  1. 1993 Roster Update for Dynasty Play

    1993 was the last year I played and closely followed competitive baseball. I was delighted to find HAWK233391's fantastic mod, as well as the great add on by dennisjames71.
     
    I realized that what I wanted was to immerse myself completely in that 1993 world, and that to do this I would need full minor league rosters, and portraits for every player. I made small steps at adding a few players, but finally decided to do the whole thing.
     
    There are three files that you'll need. 
     
    The first is the database with the complete roster for 1993. Every major and minor league team has a full compliment of real players from that season with all of their stats individually edited. I spent well over a hundred hours on Baseball Reference combing over the detailed stats for all these players, and hopefully have created a roster that is relatively accurate. Without question, I will have overlooked things, or gotten lazy when I was tired, so if something seems off, tell me! I may do an update with more free agents and foreign players in the future.
     
    To install the roster, I recommend creating a new folder with the 1993 Total Classics mod and the 1993 Update. Then simply unzip my file, copy my "database" file into your 1993 mod "data" folder and replace everything.
     
    I am currently working on how to upload my portrait and face files, as they are giving me errors.
     
    Thank you to Hawk, Dennis, and especially to Dirtdog. He patiently answered my questions, walked me through uploading the files and, most importantly, spent a great deal of time ensuring that the new players matched up correctly with their face files. Thanks to him, playing this update should be a crash free experience! He will be releasing an update of his own as well.
     
    Any feedback, good or bad, is welcome, and I hope that you enjoy the updated 1993 experience!

    ---
     
    An updated KiwiLifter roster 1.2 for Dynasty play .mbe file also included. (All new player ID#'s are updated in this roster),

    Or you can use MVP edit to edit your roster with the new player ID #'s included in the .txt file.
     
    I also included portraits, some new with the changed ID #'s as well. To make it easy
     
     
    ** Don't use this roster, unless you also downloaded and installed the Total_Classics_1993_Cyberface-Update_Mega Pack & Pack 2 Add on,
    or you will get many crashes, because you won't have the faces to support the face IDs in the roster.
     
    If you just want the audio, then use MVPedit to manually change the player iD's from the list included.

  4. Total_Classics_1993_Cyberface-Update_Mega Pack

    * Please read the .txt file that says, Read me First! Before installing.
     
     
    This is a Total Classics 1993 Update (160 Faces New or Updated)
     
    The majority of the 160 faces are not mine. In no way am I taking any credit for creating them. All i did was simply 
    compile them, re-numbered them to fit the roster and created a handful more of my own.

    Credit:
    The majority of credit goes out to these 4 great MVP 2005 cyberface legends, but others contributed as well. Not sure of
    all the names?
    These 4 legends here, most of the faces came from there dedicated hard work.
    Homer
    Veezmack
    Jogar84
    Salva
     
    1993 was nearly 30 years ago, so most of the players that were able to be used were created just a short time after the
    games original release in 2005 or made as a classic face of some sort.
    So that is why credit is going out to these 4 great retired legends.
     
    But there were others,
    I included more credit for individual faces
    but if you see any of your work included in this file, PM me and I will credit you right away.
     
    Credit also to the Total classics 10 team, Jim825 and others. Some faces were pulled from that mod. Just not sure who made what?
     
    The object of this update is to improve on an already excellent TC1993 Mod, but it's just that an update, to improve the
    faces that were originally included and add a host more.

    Credit goes to HAWK233391, dennisjames71 and everyone else who helped to create this mod, without them these faces wouldn't
    be needed.
     
    This download is a collection of faces to replace the generic 901-915 faces, brand new faces
    and updates to already included faces. If the face was updated, The Best of Best was chosen!

    To avoid any crashes, if you will be adding these manually into your own edited roster, pay close attention to the 05/04
    face designation. Some faces that were checked in MVPedit from the original TC93 roster as 04, now have a 05 face and
    vice versa.
    But i strongly recommend using the excellent new updated roster by KiwiLifter, and it will all be taken care of for you.
     
