  1. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #6. Detroit Titans One of the more easily recognizable logos in the league. The Detroit Titans simple logo will be a part of their look for the foreseeable future. The Titans wear a rather plain striped uniform, with splashes of bright blue from their socks and ballcap. The club aims for a traditional look and nails it with their solid logo and uniform.
  2. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #5. Boston Beetles The Boston Beetles are one of my favorite mascot nicknames (The original name generation produced some unique names like 'Boomers', 'Beermen' and 'Beetles', but I have grown to appreciate these nicknames as the MLB also has franchises with unique names). The Boston Beetles have often found themselves playing second fiddle to the Boston Brotherhood. In attempts to distance themselves the Beetles strive to be a more 'hip' team with a unique look that is recognizable across the league. Though the Boston Beetles have been struggling in recent years, their logo and uniforms are some of the nicest in the league.
  3. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #4. St Louis Steamers One of the few logos that I free handed (Most logos are modified from an initial clip-art piece I find to my liking). The St Louis Steamers logo shield is simple, but yet is a look that I foresee the team carrying for decades to come. The team's uniforms are perfect for the time period. The more I look at this team, I begin to think I have misplaced them, they could easily be my #2 favorite logo and uniform. A classic look for a championship winning ballclub.

  5. Most stadium construction will grind to a halt (due to materials being diverted to the war effort). One team's stadium is planned before the war, and they begin construction in early 1915, but due to limited supplies and several work stoppages the construction will last until the 1918 season). Many young players would either enlist or be drafted into service following their high school graduation. After WW1 there is an influx of talent to the league as these players return from the war and return to baseball.
  6. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #3. Ohio Royals The Royals exceptional shield and logo help to carry this team to a placement in the third position. The uniform though not necessarily visually pleasing, is typical of an early 20th-century team. The Ohio Royals have a unique look that is a solid example of early baseball fashion.
  7. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #2. Philadelphia Boomers The Boomers claim the 2nd position with one of the most radical logo shields in the league (For the time period). The uniform and logo has stayed the same for several years now, though the cannon has begun to be used on all advertising, tickets, and signage around the stadium. The cream and crimson colors of the Boomers have even transferred to the city of Philadelphia, following their 1908 UNBA World Championship.
  8. 1911-1912 Logo and Uniform Ranking (My Opinion) #1. Chicago Tribe The Tribe wear a uniform that is simple, but classic, and I can foresee them in this look for years to come. The team's logo was redesigned prior to the 1911 season and is a classic look that just fits the early 20th century.
  9. 1911 Awards United League: The United League decided to host an Official Celebration & Awards Banquet to honor the players, managers, & owners. It was hosted at Chicago Park (Illinois Packers). Everyone involved with the United League was invited. Tables were spread out across the outfield while a stage stretched over the infield. The event was a solid success. A select few reporters were allowed into the festivities and the United League followed up its UNBA league championship with another huge moment in the national news. The UL had decided to add an additional award: Most Valuable Manager. The league also handed out patches for the first time to the Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Pitcher in the league. Erik Kingsmore (P) had produced a breakout season in what could have previously been called an inconsistent career. In the process he claimed his second UNBA championship with the Illinois Packers, having been a part of Cleveland's rotation during their 1907 UNBA Championship. Clay Shutt (3B) led the UNBA in RBIs and was a key factor in the Chicago Tribe's second half offensive explosion. Finally, Aaron Barbuto was called up to the stage, to the sound of a standing ovation. Barbuto had been a key part of the Illinois Packer's rotation late in his career (1905-1907). As Barbuto's arm slowed he failed to find a spot in the UNBA and played for the Allentown (MD) Flyers in the NCBL from 1908-1909. There he was a key starter during their 1908 NCBL championship season. After a lackluster 1909 performance, Barbuto looked to become a manager at the collegiate level. This changed when Illinois fired their manager and contacted Barbuto, who accepted the position immediately. In Aaron Barbuto's second season as a manager, at only 35 years of age, he had accomplished the improbable, taking the worst team in the UNBA in two short years to the very top. Barbuto stood on the stage smiling as the cheers began to quite down, then he stepped to the microphone. 'I want to thank our Heavenly Father, my wife, the fans, and especially my team, for believing in my vision. Young guys believed (gestured towards Kevin Dixon). We landed some talent that the league had written off as second-rate (gestured towards Erik Kingsmore), but I knew... they had it here (pointed at his chest). And we all worked.... every member on the team... we worked our tails off. Now... we stand at the top... the top of the sporting world. I can only express, that I am honored to receive this award... and I guarantee I will continue giving everything to the greatest game in the world.' The Official Celebration & Awards Banquet was a resounding success and it was planned to become the regular conclusion for future United League seasons. United League: United League Most Valuable PItcher: Erik Kingsmore ( Illinois Packers, SP, 29 yr) .242 OBP, .302 SLG 24-11, 2.59 ERA, 78 Ks, 39 GS, 31 CGs, 2 SOs United League Most Valuable Player: Clay Shutt ( Chicago Tribe, 3B, 26 yr) 137 PO, .911 F% .395 OBP, .512 SLG, 130 RBIs, 126 Rs, 4 SBs, 8 HRs United League Most Valuable Manager: Aaron Barbuto (Manager, 35 yr) 2nd Season Illinois Packers, 2nd yr HC 94-60, MVPitcher, United League Title, UNBA World Championship National League: The National League would award Steve Tilton and Jeremy Say the Pitcher and Player of the Year awards.

  10. Thank you, I am glad people appreciate my work. (Disclaimer: Both of the following reviews could be wrong if something off-norm happens with my rolls. Just based off a quick glance at my sheets.) The Detroit Titans had solid seasons in 1904, & 1906-1909. Especially their 1906 second place finish. Unfortunately for their fans the Titans currently lack the depth to compete for a league title, though they have a few star players, namely 24-year-old Rob Cinnamond (LF). They have some promising pitching talent, but will need to acquire a few players to bolster their lineup before they will be able to contend for a league title like they did in 1906. The Ohio Royals won two league titles, in 1902 & 1905. Unfortunately, they lost both times in the UNBA World Series. Currently, they are one of the older rosters in the league. They signed Peter Martin (P) hoping to bolster their rotation, but his days as an elite ace pitcher appear to have crashed to a halt (5-14, 6.24 ERA). They will need to add substantial talent to their rotation and lineup before they are competing for a league title. I am entering my senior year at Greenville University (NCAA D3) where I am an Education Major with a Pre-Law focus. I started as the team's Longsnapper last year (Junior season), while also playing MLB sparingly. Football is my first love, but I am a huge fan of most sports.
