The special Christmas set features the Santa Claus (Indiana) Spikes and the North Pole Nicks, as well as the most requested fictional basball team we've received.

The Spikes and Nicks are both real teams. The Nicks played in the Alaskan Summer League, which featured some of the Nation's best college athletes. The Spikes are a junior league team, so I have taken the liberty of stocking them with Holiday themed players. I did take a few liberties with the Nicks roster as well, and included some of their better opponents.

As for the fictional team, I'll give a very easy clue. They have a horrible starting pitcher, and their shortstop is also a flying ace.

The Rosters for each team are as follows:

For the initial offering of Time Travel Baseball, I wanted to present it in the form that Stanley Frohlich intended, and that is to offer several players of varying abilities. Your skill as a general manager in composing a team with a salary limit will ultimately be the deciding factor in winning and losing. In the near future we will offer full seasons. But, I wanted to pay tribute to Stanley with our initial offering.

That’s not to say that I haven’t implemented a few changes in the new game. For one, I’ve included Ball Park effects. This adds an additional element of strategy as you build your team. You’ll tailor your team’s hitters and pitchers to your stadium, just like the real life general managers. I have also introduced new ratings and have fine-tuned card creation formulas. You’ll also see catcher’s and outfielder’s throwing arms have a great deal more impact with the latest version of the game.
All-in-all I have meticulously strived to keep a balance between adding more modern elements to the game, while keeping everything that makes Time Travel Baseball unique. Most importantly, I have kept the game’s strengths which are speed of play and pure fun factor.

Below you'll find several samples from the game.
