1989 Complete Rosters

After playing with the current Oakland A's roster, I found them to be a bit boring, no offense, no power, solid pitching. I decided to redo the entire 1989 season with complete 25 man rosters to every team that was around then. This was my favorite season, had the two Bay Area teams in the World Series, and plenty of my favorite players around from my childhood. The rosters are based off of who was where at the end of the season. (R. Henderson on Oakland/ Polonia, Plunk Caderet on NYY for example) Attributes (ht/wt, jersey #, rt/lt hitting splits), equipment and somewhat likeness has been applied to all players in this set. Faces aren't perfect, but they look pretty good (pics from 1990 Score set from back of the cards were used). Stances and deliveries for the most part are off, but if anyone has better ideas for them, they can be added to the 80's/90's thread. Some retired player numbers are off, but 99% of player numbers are good. All major league teams from the time are done (updates when I get them will be applied). The Rays are subbed out for the "Major League" movie Indians/Yankee players (most are done, will be updated later. Other movie characters will be put on the D-Backs, not sure yet what to do with other 2 teams). Good to see that the late 80's rosters are getting so much love in this forum. I hope you enjoy them, they are a lot of fun to play with. They'll be uploaded today under the name: 1989 Schnell Rosters

Re: 1989 Complete Rosters

Also should mention that most of the stats came from baseball reference, and baseball almanac. Bill James book on pitchers repertoire was also used on pitch selection. Again, any info on stances or pitcher deliveries also appreciated.
