The initial team selection draft for Prairieland 3 is finished and 23 APBA fans have chosen their teams for the April 28th tourney which will take place at the Ramada Inn Springfield (IL).
We certainly have more room if you weren’t part of the draft. If you would like to play in Prairieland 3, contact me or join the Prairieland 3 Facebook event and let us know. Here are details and the rules of the tournament.
Which teams were taken so far? Here’s the list…
Eric Ney, please contact us! It’s your pick. :)
As we hoped, there are a lot of teams from different eras within the 1920-1960 parameters.
1920s: 8 teams
1930s: 6 teams
1940s: 2 teams
1950s: 6 teams
It’s a bell curve favoring the 1920s.
The 1930 set was quite popular with a total of four managers selecting teams from that year. They include the Cubs, Yankees, Senators and the Phillies (your truly is once again attempting to win with a last place team). Three teams were chosen from 1954 (Dodgers, Braves and White Sox). The years 1922, 1927, 1931 all had two selected.
With the theme “Golden Age”, it fits that the Brooklyn Dodgers would be the top team taken. Rob Spatz chose the 1942 Bums, Joe Schall took the 1951 Dodgers and Kurt Bergland is taking the 1954 Trolley Dodgers.
And the record for the most brothers rolling dice goes as always, to the Daniels brothers with three. Ryan, Todd and Kyle will all be attending the tourney.
