The Original Bitnet Fantasy Baseball League

Twelve seasons and counting

Welcome to the Original Bitnet Fantasy Baseball League (OBFLB) web site. We are a 24-team Fantasy Baseball league run completely through electronic mail and completely free of charge since we were founded in 1989. None of us use BITNET anymore, but we all did when it started, hence the name. If you don't know what bitnet is, then you will forever be considered a newbie to many of us. Files here are maintained by Jim Teresco, owner of the Amsterdam Ice-9, the oldest continually owned and operated team in the league (est. 1989). Suggestions and comments about the web site should be sent to terescoj@cs.rpi.edu.

Congratulations to the
1999b Champion Pahloose LaTreks and GM Randall M.
2000a Champion Louisville Sluggers and GM Rodger Payne