    This was a labor of love, not to only improve on this mod, but also because 1993 was one of my favorite seasons to watch.

    With these faces, plus hours of crash testing and KiwiLifter's new updated roster, this mod is not only more complete,
    but it is also one of the few classic mods with a full MiLB roster, with real players, that multiple dynasty seasons can
    be played.

    This took weeks and entire weekends to do, downloading, sorting, testing & re-numbering, so I hope you enjoy it.

  6. Total Classics 1963

    Total Classics 1963
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    In the American League, the Yankees were in the 4th of 5 straight pennant winning years, and, led by MVP Elston Howard, cruised to the American League title by 10.5 games over the 2nd place White Sox.
     
    In the National League, most experts figured the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers would be locked in another battle for the pennant, much like 1962 when the Giants came from behind and beat the Dodgers in a playoff.  The Dodgers started slowly, perhaps feeling the hangover effect from blowing the pennant the year before.  They were 2 games under .500 in early May, and trailed the surprising St. Louis Cardinals by 4.5 games.  Then their pitching asserted itself, and on August 28, the Dodgers led the Giants by 5.5 games and the Cardinals by 6.5 games.
     
    The Cardinals proceeded to win 19 of their next 20 games and, while the Dodgers didn't exactly slump, they went "only" 14–7 during that same period.  Thus, the Dodgers went into St. Louis on September 16 to play the Cardinals in a 3-game series leading by only 1 game.  With the memory of blowing the 1962 pennant fresh in their minds, the Dodgers proceeded to sweep the Cardinals and take a 4-game lead with 7 games to go.
     
    The key game was the third one; the Cardinals led 5–1 in the 8th inning and a win would move them back to within 2 games of L.A.  But the Dodgers got 3 in the 8th and in the top of the 9th, late season call up Dick Nen, in only his 8th major league at bat, hit a pinch hit homer to force extra innings.  The Cardinals got a leadoff triple from Dick Groat in the 10th but could not score.  The Dodgers then scored an unearned run in the 13th inning and won, 6–5.  The disheartened Cardinals then lost their next 3 games as well while the Dodgers won 3 of their next 4 to clinch the pennant with 6 games left.
     
    In the World Series, the Dodgers swept the Yankees in four straight games.  The Dodgers' stellar pitching staff, anchored by left-hander Sandy Koufax and right-hander Don Drysdale, was so dominant that the vaunted Yankees, despite the presence of sluggers such as Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris in their lineup, never took a lead against Los Angeles the entire Series.

  7. MVP Total Classics 1987

    Total Classics 1987 v1.0
    by Savoy Special
     
    Inspired by Ace152’s MVP 1987 1.0 rosters, and after figuring out how to load in rosters, portraits, stadiums, music, background and stadium select screens, I have created a functioning version of what could reasonably be called MVP Total Classics 1987 Version 1.0.
     
    -------------------------------------------
     
    *** NOTES ***
     
    - Divisions are broken down as follows:
     
    AL East (Yankees, Blue Jays, Red Sox, Orioles, Tigers)
    AL Central (Indians, Royals, White Sox, Brewers)
    AL West (Twins, Athletics, Rangers, Mariners, Angels)
    NL East (Mets, Phillies, Expos, Cardinals)
    NL Central (Pirates, Cubs, Astros, Reds)
    NL West (Braves, Dodgers, Giants, Padres)
     
    - The mod includes a 1987 MLB schedule and the most period-specific 1987 versions of each of the then-MLB 26 stadiums that have been made available by the various MVP 2005 modders.  Numerous classic stadiums and stadium select screens are also included.  I will say that  I have experienced crashing issues with Parc Labatt and Braves Field.
     
    - I used tebjr’s Total Classics 1988 uniforms and uniform select screens, since there were very minimal uniform changes in MLB between 1987 and 1988. 
     
