Replay game info?

Post by Jonathan Bernste » Sun, 19 Feb 1995 17:15:47


After the little league debacle today, I started thinking.  I know it
annoyed me a lot when APBA stopped using team nicknames ("Giants"
"Yankees" etc.) with their baseball games, but I don't know what other
games do.

Could anyone who knows what PTP, SOM, and the others do about this?  Do
they pay the fee to say "Cubs", or does Sammy Sosa play for the NL
Chicago team?  

What about in other sports?  Are there "Cowboys", or is it NFC Dallas
franchise?

I'm interested in all games, arcade and simulation.

Thanks,

JHB

Anyone who does is paying the Owners and MLB at least $25,000 for the
priviledge--per year!

And, to use the players names the MLBPA charges a similar price.
