Baseball Daily Digest/Strat-O-Matic Join to Determine the Greatest Team of All Time!

 

GLEN HEAD, NY; April 8, 2010 - In sports, one of the most popular questions to ask is “Who’s the Greatest Baseball Team of All-time?”  For almost 50 years, Strat-O-Matic has been helping baseball enthusiasts answer their questions time and again.

 

Recently, Baseball Daily Digest (BDD) and Strat-O-Matic formed a relationship that will allow BDD to attempt to answer one of the most commonly asked questions — What was the greatest team in Major League Baseball history?

 

Ask 100 intelligent baseball fans which franchise is the greatest in baseball history, and it wouldn’t be surprising if all 100 answers were the New York Yankees. When it comes to the greatest team in baseball history, there’s not as much consensus. Everyone has their own choice.

 

Enter the World (’s Greatest) Baseball Classic!

 

As the possibility of a potential simulated tournament of 64 great baseball teams throughout the history of the game was discussed, the BDD team agreed the idea was worth pursuing. The people at Strat were all for it, too…enough so that BDD will have more than a few copies of Strat-O-Matic’s computer and board games  — to give away.

 

Did your favorite classic team make the tournament? How can you score your own copy of Strat-O-Matic Baseball? When will the tournament take place?

 

Complete contest rules, entry dates and tournament teams can be found now at BDD!
