boone .429 15 Hits & 4 doubles, B. McBride .400 14 Hits, 8 rbi's & 5 doubles with 9 runs scored, G. Maddox .342 13 Hits. In pitching S. Carlton 4 Wins 0 Lost Era 2.31, L. Christenson 2 Wins 1 Lost Era 4.20 & T. McGraw 2 saves Era 1.50. They lost game 1: 7-1 Game 2: they won 11 - 5, & Lost game 3: 7-2 they really played well in the tournament but just could not land that big punch that they needed. So as they pack up their equipment and leave for home this was one title fight they wish they could do over. The final countout for this team.

So here is the Spring Classic Championship Series match ups:

AL 1927 New York Yankees vs NL 1957 Milwaukee Braves this should be a good one.

Some final stats from the Tournament:

AL: Top Hitters: G. Goslin .579 Det, S. McInnis .500 Phil A's, G. Walker .500 Det.
Hr's: M. McGwire 4 Oak, & L. Gehrig 4 NYY. Rbi's: L. Gehrig 14 NYY. Longest hitting streak: 10 Games R. Alomar Tor. SB's R. Henderson - 2 & B. North -2. Wins 3 W. Moore NYY. Era: J. Palmer 0.00 Balt. Saves: 2- D. Eckersley Oak, 2- M. Rivera NNY, D. Ruether-2 NYY. K's: L. Gomez 16 NYY & O. HERNANDEZ 16 NYY.
____________________________________________________________________________________

NL: Top Hitters: A. Oliver .667 Pitts, C. Flood .556 St. Louis C. Hr's: 4 R. Cey L.A. Rbi's 9 H. Aaron Mil. & W. Covington 9 Mil. Longest Hitting Streak: J. Logan Mil-10 Games. SB's: 4- B. McBride Phil.
Wins: S. Carlton 4 Wins Phil. Era: 0.00 Many Tied. K's: 24 S. Carlton Phil. Saves: 2- T. McGraw Phil.

So as I move onto the Championship Series for the Spring Classic I can say that this has been a lot of fun to play this tournament with so many great teams and I look forward to making this a yearly thing with of course different teams with an invite to the champions from this years classic. I will update the Championship series upon completion I hope you have enjoyed the up dates as much as I have bringing it to you. Have a good week and you'll being hearing from me very soon.

Expect lots of bombs.

Ruth, Gehrig, Aaron, Mathews.  And that's just for starters.

Hi Guys,

 Well I just completed the Spring Classic Tournament Championship Series and the Champion is the 1927 New York Yankees over the 1957 Milwaukee Braves 4 games to 1 in the best of seven games. In Game 1 Yankees won 8-2
Game 2 Milwaukee won 5-4
Game 3 Yankees won 12-7
Game 4 Yankees won 8-4
Game 5 Yankees won 3-1 & W. Moore threw a 2 hitter for the Championship.
 The Yankees had an over all record in the tournament of 12 wins & 4 losts. They hit a team .287 Avg. & team Era: 3.28 in the championship series. Their leading hitters were J. Dugan .429, L. Gehrig .421, E. Combs .381, & B. Ruth .316 in the series. L. Gehrig & E. Combs each had 8 hits.               J.Dugan, L. Gehrig, & B. Ruth each had 6 rbi's. They hit a total of 50 hits, 35 Runs, 12 Doubles, 2 Triples, 4 Homeruns, Base on Balls 18 as a team in this series. Their pitching staff gave up a total of 17 ER, 4 Hr's, 6 BB, 12 K's W. Hoyt W-1 L-0 Era 0.00, W. Moore W-1 L-0 Era 2.45 18.1 Innings, H. Pennock W-1  L-0 Era 3.86, U. Shocker W-1 L-0 Era 8.59, G. Pipgras W-0 L-1 Era 3.37.
 So as you can see Murders Row put everyone else in this tournament on death row. The Braves were just another dead man walking. They ran into a team that was on a mission with somethiong to prove and they did just that. The Braves pitchers just could not handle the Yankee hitters. So after it was all said & done the 1927 Yankees are the champions of the 2009 Spring Classic. 
____________________________________________________________________________________

 For the 1957 Milwaukee Braves they played well until the championship series when they ran into a buzz saw. They only hit .242 as team with a staff Era: 6.55 and that was the telling story for them in this series. Their leading hitters were F. Torre .333, D. Cradall .333, J. Logan .300, H. Aaron .261. The team had 45 hits, 10 Doubles, 0 Triples, 4 Hr's, 19 Rbi's. The pitching staff stats L. Burdette W-1 L-1 Era 3.32, W. Spahn W-0 L-2 Era 6.60, B. Buhl W-0 L-1 Era 36.00 & W. Spahn pitched 15 innings giving up 15 hits, 13 runs, 11 ER, 2 Hr's. The staff overall gave up 32 ER, 35 Runs, 18 BB, 18 K's.
 This was a total dismantling of the Braves as a whole. They just never could hold back the Yankees when they had to, even in the game they won they had to battle back to win their only game of the series. I thought that this would have been a little better series but then again the Yankees were the clear cut class of the Spring Classic. I will say that this tournament was a lot of fun to play and I look forward to next years Classic and it will be interesting to see if the 27 Yankees can defend their title.

  Enclosing I have enjoyed playing this tournament and will move onto the Toilet Bowl Tournament with some of the worst teams in baseball history. I will post the results of that tournament as it moves along. When I'm finished with that one I will play my family tournament for bragging rights. I hope you have enjoyed the updates as much as I have posting them. So I tip my hat to the 27 Yankees for their championship title, now lets see if they have what it takes to repeat next spring. So long until then.

 I had alot of fun playing this tournament last year and I look forward to this upcoming years tourney.
I'm thinking of starting this on opening day. I will post the stats like I did last year after every series including the finals. I will post another announcment a couple of days before I start. So the count down is on. Thanks to all of those who followed along last year and those who join me this year I hope you get a chance to jump on for the ride. Have a great week everyone and good luck with your projects.