    - None of the audio is accurate - the players are called out as players from the original 2005 version by the announcers. Also, there are no cyberfaces, and the Manny Ramirez ‘flash’ that pops up when you first enter the game is there.  These are all corrections that I need to make before I could consider this a final, fully corrected version of MVP Total Classics 1987.

  10. Total Classics 1955

    Total Classics 1955
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    In the end, the 1955 baseball season belonged to the Brooklyn Dodgers.  After a heartbreaking string of near-misses that began in 1947, the Dodgers finally had their year, breezing to the pennant and nipping the Yanks in seven tough games to win it all.  It was the most balanced Dodger team in years. Roy Campanella fully recovered from the hand injury that hampered him in 1954 and once again led Brooklyn, batting .318 with 32 home runs en route to a third MVP Award.

    Duke Snider belted 42 round-trippers with a .309 average and topped the league with 136 RBI and 126 runs scored. Don Newcombe rebounded from a poor season and pitched to a masterful 20-5 record, while Clem Labine was reliable out of the bullpen with 13 wins and 11 saves.

    Sophomore skipper Walter Alston had the Dodgers flying out of the starting gate. They won their first ten -- 20 of their first 22 -- and were ahead by 12-1/2 on July 4. Eddie Mathews's 41 homers weren't enough for the Braves and Willie Mays's 51 dingers and .319 average weren't enough for the Giants as the Dodgers won the pennant by 13-1/2 games over Milwaukee and 18-1/2 over New York .

    The Yankees and Yogi Berra, who won his third MVP, took a sixth American League flag in seven years.  The Bronx Bombers, able to survive pitching problems with good years from Bob Turley and Don Larsen and with Mickey Mantle (a league-high 37 homers), held off Cleveland by 3 games with a 96-58 record. The Indians got 16 victories and a league-topping 245 strikeouts from Rookie of the Year Herb Score, but they lacked offensive punch and never really made a run for it.

    Far and away, the highlight of 1955 was the World Series. The Yankees took the first two games 6-5 and 4-2. The Dodgers came back in the next three: Campanella had three hits and three RBI, including a two-run homer, to give Brooklyn and Johnny Podres an 8-3 win in game three. Campanella, Gil Hodges, and Snider all homered in the following contest and Labine pitched the final four frames, as the Dodgers evened the Series with an 8-5 victory in game four.

    In game five, Snider hammered two more home runs and Sandy Amoros hit one, as the Dodgers won 5-3. The Yankees dominated the Dodgers in game six, winning 5-1 behind Whitey Ford's four-hitter. Podres took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth of game seven, but Billy Martin led off with a walk and then Gil McDougald bounced an infield single.

    Berra strode to the plate for the go-ahead run. He lofted a fly ball deep into the left field corner. Amoros made the catch with an outstretched arm at the last second, then got the ball back to the infield to double up McDougald. Podres completed the eight-hit shutout that, at long last, crowned the Dodgers World Champions.

  11. Total Classics 1919

    Total Classics 1919
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    With the end of World War I in 1919, both baseball and the nation as a whole returned to business as usual.  For some ballplayers during the 1919 baseball season, "business as usual" unfortunately meant plotting with gamblers to fix games.  Gambling-related scandals had been a part of baseball going back to the mid-19th century, but in 1919 the national pastime suffered the ultimate corruption: the intentional throwing of the 1919 World Series by eight members of the Chicago White Sox.
     
    In a season limited to 140 games by a baseball establishment still worried about its patriotic image, Cincinnati compiled a 96-44 record to run away with the National League pennant by 9 games over second-place New York.  The Reds had a two-prong attack.  They had Edd Roush, Heinie Groh, Jake Daubert, and little leadoff hitter Morrie Rath; and they had a staff that allowed the fewest runs in the league and included 20-game winners Slim Sallee and Hod Eller, as well as Dutch Ruether, who recorded the third-lowest ERA in the league at 1.81.
     
