The Naperville Open wrapped up today with the Ridge Raiders taking home the Naperville Cup. Ovaltine Jenkins has been providing excellent coverage over in the forums. The Ridge Raiders gained 31,405 new fans and the right to have a classic team of their choice added to the game.
The next tournament will be played for the Sheboygan Cup. The first 16 teams to reach the 53081 zip code will be entered. If you are not one of the first 16 teams or if you are no where near Sheboygan, head for your favorite spring training hot spot. After the conclusion of the Sheboygan tournament, Cactus and Grapefruit League tournaments will be held in soon-to-be-disclosed spring training locations, with an Arizona city first on the list.
You can now check the records of classic teams that have faced each other in exhibition games on the site. When you visit the Rankings page, you will have the option to switch over to the Classic Exhibition Standings page. So far the 1987 Cleveland Indians have racked up the most wins.
This week's tip deals with getting the most out of your allotted miles. If you are trying to win over a population of stubborn fans, you do not need to move away from a city in order to try again. You can move to the city that you are currently in and it will not cost you any miles, just a move.

Any chances that the Sheboygan tournament will utilize a best of 3 or best of 5 format?
I'll give best of three a try. If I run into problems, I may need to revert back. If that happens, then only the first game of each round will count.
In the best of three format, each round's game one will always use starter #1, game two will use starter #2, etc. Each game will be worth 15 points. The winner will receive the population of Sheboygan as fans. If someone else wins over the fans before the tournament is finished, they will lose those fans without compensation. The winner will also receive a classic team of their choice and will have the option to have their team relocated anywhere in the continental US except Arizona and Florida.
