Retroactive All-Star Game Project
The Midsummer Classic is Back!
Cast Your Vote For The 1923 All-Stars!
On Tuesday, July 10, at the gleaming behemoth that is the new Yankee Stadium, the throats of sixty thousand fans will thunder to the heavens in appreciation of the greatest baseball players on this or any planet arrayed before them, the best representatives of the Two Great Leagues battling each other to demonstrate the supremacy of the one League over the other!
Who will be the leading lights who will start this All-Star Game and put on the best possible display of baseball acumen for the pleasure of the baseball fans of the Bronx this year? Surely Babe Ruth and Rogers Hornsby and Grover Cleveland Alexander and Walter Johnson will be in the starting lineup, will they not? How about Harry Heilmann? Or Urban Shocker? Cy Williams? Or Stan Coveleskie? Only YOU, the intelligent fan, will have a say!
This year, the game will be broadcast for the first time by wireless on station WJZ, broadcaster of the first World’s Series game last year, so that all may have the chance to hear the action AS IT HAPPENS. Your vote has never counted so much as it does this year. So do your duty as a proud baseball fan and VOTE NOW!
The games will be played using Out of the Park 14, and the game account and box score will be posted over at Seamheads.com.
Vote for the 1923 All-Star starters and pitchers here:
Voting will be open until 3:00 a.m. ET on December 20, 2013. At that time, we will count up the votes, put together the rosters, and sim the game.