    In the American League race, an illusory powerhouse in Chicago had an unexpectedly difficult time shaking Cleveland and New York -- or perhaps the group later responsible for the 1919 World Series fix was dumping games for money down the stretch -- before finally finishing at 88-52, 3-1/2 up on Cleveland.  The White Sox offense was powered by the .351-hitting Joe Jackson, Eddie Collins and Happy Felsch. Their pitching staff allowed the second-fewest runs in the league thanks to 29-game winner Eddie Cicotte and 23-game winner Lefty Williams.
     
    The Reds won the crooked best-of-nine 1919 World Series five games to three.  The most dramatic moments -- seen in retrospect, as the scandal didn't break until the following year -- came in games three and six, when pitcher Dickie Kerr overcame the best efforts of his eight dishonest teammates to win 3-0 and 5-4.
     
    The best-known player in on the fix, Jackson, always maintained afterward that he was innocent. He pointed to his 1919 World Series-high .375 batting average and six RBI, although he never explained why he accepted money from the conspirators beforehand with free knowledge of their plans.

  13. Total Classics 1948

    Total Classics 1948
    By kyleb
     
    The 1948 baseball season saw many surprising events, new records, the death of Babe Ruth, and a few close calls.  Baseball came within one game of having an all-Boston World Series in 1948, as the Braves went 91-62 to take the National League flag by 6 1/2 games over St. Louis, and the Red Sox finished the regular season tied with Cleveland at 96-58.
     
    The star of the National League was 27-year-old, second-time MVP Stan Musial, who turned in the finest all-around year of his career.  "Stan the Man" led the National League in batting, runs, RBI, hits, total bases, doubles, triples, on base average and slugging.  He came within one home run of leading the National League in every major offensive category.
     
    The Braves were led by Bob Elliott -- who hit 23 homers and drew 131 walks, and .300 hitters Eddie Stanky, Al Dark, Tommy Holmes, Mike McCormick, and Jeff Heath.  On the pitching side, the Boston fans' cry was "Spahn and Sain and two days of rain."  Johnny Sain went 24-15 to lead the National League in wins, complete games and innings.
     
    Warren Spahn, 27, went 15-12 with 16 complete games and 257 innings.  No other Braves pitcher won more than 13 games.  Apparently, there were enough rain-outs that Boston led the National League in team ERA, complete games, and fewest walks allowed.
     
    The American League race was still up for grabs at the All-Star break with Cleveland, Philadelphia, New York and Boston vying for the title.  New York's Joe DiMaggio led the American League in home runs, and the Yanks' Tommy Henrich led in runs and triples.  As the second half wore on, however, the best hitting team, Boston, and the best pitching team, Cleveland, rose to the top.
     
    The Red Sox featured batting champion Ted Williams, Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky, who was tied with Williams for third in the American League in runs.  Williams batted .369, but lost out in the MVP voting to Cleveland shortstop Lou Boudreau, who was runner-up in batting at .355.
     
    The Indians' main strength, like the Braves', was pitching.  Unlike their National League rivals, however, the Indians staff was a deep one.  The Tribe featured two 20-game winners in Gene Bearden and Bob Lemon, a 19-game winner in Bob Feller and spot starters Steve Gromek, Sam Zoldak, and Satchel Paige (who went a combined 24-10).
     
    A coin flip determined that the one-game American League pennant playoff would be played at Boston's Fenway Park, and almost 30 years to the day before Bucky Dent's famous home run over the Green Monster, shortstop Boudreau won the pennant for the Indians with two home runs.
     
    Cleveland then proceeded to make it a clean sweep of Boston, polishing off the Braves in the World Series.  Cleveland's Feller went 0-2, but the Indians beat the Braves in six games on great pitching performances by Bearden (who pitched a shutout in game three), Gromek (who posted one win and a 1.00 ERA), and Lemon (who triumphed in two games).

  14. Total Classics 1979

    Total Classics 1979
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    The Pittsburgh Pirates led the league in outfits during the 1979 baseball season. Their arsenal of uniforms was so vast -- black caps and yellow jerseys, yellow caps and white jerseys -- that they had 64 possible combinations at their disposal.
     
