The Universal Baseball Association, Inc., J. Henry Waugh, Prop.
Anyone read this?

Synopsis:

J. Henry Waugh is an accountant, albeit an unhappy one. However, each night after he comes home from work, Henry immerses himself in a world of his choosing: a baseball league in which every action is ruled by the dice.
The novel opens with the excitement of a perfect game in progress. Henry, as owner of every team in the league, is flush with pride in the young rookie, who is pitching this rarest of rare games: Damon Rutherford, "son" of one of the league's all-time greats.
When the young hurler completes the miracle game, Henry's life lights up. Giddy with happiness, Henry pushes himself and his league to the limits as he plays game after game so that he can see the young boy pitch again.

As fate would have it, the rookie Rutherford is killed by a bean-ball, a rare play from "the Extraordinary Occurrences Chart" in the game that Henry has invented and has used to see fifty-six "seasons" to conclusion. That Henry is also fifty-six marks a turning point in Henry's life. The "death" of the young pitcher on the table-top affects the real-life Henry in ways unimaginable. As Henry's personal life spirals out of control, he finally arrives at the solution that will save his league, his creation, and, ultimately, his sanity.

It looks absolutely right up our alley.

Very interesting idea. I've kinda been there. When I ran a real life BB group, we played set teams rather than the coaches making teams. This is to say, it wasn't really that important which coach won, more so the team. Teams were divvied up before the season started.

By the end, the group had dwindled to just me and I was left with ethical decision about killing off some of the super stars that had developed over the seasons.

I read this for an English seminar in college. A great read.

I recommend reading The Dice Man if you haven't already. A guy who decides what he is going to do based on dice rolls. This book has inspired people to do the same themselves.

Hey, my library has this on the shelves. I'm going to go check it out tonight. FUMBBL Book Club, count me in!

I'll make a blog post about it again after I read it.
