The 1897 season has 2 pages per team; starters and pitchers. Roster size varied in 1897 so most teams in this set will have from 15-17 players. 1897 was Honus Wagner's rookie season.
The 12 teams from the 1897 season are all from the NL. The NL was the only pro league operating in 1897 with the previous AA league defunct and the AL just a few years away from forming. This set comes with a special pitcher use restriction chart for baseball in the 1800's. There is also a table for error conversions which would allow you to play an 1897 team against a modern season. Modern seasons are sold separately.
A new 4 page PDF supplement is available for download. Included are the new SO/Walk pitcher ratings for previous seasons.
Note: When you place your order for this PDF, I believe the cart requires you to fill in your address info even though I will send your file via email. My apologies but the check out system has no way of turning the address requirement off.