    The Pirates' lineup of players was just as varied as their line of garb.  They featured an outfielder who looked like a Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker (6' 5", 230-pound Dave Parker), and a pitcher who looked more like a placekicker (6' 4", 170-pound Kent Tekulve).  And, of course, the Pirates had Willie "Pops" Stargell, an inspiring presence at bat and in the clubhouse.  The Pirates, whose theme song was "We Are Family," won the National League East by 2 games over Montreal.
     
    The World Champion Yankees didn't even come close to repeating, as they lost two key players.  Relief ace Goose Gossage was sidelined for two months by an injury he incurred in a fight with teammate Cliff Johnson, and catcher Thurman Munson was killed in an airplane crash in August.  The Baltimore Orioles ended the Yankees' three-year divisional reign, winning 102 games. Cy Young winner Mike Flanagan (23-9) paced the pitching staff, while veteran Ken Singleton (111 RBI) spearheaded the offense.  They beat the Brewers by 8 games and the Red Sox by 11-1/2.
     
    The American League West was tight to the end, as four teams ranked within 6 games of first place.  The California Angels, starring MVP Don Baylor (139 RBI), took their first division crown.
     
    The big news in the senior circuit was Pete Rose's preseason defection to the Philadelphia Phillies.  His arrival did not promote the Phils to champs just yet, as they settled for fourth place.  The Rose-less Reds were still good enough to win the National League West.  Though the Big Red Machine was losing its hitting punch, its pitching was as strong as ever -- Tom Seaver went 16-6.
     
    Pittsburgh swept Cincinnati in the National League Championship Series, though it took two extra-inning wins to do it.  Stargell cracked two homers as the Pirates outscored the Reds 15-5.  Baltimore defeated California in four games in the American League Championship Series, which included three nail-biting finishes and a shutout.
     
    The Orioles and the Bucs battled through a seven-game 1979 World Series.  After losing the opener, Pittsburgh evened it up when Manny Sanguillen drove in Ed Ott with a ninth-inning single.  Baltimore won the next two games to go up three games to one, but the Pirates stormed back.  They won the final three games -- 7-1, 4-0, 4-1 -- to take the 1979 World Series.

  16. Total Classics 1939

    Total Classics 1939
    By Jim825, dennisjames71 & kyleb
    The 1939 baseball season marked a turning point in the history of the American League, as it lost one of its greatest players, Lou Gehrig.  Gehrig's teammates had noticed something wrong with their 35-year-old leader early in the 1938 season when the ball no longer jumped off his bat.  He had rallied to finish with only slightly sub-par numbers: a .295 batting average, 114 RBI, and 29 homers.
    Steadily deteriorating from the start of spring training in 1939 through eight games into the regular season, the "Iron Horse" finally called it quits, ending baseball's longest consecutive-game streak at 2,130.  Shortly afterward, he was diagnosed with the disease that carries his name.  
    On July 4, Lou Gehrig was given the day at Yankee Stadium at which he delivered his famous line: "Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth,"  He was dead by 1941.  Gehrig retired with a .340 lifetime batting average, 1,990 RBI, 493 homers -- a record 23 of them grand slams -- and a slugging average of .632, third on the all-time list behind Babe Ruth and Williams.
    A very deep Yankees team replaced Gehrig with Babe Dahlgren and returned to the business of baseball.  They were in a close pennant race with Boston, which stayed within striking distance of the lead until the All-Star break.  In late July, however, New York kicked into high gear and left the Red Sox in the dust, finally winning its fourth consecutive pennant by 17 games.
    The New York attack was led by MVP Joe DiMaggio (who won the batting title at .381 and drove in 126 runs, second-best in the American League), Red Rolfe (who scored 139 runs and hit 46 doubles, both league-leading figures), and 22-year-old outfielder Charlie Keller (who was fifth in hitting at .334).
    Cincinnati celebrated the 70th anniversary of the champion 1869 Reds, baseball's first openly professional team, and the 20th anniversary of their 1919 World Championship by winning the 1939 National League pennant.  The Reds were led by MVP pitcher Bucky Walters, who went 27-11 with a league-low 2.29 ERA.  Teammate Paul Derringer won 25, second-best in the league, and recorded the fourth-best ERA at 2.93.  The Reds pitched their way to the National League flag by 4-1/2 games over a hard-hitting St. Louis team that featured Johnny Mize, the batting champ at .349 and home run leader at 28. Ducky Medwick batted .332 and had 48 doubles (second only to teammate Enos Slaughter's 52 doubles) and 117 RBI.
    Cincinnati became the fourth National League champion in four years to run into the New York Yankees' World Series buzz saw, falling in four games by a combined score of 20-8. After losing 2-1 in a game one pitchers' duel between Derringer and Ruffing, the Reds lost by scores of 4-0, 7-3, and 7-4. The Yankees outhomered their opponents 7-0.

