1969 Season Set Now Available for

Dugout Steps Baseball

The 1969 Major League Baseball season is one of the most exciting and memorable in baseball history.  1969 featured the first season of divisional play as the American League and National League each divided into two division with six teams in each division.  Expansion saw new teams in Kansas City, Seattle, San Diego and Montreal.  Changes to the strike zone and the mound were sure to increase offense after the year of the pitcher in 1968.  That only set the table for the wonderful action on the field.

The pennant races in the American League lacked drama. In the east, the Baltimore Orioles won 109 games and won the division by a whopping 19 games over the defending world champion Detroit Tigers. The surprise team was the Washington Senators. Under new manager Ted Williams, they went 86–76; it was their first winning season since joining the league in 1961. The Western Division race was a little closer, but the Minnesota Twins led most of the season and were never really threatened in winning the division by 9 games over the Oakland Athletics (who were the only other west team to finish over .500). The National League, on the other hand, was very dramatic. The Chicago Cubs won 35 of their first 50 games, and on August 16, they led the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals by 9 games. But the Mets proceeded to win 37 of their last 48 games while the Cubs went 20–28 in the same time period and the Mets won the division by 8 games. The West was even crazier. With 3 weeks to play in the season, 5 teams were all within 2 games of each other. The Houston Astros were the first to drop out of the race, losing 8 of 10. With two weeks to play, the San Francisco Giants led the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves by ½ game while the Cincinnati Reds were 2 games back. The Dodgers then lost 8 in a row and 10 of 11 to fall to 4th place. The Braves then went on a 10-game winning streak, ultimately clinching the division over the Giants on the next to last day of the season with a 3–2 win over the Reds. For the Giants, it was the 5th year in a row they would finish in 2nd place.

FTP SPORTS GAMES

Slide1.JPG

Whether the action is on the gridiron, ice, court or diamond, each sport comes to life as the players and individual match-ups decide the outcome of every game.  Every time a Quarterback throws a pinpoint pass, a Goalie stands on his head, a dominating Center throws down a power dunk or a pitcher shuts down an opposing lineup, the picture will be painted in front of you as though you were living the experience from the sideline, rinkside, courtside or on the dugout steps.

This picture comes into focus through an intuitive game design that translates true life athletic action into realistic play results on your tabletop.  No matter the sport, games are won and lost because athletes make plays or fail admirably in the attempt.  You will shake your head every time you call the perfect pass play but your receiver drops the ball or a defender tips the ball away at the last second!  You will groan every time a beauty of a goal is stolen from you when a Goalie makes a big save giving his team a burst of momentum!  You will smile when your athletic forward slices his way to the rim and dunks the ball over a Center the height of a redwood tree!  You will breathe a sigh of relief when your center fielder races toward the gap and makes an outstanding sliding catch to take away an extra-base hit!

As these images and games come to life, feeding your imagination through each ordinary, big or spectacular play, you will truly . . .

FEEL THE PULSE OF THE GAME!
