As the APBA Convention in Lancaster was getting underway on Friday, the new APBA Games Company Newsletter was released.
The big item announced was APBA Baseball 5.75. Pre-orders are now being taken for 5.75. As I’ve mentioned before, if you are interested in the game but have questions about compatibility or what exactly is included, read the FAQ that the APBA Company put out. It explains everything pretty thoroughly and might quell some of your concerns of upgrading.
Though I haven’t played computer APBA since before BBW, I decided to put in an pre-order. Once I receive the game, I’ll post a review of it. Then maybe I won’t seem like a such a doofus when I get questions from you BBW people.
APBA Convention in Alpharetta?
The item on the newsletter that struck me was bullet item #5. The APBA Company will host the 2013 APBA Convention in Alpharetta, Georgia. That was a new one on me.
“The 2013 APBA Convention will be sponsored by APBA in Alpharetta June 21-22. Further information will be coming.”
The wife won’t be happy about this. It’s two days before our anniversary. I was hoping to come to the next one.
Disk Replacement Program
The Disk Replacement Program is in place if you want to replace your floppy disk season with a CD at a cost of $5. One thing I just noticed:
FYI, the 1997 through 2001 season disks are now available without the fictitious names.
Small things do matter. More info on the Disk Replacement Program here.
Season Set Updates
The Negro League Baseball set orders are now being filled. The set includes 320 players on 20 teams that span 1910s-1940s. Here is the link to order.
One more thing, I heartily concur with Phil Grabar who encouraged the APBA Company to post the APBA Newsletter on its Facebook Page (I would add Twitter, too). I’ll be honest, sometimes the first time I read the newsletter is when someone else links to it from Facebook. I’ll bet I’m not the only one. It also encourages useful discussion too.