  18. Total Classics 1934

    Total Classics 1934
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    In the 1934 baseball season, Bill Terry's New York Giants had another good showing, scoring 760 runs, second-best in the league, and allowing only 583, the fewest of any National League staff.  Young Mel Ott hit .326 with 119 runs scored (second only to Paul Waner's 122) and drove in a league-leading 135; Ott also drew 85 walks and tied with Ripper Collins for the home run title at 35.
    It was, however, the rough and tumble St. Louis Cardinals, nicknamed the "Gashouse Gang" after the street gangs of one of Manhattan's worst neighborhoods, that won the pennant by two games in an exciting race.  New York had led for 127 straight days, when on September 28, ace Dizzy Dean defeated the Reds 4-0 to bring the Cardinals even with New York.  The next day, Dizzy's younger brother Paul won 6-1, while the Giants lost to Brooklyn.  The day after that, the elder Dean shut out Cincinnati again, 9-0, to give St. Louis a lead it never relinquished.
    Dizzy had been ridiculed for his preseason promise that the Dean brothers would win 45 games.  By season's end, they had exceeded that total by four, and the 30-7 Dizzy was voted National League MVP.  The other principal "Gashousers" were second baseman/manager Frankie Frisch, who hit .305; Collins, who batted .333 and drove in 128 runs; Leo Durocher, the league's top-fielding shortstop; Pepper Martin, the league's stolen base leader (23); and Ducky Medwick, who hit .319 with 18 triples.
    Hard-hitting Detroit batted .300 -- the only major league team to do so -- on its way to a 101-53 record, seven games better than a New York Yankees team that finished second in runs scored.  The 39-year-old Babe Ruth gave only a .288, 22-homer season performance; Lou Gehrig carried most of the weight, winning the Triple Crown with a .363 average, 165 RBI, and 49 homers.  The New York pitchers rebounded to post a league-low 3.76 team ERA courtesy of titlist Lefty Gomez (who went 26-5 with a 2.33 ERA), 19-game winner Red Ruffing, and 14-game winner Johnny Murphy.
    The Tigers lineup featured an awesome five 100-run men (including Charlie Gehringer, the league leader with 134), and four 100-RBI men (led by first baseman Hank Greenberg with 139).  MVP Mickey Cochrane hit .320 and was credited with turning around the Tiger pitching staff, which finished second in team ERA at 4.06.
    The Dean duo was the deciding factor in the close-fought, seven-game 1934 World Series. The brothers each recorded ERAs under 2.00 and won two games.
    The 1934 World Series ended on a bizarre note, when in the midst of a St. Louis rout, the Detroit crowd interrupted the game to shower left fielder Medwick with garbage to protest his sixth-inning hard slide into Tiger third baseman Marv Owen.  Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis ruled that the Cardinal outfielder leave the game for his own safety.
    The departure made no difference to the Tigers, who went on to lose by a score of 11-0.

