NICKNAME/UNIFORM NUMBER REQUEST THREAD
« on: June 14, 2006, 08:11:27 AM »
A few good nicknames were brought up last night during the draft - I got a few in, but I think I may have forgotten 1 or 2.

So, here is the official NPBL nickname thread.  If you have a special tag for one of your players, put it here, and I'll enter it into the game.

I haven't any nickname requests at the moment...I'm picky about nick names...(hence nothing for James Yim stuck...all though Shuter's "Why Bother" made me chuckle)...but could I request some uniform # changes.

One is that I want to retire (at least while I'm the Maryland GM) the numbers worn by Harold Petrillo (#20) , James Yim (#23), and Norman Bates (#13) for being the corner stones of the franchise for well more than a decade.

The other thing I want to do is eliminate my duplicate uniform numbers for example Sammy Gillepsie and Warren Hickman both wear #19 on my active roster. On the same token....on my active roster I have 3 guys with #'s in the 90's and a couple more in the 70's and 80's (I know its just a stupid cosmetic thing...but it drives me nuts). I want to make my uniform #'s more traditional or old school.

If I make a list.. of # changes....would that be too much work for you to do? I'll probably only focus on active roster players and just assign numbers as my active roster changes over time.

Thanks man!

Okay...I exported my post draft file...so all of these guys should show up on the active roster after that. I won't worry about the minors until I need to.

Change the following

LF Calvin Pulley from 96 to 8
CF Shane Dollar from 84 to 4
CF Robert Kraus from 6 to 22
CF Ken Waddell from 23 (which was Yim's number) to 24
RF Felix Suarer from 38 to 9
SP Duncan Moyer from 90 to 30
SP John Munson from 70 to 15
SP Todd Neary from 91 to 12
SP Larry Riffle from 6 to 36
SP Darius Wells from 10 to 17
MR Mike Boxer from 88 to 18
MR Lemuel Harney from 81 to 51
MR Brian McFarland from 11 to 41
CL Jason Leaper from 10 to 40

I'd was tempted to give Shane Dollar the nickname "50" but decided not...it made me laugh...but it just seemed too silly.
