1960 Pre-Season Prognosis

Thanks to John Ungashick, he has provided us with a well written pre-season prognosis, which gives insight into each team as we enter the 1960 season. Thanks John!

1960 Stadium Changes

Wabash Six (Bill Lanke) is vacating Griffith Stadium to move to the new, cold and windy Candlestick Park.

Steve Brunner is moving out of Comiskey Park into Yankee Stadium.

That leaves Griffith and Comiskey Park as your two available parks for 1960.

1961 Expansion owners announced

I am pleased to announce that veteran SBP Managers Dave Lauer and Steve Ehresman will be our Expansion team owners for the 1961 Expansion Drafts. Dave will be running his existing team through the end of the 1960 season, at which time I will find a new owner for that franchise.

I’ll have more info on the draft as we get close to the end of the 1960 season (rules have been online for a few years now), but we will likely hold the drafts live in the SPB Chat Room (as it will be the very first time we’ve conducted an expansion draft like this.

Very happy to have two veteran managers running these teams….and welcome Steve E. to SPB-60!

1960 Stadium Changes

The Riverside Robbers (John Turnbull) vacate Yankee Stadium for the more cozy confines of KC Municipal Stadium.

The Joliet Jakes (Terry Baxter) has vacated the brand new, cold, chilly and windy Candlestick Park for the more cozy confines of Connie Mack Stadium (And Maris and Mantle are thanking him).

That leaves Yankee Stadium and Candlestick Park as your (2) available ball parks for 1960. First come first served.