  19. Total Classics 1995

    Total Classics 1995
    By kyleb
    The stars of Major League Baseball returned to the field in 1995 after the image-tarnishing strike that led to the cancellation of the 1994 World Series.
    Shortened to 144 games, the 1995 season didn’t begin until late April. Fans  were still bitter after the 1994 season let the teams hear it when the season finally started.
    In the American League, the Cleveland Indians bludgeoned teams on the way to a 100-44 record. The Tribe cruised past Boston and Seattle to set up a matchup with the Atlanta Braves.
    The Braves, losers of the World Series in 1991 and 1992, were led by one of the great pitching seasons of all time by Greg Maddux. Paired with Tom Glavine and John Smoltz, the trio would not be stopped in the 1995 World Series and defeated Cleveland four games to two.
    Maddux won his fourth consecutive Cy Young award in ’95. Albert Belle became the first player to ever hit 50 home runs and 50 doubles in one season. Hideo Nomo and his mesmerizing delivery took home the NL Rookie of the Year award.
    On a personal note, 1995 was the first season I followed as a young fan. Living in a state without a team and my only exposure to baseball being through movies and Sportscenter, I took on the Cleveland Indians as my favorite team. It was definitely a special time to discover the game.
    I want to thank BallFour and Rising Son for their help on this mod. BallFour was game whenever I discovered a slight variation on a uniform for the mod. Rising Son took care of the overlay, so it looks much better than if I did it myself.
    Total Classics 1995 features more than a dozen year-specific cyberface updates, special patches specific to 1995 on several uniforms and almost an entirely new portrait set from my last mod, Total Classics 1997. I believe only one player is missing a portrait.
    I feel that this is the best roster set I’ve ever put together. It involved more player-specific research than I had ever done before, referencing books and magazines of the era to better reflect pitcher repertoires and attributes.
    I hope everyone loves this mod and much as I enjoyed making it!

  21. Total Classics 1971

    Total Classics 1971
    Original release by BRobby05
    Revised by Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    The 1971 baseball season was Vida Blue's year -- until October, when the veteran Baltimore Orioles showed the 21-year-old Oakland pitcher what pressure baseball was.  They themselves were then taught a lesson by the Pittsburgh Pirates, World Series winners for the first time since 1960.
    Blue's phenomenal first full season -- 24-8, 301 strikeouts, a league-leading 1.82 ERA, eight shutouts -- earned him both the American League's Cy Young and Most Valuable Player Awards. 
    Pittsburgh's speed, power, defense and pitching were too much for the National League East. Roberto Clemente led with a .341 average. His 86 RBI ranked second on the team, right behind Willie Stargell's 125.  Although no Pirate pitcher won 20 games, the hurlers were well-balanced and had an ace in the hole in Dave Giusti, whose palmball brought in five wins and a league-high 30 saves.
    In the NLCS, the Pirates overpowered the Giants, who had followed Bobby Bonds (.288 average, 33 home runs, 102 RBI) to a division title.  After losing game one to the Giants, the Pirates turned on the power. They surged to a 3-1 series victory that featured a three-homer second game by first baseman Bob Robertson and homers by Richie Hebner in games three and four.
    With Catfish Hunter's 21-11, 2.96 ERA season and the muscle of Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando, Rick Monday and Mike Epstein, Blue and the A's marched to a 101-60 record and a 16-game edge over Kansas City for the AL West title.  The Orioles won 101 games as well, on the pitching of a record-tying four 20-game winners: Dave McNally (21-5), Mike Cuellar (20-9), Pat Dobson (20-8), and Jim Palmer (20-9).  The Orioles also led the American League in runs scored for a convincing 12-game lead over second-place Detroit.
    Orioles pitching was the key to their 3-0 sweep of the A's in the ALCS. Baltimore's hitting, however, couldn't keep pace in the 1971 World Series, and Pittsburgh won in seven games behind two complete game wins by Steve Blass.  Blass was called upon after Baltimore whipped the Bucs at home 5-3 and 11-3. The Pittsburgh pitcher responded with a three-hitter and a 5-1 win.
    Baltimore scored three runs in the top of the first inning of the next game -- but it was 22 innings before the Orioles scored again, as Bruce Kison and then Nelson Briles and Bob Moose kept them in check (Briles pitched a shutout in game five).
    The Orioles came back to win game six in ten innings, but Blass slammed the door in game seven with a four-hit, 2-1 win.

