Welcome to the American Circuits

This is a fictional OOTP league based very loosely on Major League Baseball, but with some twists. We simmed 70 years of A.I.-run “pre-history” to establish a context for our first season with human GMs, which was 1946. The buttons on the left provide more detailed information about the league’s concepts and history.
