Why the 1977 American Association you ask?
For one, this is a season that has never been created for any tabletop baseball
game. Secondly, the 1977 season was a great one for minor league baseball. The
plan is to eventually create the PCL and International League for an entire 1977
minor league universe. And finally, the 1977 season saw some of the best pennant
races ever for the American Association, as well as many tremendous individual
performances by players that would go on to star in the show.
In the East Division, Omaha finished 4.5 games ahead of Indianapolis for the
title. The Royals were led by blinding speed of UL Washington and Willie Wilson
and the 16 wins of Gary Lance. Indianapolis got a great season from Dave
Revering, who batted .300 and hit 29 homers. Mario Soto and Tom Hume provided
great efforts on the mound. Evansville finished 10 games back of Omaha, but had
great seasons from Bob Molinaro (.303-17-91) and Lance Parrish (.279-25-90). Had
Milt Wilcox not been called up at mid-season, the Triplets may have challenged
for the Division title. Iowa finished 14.5 games back, but got solid
performances from Mike Squires (.323 24 SB's) and Larry Anderson (99 IP with 93
In the West Division, Denver took the crown, but Oklahoma City and Wichita
finished 1 game back; New Orleans finished in the cellar, but still finished
only 14 back. Denver was led by Frank Ortenzio who had one of the better seasons
in American Association history. Ortenzio batted .311, walloped 40 dingers and
drove in 126 runs. Oklahoma City was paced by 21 year old phenom, Lonnie Smith
who legged out 10 triples and stole 45 bases. Wichita was led by Jim Dwyer
(.332-18-70 28 SB's) and Dennis Lamp (11-4 2.93).