  22. Total Classics 1976

    Total Classics 1976
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    During the 1976 baseball season, fireworks reigned as the United States celebrated its bicentennial and baseball's National League honored its 100th season.
    The year also marked Marvin Miller's tenth anniversary as executive director of the Players Association. After the 1975 season, Miller went to bat for pitchers Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally, who were declared "free agents" by an arbitrator. The ruling so angered the owners that they locked the players out of spring training.
    The season did begin on schedule -- thanks to the intervention of commissioner Bowie Kuhn -- but the sport of baseball had been irrevocably changed. Free agents became commonplace and baseball salaries skyrocketed.
    Mike Schmidt, the Phillies' third baseman, opened the season by slugging four of his major league-leading 38 homers in an 18-16 shootout with Chicago. Schmidt led a team loaded with recently acquired veterans, including outfielders Bobby Tolan, Jay Johnstone, and Garry Maddox; second baseman Dave Cash; and pitchers Jim Lonborg and Tug McGraw.  Philly won 101 games in 1976, finishing 9 up on Pittsburgh.
    Cincinnati continued to dominate in the West, winning 102 games. Baseball's best second baseman, Joe Morgan (.320 average, 27 home runs, 111 RBI), walked away with his second consecutive MVP trophy.
    After a two-year hiatus, the Yankees returned to a renovated Yankee Stadium and played like the Bombers of old.  With Chris Chambliss, Willie Randolph, Graig Nettles, and Thurman Munson guarding the infield; speedster Mickey Rivers patrolling in center; and Sparky Lyle leading the American League with 23 saves, the Yanks finished first in the East, 10½ up on the Orioles.
    Kansas City's 23-year-old George Brett led the American League with a .333 average, winning a disputed batting title over teammate Hal McRae by one point. Brett won the crown on the last day of the season against Minnesota; he smacked one to outfielder Steve Brye, who seemed to deliberately misplay the ball, allowing Brett to get his needed hit.  The hit didn't affect the American League West standings, though, as Kansas City finished 2½ up on the second-place A's.
    The Reds swept the Phils in the National League Championship Series in three games. The American League Championship Series, however, was a classic five-game series.  Although KC's Brett hit a sizzling .444, the spotlight was on Chambliss, New York's first baseman. Chambliss hit .524 with eight RBI, including a homer in the bottom of the ninth of game five -- a shot fans still talk about.
    The 1976 World Series, however, was a disappointment.  Billy Martin's Yankees had little left against the powerful Big Red Machine, as the Reds won in four. Bench ripped the Yankees' pitching for a .533 average, making Cincinnati the first National League team since 1922 to repeat as World Series Champions.

  24. Total Classics 1976 Patch #1

    Use TiT to install the following patch.
    *This patch will correct the portrait for 3B Brooks Robinson of the Baltimore Orioles.
    *Also, this will correct the Chicago Cubs road uniforms from the gray color to the corrected sky blue road uniforms they wore that season.  The uniform image I used from the Dressed to the Nines website appeared gray; but after viewing actual photos of the 1976 road uniforms, I realized that they were a sky blue-ish color instead.
    *The corrected uniform select file for the Cubs is also included in this ZIP file.
     
    Enjoy!

  25. Total Classics 10 (BaseUp! Roster Edits)

    This set of rosters applies the global edits (predominantly fielding) to the TC10 roster pack.  This is only being done as a matter of preference/option and in no way reflects any problems or difficulties with the original TC 10 rosters.  In MVPedit, ranges for many attributes are 0-15.  No individual edits have been done to any players.  Readme file included for ranges. 
    Enjoy!

    Thanks to Jim for this great, great mod and allowing me to add this!!
