In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

Coming soon...Elseworlds

Posted 06-30-2009 at 12:48 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I have decided to have some fun with my APBA jones and have APBA "Elseworlds." The concept is similar to DC Comics' Elseworlds, only with several batmen instead of just one.

This previous scenario was a matchup between the Sox and Cubs and how it may have played out had Interleague Play begun in 1969; with APBA supplying the plays and results. Any similarities between the characters in the story and real people is a damn shame.

Cubs, Sox down to wire in finale

Chicago-June, 1969

By Joe Dick
Trib Reporter

The Cubs and White Sox met in the South Side ballyard for one more go-round before being forced by their respective schedules to cease hostilities and carry on with the rest of their seasons. The two teams sent off their fans with the kind of thriller that most of them had hoped for when they plunked down their hard-earned two bucks and change for the best seats in the house....

Cubs, Sox battle continues

Chicago, June 1969

by Joe Dick
Trib Reporter

Chicago's North-South Civil War continued today as the first place Cubs hooked up with the fifth place Sox in the second game of this three game set, played in front of yet another near-capacity crowd packing the South Side ballyard to the rafters. Today's duel featured a battle of lefthanders with Ken Holtzman of the Cubs bumping up against Tommy John of the White Sox.

Cubs, Sox inaugurate "interleague play" at Comiskey

CHICAGO-June, 1969

By Joe Dick
Trib Reporter

Chicago's two baseball titans today met at Comiskey for the first of a three game showdown to kick off "interleague play," a brand new concept introduced to baseball this year by the powers-that-be in an effort to increase attendance and take some of the spotlight away from Joe Namath and the boys on the gridiron.

Chicago's...

1964 and 1969 APBA

Posted 06-27-2009 at 11:12 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

My 1964 and 1969 seasons arrived in the mail today. Now I am whracking my brain
for potential matchups. Who to pit against who? The possiblities are endless. Of course, my "Close Call World Series" between the 1964 White Sox and 1969 Cubs will go on as planned. I'd like to do a couple of games before that.

I was going through the cards, putting them in their individual team envelopes (they came separate) and seeing names of guys who became even more famous after their...
