In 1959 I was an 11 year old pitcher/second baseman for the Light Blue team in the Gahanna Little League. I was a pretty good pitcher and a "good field no hit" second baseman. To get on base I would crowd the plate to get walks or let the ball hit me. The Mick was my idol and I loved to play Negamco Baseball, wiffle ball, and army on the island out back of my house. Looking back, I believe this was the happiest time of my young life.
I will be replaying the 1959 season using the DMB deluxe season disk. I have accessed numerous sources, such as player biographies and fifties baseball reference books to add some funny and/or interesting information to the replay. I will post some of the replay here on the Replays and Great Games forum but will post the complete replay on my blog. The blog is located at http://mayhewbc.blogspot.com/
