The Negro League All-Stars for Strat-o-MaticCourtesy of our friend Scott Simkus, the Negro League All-Star set is now available for Strat-o-Matic:
I’ve spent the past several years working as a consultant to the Strat-O-Matic game company, focusing on their Negro League All-Star set. The opportunity is really the product of happenstance, lucky timing on my part.
But it is now, and Scott talks about what went into it and why it was possible to do it today. Neat stuff regardless, but especially so if you're a strat guy. Or girl.
The set can be found here. New Strat website too.

And for those who are APBA (computer game) guys, Theodore Kerchner has created a Negro League franchise all-star disk here:
The APBA game company did a Negro League set in 1994, I think, but it’s no longer available, afaik.

APBA and Strat-O-matic have far different research standards- there is no superior to the research Strat does on individual seasons and projects like this and HOF set

As much as I love APBA, I’ve got to agree with gbewing. Strat’s research methods are nothing short of amazing. I would say, though, that Tom Tippet-era DMB was a tad better, particularly on the fielding aspect of the game.
